75-79 Rear Bumper Filler Replacements?

Anyone tried these repro fillers from Replica Plastics? Says they are flexible fiberglass.

yes, there are a few of us on here that have used them. i have the ones for the buick and they fit like crap, but i hear the chevy ones also fit terribly. unfortunatly they are usually the only option as used ones are almost always in bad shape and nos ones are practically non existant. if you go with the replica plactic fillers be prepared to put in some hours getting them to fit correctly.

The front and side rears on the 4th gens fit better than the center filler for the rear. can not say anything on the fit for the 74.

Thanks for the feedback! A piece of my rear RH corner piece is broke off and the center is gouged up. Not many junk yards around here with these cars still in them . . .

Thx!

I didn't see anything on craiglist, but checked their website, they have a handful of 4th Gens. the white 77 looks good but they don't want to part that one out . . . yet.

The white 77 has a manual trans and the car looks complete. One of you guys looking for pedals and linkage should jump on this.
Remember the support brace is not needed, just the pedals and the bolt they hang from.

Send them your requests for parts, they are still reluctant to part out the 4-door white one.

Mine came in last week, 3 pce for the front of my Nova.
It's going to take some fancy work to try and get a proper fit.
The center piece is not on the proper angle so, modifications will have to be done.

Considering that this is one of the only alternatives, Not much choice

OR, I guess someone could tuck the bumper all the way to the grill, and use the side pieces to try and make it look good.
(the side pieces sell for $49 each.

AJ,

Thanks, I called the company you found. E&K Bumper Fillers. Talked to Ken. He said the ones they offer are the fiberglass ones, they get them from same source above. I asked him why don't they offer any flexible ones for 4th Gens? He said because they don't have a good set to make a mold from. Said if we could get a good fitting original to him, they would give it a try.

Anybody got a NOS set? Hehe . . . Or a really good set that is known to fit good? Even a fiberglass one that's been "tweaked" to fit? They are in Stewart, FL. Said the guy who gives them a good set gets the 1st reproduction set for free . . .

I have several good sets, all used but good. I'll contact them and see if mine will work for them. The fiberglass parts will fit but need a lot of work to do so.
