Lots of resin, matting and sanding. Saw it done once - didn't look right. Thumbs Down

Is it possible? Certainly. Economically feasible? Not so much.

Ha ha Louis your thinkin like Evil Smileebo......whats up wid dat?Confused
I have a decent used front bumper and was holding it up to my front nose on my 1980 project car. It looks do-able you would need some fab'in to give it some strenght. I had two thoughts one to cut it right in pretty tight and the other to space it off the nose just a bit. I'm going to change out the nose on the car anyhow.
Right now the chrome bumper is hung over my work bench as a display piece, so most likley I'll try it anyhow, in the end it may be just a bigger piece hangin over the work bench LOL.
Heh your in vegas! take a long shot!Wink

Lewis, take Ebo's advice while ur in Vegas. I think your luck will be better on the slot machine than trying to put chrome bumpers on a 77. LOL

lol.... you guys are funny... this makes me just wanna buy that '77 and do it later on. Im sure using a fiber glassed based material to remat called DURAGLASS and a lot of resin its do-able. There is a place in Bell flower, CA called J & D corvette, they make all vette bumpers out of bier glass. Thats how I got the '81 taill molded into my '77 and the '77 fully fiberglass on the front molded in with 0 seams and no structural support behind them.. (less wait for racing ;)  ) I love projects!

You can even get pieces parts from older cars, graft that to the car, and install the bumpers, front and rear.
 
You can get an older C3 and put the soft bumpers on that as well.
 
How much time, cash, sandpaper and fiberglass have you got?
 
Gonna need a really really good dust mask!
