All my purchases for the foreseeable future will be mopar related lol
Just bought this original black lower dash pad and glove box lid in very nice condition the other day for a great price. Converting the originally red/burgundy interior to white and black on this complete resto and prefer original color pieces over painting them.

That's a 73 only standard front end bumper. Look at some pics for a 70-72 standard bumper and you'll see the guards are smaller, under the bumper, and don't have the rubber on them. Looks like a nice one. It will fit your 71 but isn't correct if you care. If you change guards, you'll have the bolt holes on top of the bumper.
Thank you for that info update and keen knowledge of attention to detail. No I did not know that '73 bumper difference. A '73 bumper is ok as my car has so many non '71 upgrades on it. Guess I can always change later to a '71 if needed.

More I looked at the difference I do prefer the smaller bumperette. The '73s look like a state trooper bumper guards big enough to apply pit maneuvers, lol. I got the bumper at a great deal, I can always resell it. Thanks again for bumper knowledge difference and heads up!

Bought a non RS 71 Camaro with the split bumper treatment. I'm a huge fan of the RS front end with split bumpers as it was designed for. I hate the fake look of a standard nose Camaro with those RS bumpers. Can't wait to change over to the full front bumper. Found original Camaro bumper and bought the license plate bracket that's needed as well.

I like the full bumper as well, but without the push bars.

The only people to know will be you and other knowledgeable people.
True, but I've always been kind of a cosmetic appearance car owner, those little things stick with me. But I'm ahead of my self as my new Camaro isn't arriving till the first of next week! I'm like a kid counting down arriving x-mas days!
I will be posting lots of pictures of it soon but here's a sneak preview! I sold my gold '71 Z/28 40 years ago when we had our first son. After decades I'm able to buy a real nice Camaro with the help of just selling my '70 el camino I've owned for 21 years. I wanted my gold Camaro back! It will look great in my garage next to my Buick!🤗
My 71 Z/28, the car I never should of sold, picture 1980.
My 70 el camino just sold.
My Buick GN I bought brand new.
My new Camaro on its way!

Yep same, will remove the big bars, I wonder if they sell or have bumper plugs for the upper bumper holes after bracket removal?
Not sure about plugs. You may have to use a short bumper bolt but then you'll have bolt heads across the whole top of the bumper. I used a 70-72 standard bumper on my 73Z to avoid the extra holes. I don't care for the large 73 bumper guards and didn't use the small 70-72 guards (sometimes called fangs) because I didn't want the car looking like a 72 with the larger grille openings for 72-73. However, you'll then up with two guard holes on the lower valance unless you fill them. I have the correct 73 bumper and guards that will go with the car when I can't drive anymore, lol. I like the cleaner look and it's not so busy in that area considering I have Texas YOM plates.

You're really going to like that carburetor !! , Did you have them build it to your engine specs then have them wet flow dyno it ??

I've got their Drag race series 850M3 BK carburetor that was custom built for my Shafiroff racing 427sbc , It was also wet flowed dynoed . This carb now flows 975cfm and has a very responsive throttle
Yea, they did their full build and flow for my engine !
This is the 3rd carb in 10 years they did for me, They all Rock !
I'll bet that 427sbc is a neck snapp'n beast. 🤪
