! Shiny ! New Chrome Bumpers

    Recommended Posts

    Here they are!  Y'all better get these.  Cyber Monday $306 each plus shipping which isn't bad at all, $63 for both from Connecticut to Alabama.

     

    I got them so close I don't think a playing card could slip between the bumper and body.  Both sides pulled in perfect too.

     

    Rear is next but I'm going to paint the tow hooks and need to get some stainless carriage bolts to put the 3 pieces together.  Not going to use the old rusted ones.

     

    Thank You Dave Patten @ futofab.com.

    I'm not a good picture taker, so they said.  Here's some a little farther back.  I never opened the doors today.  :ph34r:

     

    They had some packing smears but I quickly buffed 'em out with a microfiber towel and they look back at me, like a mirror.  Very happy with my new bumpers.

    What I thought were tow hooks are actually tie down hooks that weren't removed at the dealership.  I was trying to find longer bolts for them before putting them back on with the rear brackets  :wacko:.  Luckily for the past 42 years they weren't used!

     

    Nicely painted Safety Yellow too.

    These naked bumpers are the best complement to an early Z, just sexy.

    Great compliment on the bumpers!  they really are sleek looking, mirror shine too.

     

    My buddy at Nissan parts locally is going to get me some Hardbody pickup chrome bumper carriage bolts with the smooth head and square shoulder for joining the the rear bumper's end pieces to the main section.  I'll post it here.  Maybe I can find it sooner at carpartsmanual.com

    I just ordered a set also, with 15% off today.

    You will be happy, guaranteed.  I'm finding the bolts for the rear bumper now, Nissan Hardbody pickup has the same chrome 3 piece bumpers.  Jegs has a bumper bolt kit for $6.99 but it's a 5/16".  I'll post up what I end up getting today.

    Very, very, nice!

    If mine were not in good shape, I would be all over those, especially with today's sale.

    Probably cheaper than getting the originals re-chromed.

    Thanks for the heads up on the sale! I ordered just the front chrome.  Going to have to figure out how to put it on my 77 next. Should be fun.

    Hey Greg.  I'm about to do the same as you but I'll be putting my old rusty front bumper on my '77.  I found a 1/4" thick shelving bracket at Lowes that's the right width and long enough to make 2 brackets.  There's a lot of info out there.  This guy makes them but it's more than I want to spend before trying something DIY, http://www.zccjdm.com/catalog.php/azcarbum/dt93862/pd1790406/280Z_TO_240Z_FF__RR__BUMPER_CONVERSION_BRACKETS_

    They used to have pictures but not now, I guess people were copying his brackets themselves.  They pop up on e-bay occasionally.  Maybe we can figure something out.  :)

    Where are these made?

    Taiwan is what I read somewhere.  They come in a fancy box that says"'70 to '73 240Z Bumper" packaged and wrapped up nicely.  I tried to find a scratch, none whatsoever.  They polish up like the mirrors in jail.  :rolleyes:

    Those do look great as everyone else has said.  For the price, I don't think they can be beat!  I just wish FF or someone else would make these with a matching set of bumper guards.  To me, the guards just belong as they add some dimension to the front styling of the car.
