Cool! I'm always paranoid of parking next to anyone - I've gotten some pretty nasty door dings over the years. I have wondered about putting on the door bump strips from the IROC cars. Never researched it though.

Got any pictures of the whole side of your car with the new strip?

Pardon the fact that you caught "us" at the worst possible time,...right in the middle of bodywork/paint, but here are a couple of pics. Please pardon the wet-sanded black, and picture problems it causes,...

Picture conditions are poor at the moment.
I REALLY like this stuff! It is pliable, and will last forever. I'll be watching to see if black becomes available,...but this car will look very nice in the meantime!
Don't know if I'll ever see this stuff again,...I've watched a number of nice items for these Camaros disappear over the years! Snag 'em while ya can! $58 to my door,...

I think I saw that Classic Industries sells a complete set of chrome/rubber for $180. I hope this helps,...
I just don't need a whole new set. I already have 1976 chrome that works for this car,...it's no beauty queen.
It just gets the job done,...hee, hee.

[quote=asphaltburner]You don't have to make that commute every day, do you TFF?

Nope, just happens to be twice this week though...and at least twice a week when I'm teaching on campus.

I'll sure like 'em!
Hope y'all have a good day.

I, like PF, always worry about door dings so I usually park in 'safe' zones. These look good on your car A-B, and will be good protection. I don't think my Z came out of the factory with these on the car, but maybe was an option in 1978:

B84-Moldings, body side
B93- Moldings, door edge

Naw, TFF. I understand it was a dealer installed option.
And I doubt that ANY horsepower enthusiast would have opted for "DOOR BUMPERS"! It would just be an option that us dumpy Camaros would have,...for everyday protection! This car was not built to be a sports car,...
A number of cars had this option back then,...of all makes/types, so it was common. Cars were getting big, parking spots were becoming smaller. Doors banged doors,...good intervention.
And BTW, it's FORTY,....1976! This year. It's a good car.

Keep in mind that all the chrome pieces are 1976 and came with the car when it was purchased. But changing out the rubber bumper strips is ridiculously easy! They just pull out, and the new rubber is set in the chrome's groove by hand. This is "slate metallic, high profile".

And then it was 98.2 F and 100 F!
It finally cooled to a high of 89 for today.
Finished the wet-sanding today in the overcast!
