Has anyone painted their bumpers rather than having them chromed? I haven't seen a 67/68 this way and was wondering if it looks good or not?...
That would look really good. Go for it!
Be careful with powdercoat over chrome. I chipped the back edge of the coating on bumpers on another car and it pealed off like a big piece of vinyl wrapI am having mine powder coated black. I am doing all the bright work in black except the side and vent windows and I may do those too if I can get the metal off the windows without destroying it. I have the one side of the grill back and it turned out pretty nice. Took the rest over to get completed.
Yes. The bottom bolts are still there, but on the top ones I ground half of the button head off, welded it, then ground the other half and welded it. The only way you can get rid of all the heads is to use slip joints on the end bumper brackets, and that's too much worth for what its worth. You're maybe the only person that has ever even noticed!hey sean did you weld studs on the inside of the bumpers so that the stock button bolts don't show? They look great though i'm pretty sure i'm going to paint my bumpers. Not just cause chroming is way too expensive but because it looks awesome IMO.
Yes.and that's too much worth for what its worth. You're maybe the only person that has ever even noticed! .
