78 rear metal bumper
« on: May 14, 2011, 04:15:16 AM »
I've seen a few Firebird 77 reiforcements for the rear bumper, but all of them don't looks like the same than my. They looks like this one:


but my:





it's the right for a 78 Y82, or it's not the right one? What do you think?

the 79-81:

they are a way thinner than my.

My own has the form of a 77/78, but with another brackets to the body tail panel, and doesn't have this lines on it.

What do you think? It can be a metal bumper of a 78 Firebird or it's defenitly not?

Doesn't look like either one to me...appears to have been modified in my opinion, at least the brackets are different
