    looking for 71/72 front and rear fiberglass bumper. I have both for 70. and could make the rear work, but not the front with changing alot of trim parts.

    I know a place here in ohio used to make the front, I know vfn makes the front so primary focus on the rear since I know the front can be had.

    guess I dont know why they would do the rear and not the front

    The guy here in ohio passed away about 4 years ago. His son doesn't do this type of work so the molds for all makes just sit. I've been trying to get the Buick ones from him for 3 years, no success. They go from 65 to 73 and include hoods, doors, and bumpers. He made Doug H. 65 pieces.

    I will keep that in mind brian, but hopefully if I get this one where it should be this spring I can start working on the other I have had for almost 10 years sitting waiting. it's more of gutted down light weight more chaged, bigger tire car. but for now it just sits and waits.


    but it will be several years and alot of money to get it done right........so if I can stop having to drop 3k+ a year to get the green car right I might actually get it done b4 my 4 year is old enough to drive.

    They didn't have any for my '66, but made me a set for like $520, I just had to supply cores for them to make molds.
