I realized I had only put up a few pictures tacked on to another thread after finishing my bumper tuck on the 76. I had a few people email me on how it came out so I figured I'd make a dedicated post for it.

Here is how the front started...

Everything pulled off and readying to modify the hangers to tuck them in and up.

My purpose built, highly technical leveling jig for setting the proper height and level.

My ace mechanic and #1 helper Wingnut pulling the guts from the rear.

All that is left.

I forgot to shoot any pics of them in the back of the truck when they made it back from powdercoat, I was too anxious to get them installed.

Wingnut jumped right into getting the front bolted up into place.

Now I just need to get some 2" body moulding to cover the original bumper mount holes. We had a great auto paint shop here in town that had rolls and rolls that I could have test fit but he has since closed down so I need to order wisely....

All in all I think it changed the entire look of the car and I really like how it turned out. I also had the window trim powdercoated black at the same time and just got it installed this past week, I will get a few pics thrown in of that in the next day or so.
