Bumper Stripe Project - Jeep Grand Wagoneer 81-91
These bumper stripes or bumper nerfs are no longer available for several years. I started a project to rebuild set front and rear for Chrysler Jeep Grand Wagoneer. The goal will be to produce a new complete OEM set between 150–180$.
Code name: #BumperStripes
Project started at: 05. 2016
#15 - Photo shooting for e-commerce
Making product pictures is not easy, reflections, shadows, brightness. As I am not really equipped, I work with what I have.
But this stage is great, the fruit of my labor before my eyes, months of work, disillusions to finally have the final parts. So to photograph them, even if it is complicated, remains a much less worry.
Yeeeeees, I am happy, first product done!
I just received the first set of products from the mold making, so this is no longer a prototype, but the real product. It took a few tests and to set the machine for a result like that.
Now nothing is opposed to the production launch of the first 200 sets.
The creation of the mold to began almost a month ago, if interesting how it is composed.Read More

After several tests on my own bumper, some little modification is needed. But what is the limit ? Making parts better than the original or just copying the original? In this case, customer feedback is welcome.Read More
Test of a PP prototype is required to check the flexibility of the product. This is not possible with the ABS because that is hard plastic and doesn’t have a good resist at deformation.Read More
Nothing is worth the tests on the real parts, but it also shows immediately the errors so we will correct, again.Read More
The big challenge on reproducing parts, when you need to compare original parts and prototypes, is how to present the modification and what technique you need to use.
That is my strategy, but certainly not the better one.
Wow ! Received yesterday, can’t wait to check on the bumper. Jeep Grand Wagoneer are mostly present as opposed to the older FSJ.Read More
