I had a guy modify a pair of '69 Camaro rear bumpers for the front and rear of mine. Check out my build thread for pictures.

The bumpers I used are 2nd gen Chevy. I cut 1 1/2 inches out of each end. If I did it again I would do 2 inches. Cut them right where it goes straight. It makes it easier to butt together With some small flat pieces to hold it straight. I also dropped it 1 inch and moved it in 3/4 of an inch (front) I think it looks great tucked in. Good luck have fun.

Excellent work buddy. I love the amount of pictures and the mods to your restoration you are doing. Keep up the good work!
