    I bought the bumpers (front & rear) from Tamraz off ebay a little over 2 years ago. I'll try to figure out how to post a good photo of the bumper profile ASAP. My car is still in winter storage...not at my home. My car is a '73, and the rear bumper profile was just like the one I removed. The inner rubber inserts that fit on each end (I think they are there to protect the quarter when using the bumper jack) fit fine.

    My car is not a trailer queen by any stretch, but I was happy.

    you can see here where the leading edge is flat on the 73 bumper . the earlier ones were more rounded . i don't have an example of this though . there was a whole big long thread about this but my search is acting up ..[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've found the bumpers with the slots all the way down it but never the rubber for it. Good luck.

    I've found the rubber fillers but they all say for 70-73 and from what I've read a 73 is different from 70-72 (longer) for the new 5 mph impact rules in 73. My old bumper has them still on it, but will they fit the new 70-73 bumper, who knows. The Fbody $120 bumper says it is a golden star BU01-70R which sales for around $179-$200 everywhere else. I might have to give it a try.

    When I got my bumper from the bumper boyz rechromers the first bumper they pulled out was a rubber strip bumper. Give them a call they have a lot of bumpers. The chrome on mine is nice, I can't complain. They go to shows all over the US. They're out of L A Cali. Worth a call. Good luck

    Danny @ Golden Star said the bumper is for the 70-72 but will fit the 73. Ordered one
