    Guys, tore into my clunker yesterday with plans to get the rear bumper ready to rechome. But I think with the rust damage it is too far gone to replace. The tab inside that holds the bumper to frame rubber seal is completely gone as well as the bottom ears that support the main bumper brackets. So, are there any decent repops available for a daily driver or do i have to obtain a better candidate for rechrome. If so, what donors can I use from, 71 thru 74s or just 73 and 74s..thanks...

    Ok can use 71-4 Charger bumper. Might check and see if AMD makes it otherwise a good core/driver shouldn't be hard to find.

    AMD does indeed make one for my model at about $425. All the platers I checked with now start at $500 for a replate but I due prefer original. My recent move to a small city and all the shutdowns make finding one now really tasking. thanks.....
