May I see a pic of the front with the hood closed? I've been thinking of getting one of those Hilborn scoops for my car, but I've only seen one other, besides yours, with one.

Thanks,
AJ

BTW, great looking ride. My first Camaro was a '74 and I miss it a lot.

i was going to get that intake for my 76 as well, but ended up getting a good deal on the butterfly one so I got that. What kind of edging did you use around the hole?

For the brackets you basically can gut the inside of the old bumper and remove all the big "springs", until you just have the two cylinder pieces. THen when you have them mounted at the right depth you can either weld them or bolt them.

US Body Source out of Florida has them but you would have to fabricate new bracketry. You're better off doing this anyways to lighten up the car and pull in the bumpers closer to the body.

Thumbs down bumpers

your car is awesome I had a 76 once.Anyway,think about those fiber bumpers if you hit someone or they hit you the end result is the same,have fun getting the firewall out of your lap.I took off the stock bumpers before and found this out.There is nothing to stop the powerplant from going in your jewels.Everyone says 'it wont happen to me' I sure did too.

IMO from carrying that crap around it's the leaf spring deals behind the bumpers that are most of the weight. A lot of guys seem to remove the leafs and either bolt or weld that do nothing tube to hold up the aluminum bumpers. Given your car looks real nice as is that may be a good alternative. I think those tubes will act as support for glass bumpers too.
