No worries... there is NO strip or filler that goes under the nose there... just the two end pieces.

and I got the bumpers on...love how the front extensions are spring loaded, to attach to the bumper, but got it done by myself...my dads got an awesome set of tools..but attached the complete bumper with help...and a jack!

Sorry that I had to try and paint the bumpers, I had the jack-slots filled, plate holes,and 2 holes on top of front bumper filled also (fog lights?...fail)....if and when I'd have $, get a pair OEM-polished bumpers would finish the dream

Very nice looking car. I think they still sell bumpers made out of plastic/fiberglass? that you could also paint body color.

thanks, I thought about making them yellow, that could be done during the winter, but I really want the OEM look of 76 and that Bumblebee has them silver also makes me like the silver/polished idea more...I even would try having someone "wrap" them chrome, no one here can..

Looks really clean with all the bumper slots filled in! Are those fiberglass bumpers you're using now?

Also, I think I just stumbled upon a pair of NOS bumpers for my car!! I'll have to check them out soon and see for myself

ya, had the bumpers blasted (ALOT) my buddy at his body shop filled all holes, primered it then sprayed a light silver, then clearcoated...I like the fact there are no holes, but do like the polished aluminum look ...more
