Default Vaterra Ascender Narrow Front Bumper

Hi Guys, So I Basically Could Never Leave Anything Alone So I Got Rid Of My K-5 Blazer Body & Rebuilt My Vaterra Ascender Using The Shortest Wheelbase. I Then Threw On A Clod Body I Had Laying Around. So Far So Good, Just That The Original Ascender Front Bumper Looks A Lil Too Wide For The Clod Body.

Does Anyone Know Of A Narrow Front Bumper That Would Fit The Vaterra Ascender? I Know I Can Cut & Customize The Original Bumper But I Would Like To Upgrade To A Steel Front Bumper. Any Help Would Be Much Appreciated, Thanks.

As You Can See On This Pic The Original Bumper Sticks Out About Half Inch On Each Side.....

Cut the ends off the bumper and use ShoeGoo or E6000 black to glue end caps back on the bumper.
