****New update on bumper design. ****
I received an email from Sarah at Exp-One today. James has two CAD designs in work. The difficulty with this particular bumper design has been how to work around the headlights. First design works around oem mounting location. The second one incorporates the headlights into the bumper. I'm going down to the shop on Friday so they can take more measurements and photos. I'll see if I can sneak a peek at the designs so the community can have a teaser.
I met with James at Exp-One today. The design is looking kind of cool and mean (bad ass). It is still a work in progress. Probably will not have a prototype next month.*sad*
Just the front for now until the first couple are built, then maybe the rear. I promised not to release any photos.
It is based off of a GMC design, then modified to fit the KL contours. Winch mounts, hi-lift Jack points, and shackle points. Now that I've seen the two designs, I like the one that incorporates the headlights. Much cleaner and more natural looking. See attached hand sketch. Not the best, but hopefully you get the idea.
James' main concern was the washer reservoir, which has to be located. We discussed his ideas and some of mine. I also enlightened him about the OE air intake, which also needs to be removed.
Nancy has been taking contact info for all calls and emails. She promised to contact everyone when the design was complete.
