1976 Trans Am fenders
« on: May 21, 2012, 07:47:11 PM »
I am starting to search and gather parts for my '76 that I just picked up, I was wondering it the fenders are different for the '76? Also does anyone know how the lower front bumper sides mounts to the fenders?

Fenders are the same 70-81 aside from an additional bracket on early 70-73 years, and no the bumper just rests against the fenders, real pain to fit

There is also an additional bracket  (I assume Eroc022 is commenting on) that holds the front bumper on a 76. I have been told that they are year specific.  Mine has them...

I guess I should clarify...

If you ment the specific bracket for a 70-73 fender should have included a 76 I agree.

I cannot comment on any years other than a 76 and a 79. ( I have both)

The bracket I am talking about is on the front of the fender.  I was told by others that know a heck of a lot more than me that this bracket is year specific.
