    STAGE III Lost Experimental Block

    ***Update*** Found a set but leaving specs up that Duane was kind enough to share.

    Any condition is fine and also would like another black ribbed rubber strip that is stapled or screwed to the trunk ledge lip behind the bumper if you have a spare.

    Thanks,

    John,
    I figured I'd do something nice for you today. Below are the outlines of the 70 & 71-72 Rear Bumper Spacers. It is on an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper, so if you print them out they should be full size. This way you can see what you have or what you need.
    Happy New Year.

    You can use the 70 piece on a 71-72 rear bumper and get away with it (of course they may fall out later), but if you use a 71-72 piece on a 70 rear bumper, the rubber pushes the bumper off the car more and makes the gap too big.
    Enjoy.
    Duane

    Very cool info Duane. Thanks for this. I have a ton of these and never looked at them to see if they were different from each other. Man I always learn a lot on this board.

    Ponder this, I know there is a 3rd type spacer, because I have 3 types on file.
