These bumpers were made from two pieces of eletrical
solder held together in back with some very thin metal which I think was used in the printing industry. I keep all these materials on hand for custom modeling work. Solder can be obtained in various thicknesses. Initially, I polished it up to a shiny silver color but ultimately decided to bare metal foil them. The overriders were of the same material but shaped a bit to fit against the contour of the double ribbed bumper bars.
