Back to the Exterior Trim:


  • Since my bumper guards were back from the platter.  I installed the rear bumper, bumper guards, and skirting.   These days I find myself installing items that were disassembled when I first bought the car.  The rear came out better then I expected and the bumper skirting fit like a glove. 

  • I also remounted the front bumper with the proper football shaped bolts and installed the front bumper guards.  In both cases I made a spacer from chromed bathroom pipe to go between the bumper guard and the bumper.  Since I choose not to install the piping the spacer keeps the guards from bending in when you tighten the bolts.
