Blacked out spokes would look good.

 Good idea Brian ! 2thumbs

I'm sure I've got some old cracked lenses around here somewhere that I can salvage a Fratzog off of.  scratchchin

I put the new back up lights in today.

I hated the wire just running through a hole in the valance,

So I installed these rubber grommets from the local Rural King.

I needed to temporarily install my bumper so that I could determine the exact placement of my bumper guards.  scratchchin

Realizing that attempting to do this by myself would result in scratched paint, flying wrenches and more than a few new curse words being brought into existence, I decided to rig something up.   hack

My El Cheapo Harbor Freight transmission jack, several yards of blue tape, some scrap lumber and a few nuts and bolts did the trick.  coolgleamA

I was thinking that, I used the AMD bumper on my Daytona and was pleased with it, it will pass for an OEM bumper, it's not show chrome, but more in line with OEM production chrome, how did you find the bumperette fit? I know Panhead/ Curt had a minor issue with the fit, I didn't have any issues with mine though

My bumper is going on 14 years old and no issues with the chrome and no rust, and I do drive my car rain or shine...

Thanks
Mike

Mike,

The bumper guards fit the bumper just fine.

I'm having some issues with the lower mounting brackets on the bumper guards hitting my shiny, B5 blue valance.

Could be the guard's bracket ?

Bumper too high on the body ?

Could be the taiwanese valance I got from Harden's muscle car world back in the '90's ?

Could be I'm an idiot  scratchchin brickwall shruggy ?

If I can force myself to go out to the garage today, I'll try to figure it out.  scope

Thanks   cheers

I tried balancing the bumper on my knees while sitting on a chair and slowly rolling forward,  Then I realized I would have to hold that pose while reaching in the trunk and getting the washers on the bolts and getting my nuts started. eek

Way too much going on at once, and paint repairs/touch ups are 1800 miles away in Arizona  eek brickwall slap

So, the bumper guards won't fit.  brickwall

The back up lights had to be reshaped to fit the valance, too.   eyes

This tells me that the valance I got from Harden's back in the 90's is probably shaped wrong.  brickwall

The only way I can see to make the bumper guards fit without destroying the paint on the rear valance, is to cut the lower brackets off, reshape/ reposition them and reweld them, which means they will need to be rechromed.   flame

So, for now anyway...

I've chosen the bumper guard delete option:
