Re: Best Front Bumper

I got mine at Pick N Pull.
Come to think of it, I bought most of my body/interior parts there.

Re: Best Front Bumper

If you can still get a GM bumper, that's the only one I'd even consider new. Fitment on all aftermarket body parts is TERRIBLE. Best bet for the money is a used original.

Re: Best Front Bumper

i got an aftermarket one brand new, and aftermarket one used (thought it was a GM bumper) and they both got wavy from the sun. got a used GM bumper and never had the problems. try to go original if you can, otherwise it wont wind up right.

You need to find a better one if you don't like the one you got.
What are you looking for,Chevy or Firebird?

Re: Best Front Bumper


Has anyone tried the all fiberglass piece? I think it would be easy to get it laser straight, get rid of the wavy crap that happens and tighten up body lines? Anyone?

Re: Best Front Bumper

I had the same question about the 1 piece fiberglass as well. How does it fit/look?

Re: Best Front Bumper

Going by the fiberglass replacement aero wing I got for my 89 GTA it was not an exact fit. No holes or brackets or anything! All they gave me was some cheap sheet metal screws that were not even stainless. Rusted right out and I had to get dry wall anchors and some stainless steel screws to stick it into the fiberglass to hold it tight to the glass. Go original if you can. There is so many 3rd gens around it can't be too hard to find a decent front bumper cover.
