after much research on both the supply of, and the legalities of fitting aftermarket armor to cars in Spain (difficult and expensive to get them "homologated" and therefore pass the road inspection) I've come begrudgingly to the conclusion that the best thing to do is stick to the OEM look as much as possible, but build custom steelwork underneath it, and then slot it back on as a "cover" to the real armor underneath. Ive searched the forum (and pretty much the internet) and not seen anybody do this before, has anybody done this or remember seeing it done before? Im thinking of fitting a winch on the standard plate on the chassis and then working off that to build a strong tubular design that the OEM bumper slides back on over the top. that way I can cut it around the winch etc without worrying about structural integrity as its really just a cover. I'll most likely lose the OEM endcaps, and the tubing will run out the end of the bumper and do little wrap rounds on the corners. any advice, experience, knowledge or comments and especially pics, gratefully received. gracias amigos.
