Whats the best way to install the bumper and grille? Can you install the bumper and grille as one piece or do have to install the bumper/assembly first and then the grille. Have all together but now started to question if I would be able to reach the brackets on each side of the grill that mount to the fender with it installed

So how did you do it??  I am in the process of repairing/restoring the Grill on our 70 and hope by next month we'll have it back on the car!   cheers 2thumbs

Did you guys have any broken fins or plastic to fix??  any suggestions?

Cheers

Mine had a few broken pieces and I used fiber glass and plastifix to repair mine. I installed the bumper/assembly first At the same time positioning the fender brackets in place as I was putting the bumper Assembly  then bolting the bumper and bracket to the fender. You will not be able to reach them once installed. Then the grille with the headlight doors attached. You will need to remove the turn signals to access a bolt or two for the grille. Just take your time and be extra carfull with the grille treat it like your baby the last thing you want for it to crack on you while your installing it. Hope it makes sense
