85-90 Firebird black bumper pads ?

Hello. I have a 90 Formula I'd like to paint soon. The car needs one front and 1 rear bumper pads if I'm describing them right. They are the black plastic inserts in the bumper. Mine are scratched. I'd like to know what these are called so I can search for them. Most used bumpers still have them on butif I buy them separate I want to know what most people call them. I'm guessing bumper pads.... Thanks, Chris

You can find some as new old stock. The name is bumper insert.
moderndaymuscle.com

Hawks may have them if you call them.

Junkyard

Or have them media blasted and painted.

If at all possible remove them when painting car so no over spray gets on them.

I've seen them changed out with different things (florescent light fixture plastic, custom fiberglass replacements) I've collected the front two for my car as NOS over the years... I still would like to find the back two as NOS. Hopefully someone will start reproducing these sooner or later.
