    i took my 76 front bumper off to get polished and re anodised and didn't have to remove the valance.

    Thank you. I wasn't sure I could get it off with out possibly damaging the lower valance, so I just removed it & it was still a pain in the @ss to get the bumper assembly removed. It almost seems like they installed the bumper assemblies and then built the rest of the car around them. lol.. Thanks again.
