Euro bumpers swapped

I've decided to replace the big bumpers originally came with 74 or later years to euro type look and quite pleased the way they came outand thought that i would share.

Bumpers were purchased from Brandon Powder. Nice guy and nice chrome work.

As we all know nothing is simple. Additional parts were needed, which includes: rear overlayed chrome pieces to cover the top bolts {pictured w/o, pieces were added in Sept.}, and rear rubber overlayed surround. {Pieces were purchased from Steve at Bluntech}. Portion of the rear and front bumper area required some welding in order for the brackets to securely bolt onto. Since the new bumpers are smaller, paint work was neccessary to fill large holes in the rear...

The conversion was pricey. Certainly more than I had anticipated of spending, but in the end, the conversion was worth it.
