the one for 73 is wider and flexable (like rubber or plastic) the one for the 71-72 is a metal one (steel) and narrower but yes there is a panel that fits behind the bumper they call it a stone deflecter   fred should have this panel i would ask him

I have the metal one, I picked it up with a nice set of bumpers and front and rear valance as a package deal. I only needed the bumpers though since my car is a 73. It is metal like previously mentioned. Let me know if Fred doesnt have the one you need...but I doubt he wont. He seems to have everything...l ol

I got the wagon back from paint and glass today, ends out I have 2 of the 71-72 bumper filler pieces and the one for my 73 now. So if you are still looking I have two of them made of metal.

Still trying to find a box/boxes to put this thing in. My 19yo daughter just moved out on her own and I seem to be having a box shortage at the moment because of the fact. I will get a price for you as soon as I get this figured out...might be able to get what I need at work next week. Sorry it is taking longer than planned.

Got a UPS price to ship for $32.00, that comes with $100.00 insurance she said is mandatory (can't be opt'd out of). I figure $20.00 is a fair price for part. So $52.00 shipped to 33907.
