Anybody have any opinions on reproduction bumpers vs. straightened and rechromed originals?
Funny you should say this. Just 2 weeks ago I was delivering to a prominent member who has 2 third gens. One a true Yenko and the other a "plain" 2 door.Seattle_Mike said:This has been discussed many times on this board. The repop bumpers are made in China and are a thinner material, many don't fit correctly, and the chrome is not high quality. A local muscle car parts supplier here in Seattle finally quit selling them because the quality was so poor that many people returned them. If you want the best quality, have OEM bumpers stripped, straightened, and rechromed. If it's a daily driver and you aren't too picky then repops will probably do you fine.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...what I think is poor quality might look great to someone else...just like a paint job.
