Most of the parts had excessive wear but the bumper with its rust had to be cut off with the torch
Check out the Unit Crane in the background.
We tried to save the bumper but the bumper is almost like tissue paper. The box frame will need some extensions. Thoughts on this fabrication will be to do a custom tube bar. Other thoughts are to do a complete remanufacturer of the bumper.
