Default Bumper On A Truck

Just for fun I set the rear bumper of the 52 Merc sedan on the back of the 49 Merc truck. And this is how it looks. Not sure if I'd ever make it a permanent thing.

Not really.... It needs to be like the front bumper, or better yet, fabbed from channel and diamond plate. And don't forget the trailer hitch!

Nice work! It has possibilities. I had the angle all wrong as it is tilted too far forward on the truck frame.
