    2 COATS OF THIS ,LET IT DRY 24 HOURS ,then you can use regular poly resin to make the mold and or parts

    but that bumper was made of styrene ? the styrene iam using is the one that always is white also know in some countries (unicel, hielo seco,telgopor)
    i really dont know the name of the foam iam using but is the one like is using for protective shipping
    i know there are many kinds of foam and iam not sure what kind is this but is very weak , very easy to get melt

    as long as it,s epoxy forget about a brand name get the cheapest you can find , its only to protect the foam until you get a mold and if color is not a problem the brownish will work
