I got about 80% done with the front bumper, took longer than I expected plus it was cold out so it took some time to get the shop warm. I still need to finish welding the front bumper bolts and filling the jack slots. For those who might be wondering, the bumper I used was/is a 73-74 I believe as were/are the brackets. I had to do a fair amount of modifying to get it where I wanted it and fitting the way I want it to. The 73-74 bumper has a bolt on the top, I do not believe the 70-72 bumpers do not have this hole. The way the bracket is for this top bolt, I had to remove that mounting position, I also had to modify the outside brackets to allow them to slide back. I slotted all of the mounting holes 2"; I will not use all of that but it gives me the adjustability I want. Now, for those you safety minded people who are thinking of commenting how these slots will allow the bumper to slide back into the grille and fenders, you are right to a degree, but what I may do once I am sure of the final location is weld in some stops, although to be honest I am not real concerned about it, these bumpers were never meant to take a whole lot of abuse and I try and make it a habit not to hit things with my Ebodies.
