Default Has anyone modded the front and rear

Bumpers...kind of like...is it strosek...? Shortened, folded under, whatever you might call it, overhang reduction...? I know singer does it, though it looks like f model bumpers they look really nice, I have always thought the one shortcoming of the 964 is that...really stands out at certain angles....anyway, I imagine a mod like this would be frowned upon these days what with the pricing being what it is and this would render it unstock and, unless you are never going to sell, well....

Great post and photoshop skills.

I don't like the chunky look bumpers on my car. Been thinking which way to change them as I didn't want to go the backdate or RS route. I had not thought of doing what you have done, and it looks great! I'll post up some picks when I get to doing mine.

LOL? well i havenīt just to show how it might look, but i guess you might need to get rid of the bumperbar underneath the plasticfantastic for clearence, and after that trial and error like most times.

Man that looks good. Ditch the crash bars and then section the bumper until you get it as tight to the body as you'd like. Might be a decent amount of labor, but the effect is pretty cool.

Well that small amount of change makes a BIG diference IMHO, i would guess an 1-1 1/2 inch tucked in.

Yeah, looks good. There's probably enough room behind the front to pull it back a little. Don't know about the rear.

Rear has plenty, all you do is ditch the bulge for the plate
