F/G front bumpers without foglights??

I want a front fiberglass 914 bumper that doesn't have the big square cut-outs for foglights and grills. I've seen them on race cars before and would like to think that these were not DIY pieces because I know that you could probably "glass" in those areas, I just don't want to if I don't have to. Does anyone know a source or have an idea? TIA!

There are none that we know of- we filled in our front bumpers after they came out of the mold. just not that popular an item that warrants investment in a separate mold.

OK - does someone sell sheet fiberglass in the appropriate thickness? You wouldn't have a pic of the backside of that patched area would you?

The easiest way to do it is to tape a piece of styrene or ABS to the front and lay up the glass on the back. Then rough up the front, a little plastic filler for contour, block and prime. Thats it you are done. It will probalbly take less time than a few phone calls to look for one. If you have never used fiberglass before (you do not buy pre made glass sheets) just go to the library or bookstore and there are plenty of books on bodywork. Its not too hard. I had to cut up, fit and recontour the bumpers on my car.
