I assume (I know a bad thing)..but I think you are refering to the
front bumper ..Go with a Urathane, or Fiberglass replacement..?
Done it both ways... both front and back bumpers....usinf Urathane
(like stock) and using fiberglass....
Honestly none fit correctly .. But the fiberglass was much easier to
play with to get a very acceptable fit....
I prefer the Fiberglass...by far.... BUT Its been 7-8 years since the
last car was done... (also a 76) over 10 since I did the first one (a
79).. Have no clue as to what is on the market today...
64 72 & 98 Convertibles
76 & 79 Coupes
Opinions seem to vary widely on this one. How much do you think it affects
the resale value of a car to do this? I'm open to all comments. I can take
it. 8) I personally don't usually mod a car as a rule or do anything that
cannot be reversed. I've have never cared what other do with there's though.
I've seen a couple done correctly and it does look nice.
Personally I do not think it effects the resale value at all....if
everything is equal...
Over time Urathane can fade, warp,crack, and tear.
Fiberglass (or whatever they really are made of now) may crack
or show spider webbing... still may get some fading BUT the change in
color will be the same as the other paint in the gerenal area...
Backing into another car or a pole in a parking lot may do a number of
fiberglass (crack...shatter etc) and not do a thing to a flexable
Like I said...I prefer fiberglass...mostly because of the lack of
fading over time...and to avoid using special painting procedures
since the fiberglass ones do not flex...as far as looks go...I can't
tell the difference without touching them...
