I was reading through the forums yesterday and saw a post where wayoflife suggested that someone cut their front bumper down to make it a stubby. My knowledge on bodywork is limited. Would anyone happen to have enough experience that they could suggest the right kind of tools to get this job done? I know it won't look perfect but I'd hate to chop it and it look really rough and obvious..
