Hmm, 360 has had a steady supply, I'm not sure if they are getting them from horizon or GP, or direct. I got a uncut block recently to make a bumper for my pan car.

Actually, it is very easy and it is not as hard as you thought...

Overlay your stock bumper over the Parma general foams...use exacto knife and score/cut the outline of your stock bumper...then use a new blade of a "breakable" cutting blade, full extend to 3/4 length and if the blade is sharp enough, it will cut like a butter.

Then you can use dremal or rough sand paper to smooth all the edge.

Use drill to drill those bumper post....use smaller size diameter drill bit then the post's daimeter. You want the foams to fill it the gap itself.

This bumper was cutted from a P-dub generic piece....took like 1/2 hour.
