Good evening! How do you like your Bumper cooked? Well done?
This exhaust system was improperly installed. The tail pipe ended up just shy of the body. A real bumper might have been up to the job, but a Bumperette? No way.
Burnt. Toasted. Blued. Heat and emissions have burned the chrome. We’ve scrapped a lot of dented rear overriders over the years. This is the first one we’ve had to discard because it was overcooked.
We have a slick muffler you can trim to fit, so you can make sure you don’t have this problem (Click here to purchase). For this particular car, we’ll use a chrome extension tail pipe extension as a band-aide to send the heat and smoke a bit further back, to spare the new bumper from another hot foot!
