Custom rear bumper and diffuser

Insane - Chevrolet Camaro (1984)

The rear bumper and diffuser began with a concept drawing from my imagination which is shortened 6” flush with the taillights. The original steel bumper support was sectioned and formed to follow the curvature of the car and foam was attached and shaped to make a male buck which was laid up with fiberglass and reinforced to create a mold. The final piece was hand laid fiberglass in the mold. The part was removed from the mold, flanges attached, body worked, and painted to complete the bumper. The diffuser was cut and formed from a single sheet of 1/8” aluminum and TIG welded. The final product it is surprisingly close to the concept drawing.
