Front Bumper Done, Shipping Soon...

The BTF front bumper for the NISMO Stuff racing Frontier is finally complete.  The picture here is without its skid plate which will be bolted on before shipping.  The additional center hoop will see two HIDs hang down from it while underneath them, mounted to the main tube will sit an LED bar.  I will need to spray the tube with an anti-rust coating and then a black topcoat of some type for additional protection.  The bare steel might work in the desert but not here in the humid, wet, salty, Northeast.

If anyone has a recommendation for the best (read cheapest) way to ship this bumper I would love to hear it as I haven't had anything this large shipped in many a year and BTF usually works on local projects and doesn't have a great deal of experience in shipping items this large.

Once "home" I'll update here with more pictures of it and its install as well as the lights and wiring duties.

Dan, I do a lot of shipping of large items. For the best truck rates, by far try: http://www.freightquote.com/default.aspx

Or, if your item meets their criteria, and you can do bus terminal to bus terminal Greyhound is very reasonable: http://www.shipgreyhound.com/
