My new rear bumpers are now installed and they fit like a glove. Extremely happy camper. :Hurray:

I will post photos after I remove the blue painters tape I covered the bumpers with to prevent any scratches while I was fitting them up. :thumbs:

Now when I drive the car, I won't get busted for not having rear bumpers and yes, Kenneth City Police have been known to do that. :mad:

Next is prepping the whole car for it's final coat of high build primer, sanding that and spraying the black primer-sealer. Then I drive it for 3 months in the Florida sun to make any shrinkage happen that has not happened already.

If I don't find any, is get it ready for paint this fall. :cheers:
