Front Bumper Issues. (Stinkin Deer)
« on: September 22, 2012, 10:01:26 PM »
Here goes.. I have a '75 Runabout with a bent as hell front clip [damned deer] >:(
After totaling up the prices for a new fender & hood I've decided that I want to use a '71-'73 style front end..can I simply repair the damage done and mount up a slimmer bumper, or does that require fender and/or mounting equipment changes?

Thanks guys.

Bought my Pinto in '12, last tagged in '97. Had it on the road (thanks to a $20) spring '14. Tima to tear it apart, fix it correctly this time....and play with the drive train. Got a totally free & complete drive train-engine, 5 speed, drive shaft, and computer!

member Joe Ecobar has done this on his '74.  he laid it all out in a series of posts that is very easy to follow.  run a search and check it out.
the only substitute for cubic inches is BOOST!!!
