Re: Front bumper brackets 1958 help

These are tricky little guys.I can't see to good in your picture,They bolt inside the frame rails,but they only go on 1 way.I had to turn mine over,and then decided to do away with the front bumper and build a roll pan for the front clip

Re: Front bumper brackets 1958 help

hold up the bumper to see if it is correct, installed upside there is a gap between the filler and the bumper

this is the 58-59 grill/bumper pic from lmc catalog



this is the proper way imo
reverse of the 55-57
