I'll be adding internal braces on the sides, and the corners. As for the rear, I'm considering some gussets, but the top plate sits right on the mount, and the rear face will be welded all the way around the mount. There's also a bottom side to all of this, so in the end, it'll basically be a large 'C' channel



You might consider making some holes in the bottom to make it easier to wash dirt out that will get packed in the scoop when it drags.

That's a good idea. There's a couple holes in the bottom plates, but some dimple die'd holes might make it not only stronger, but easier to clear out...

I'm sure that one could if it were the right design.. I'm planning on building a receiver hitch behind the license plate, and having the license plate flip up. Reinforcement will just be a crossmember tying the receiver into the frame. Not like i really tow anything.

Getting a tow hitch mount certified can cost upwards of $10k, and NWTI has about a dozen rear bumper designs...

Been busy with orders but managed to make some progress:

Got the sides and bottom tacked on:







I've got it off now to work on the side supports, and I'm trying to figure out if i want to reinforce a support for the swing out

Welp, made some more progress on the NWTI bumper.






Blended most of the edges tonight for a couple hours...  :flamed:

Got a couple low edges to fill, then hopefully a final fit, weld on the side supports, and then paint.

Any recommendations on paint prep and final paint to use on bare steel?
I was just thinking a few coats of self etching primer, then about 5 coats of black... Any recommendations of brand?

Got an air compressor? If so why not get some automotive paint and spray it with a gun?

Not a bad idea.. problem is, I'd have to buy and set up an inline drier and filter... Really expensive route to go

Are you planning on painting black, if so rustoleum semi gloss black. Easy touch ups

I think the clear coat, will eventually get oxidized from uv light.

Yeah, I've seen a 70 Chevy shortbed truck with welded doors, smoothed out completely at the good guys car show. 2 years later it was yellowing a bit. I was talking to the guy, he told me he was getting ready to sand it off and paint it

If you go with rustoleum, use the brush/roll-on, it seems to hold up better than the spray can.

I'm sure you know, prep is everything. I use denatured alcohol, then a tack rag

What about a primer? Self etching spray on?
