This alternative chrome bumper removes the factory rubber strips (just like the European bumper) and vertical guards, but is otherwise just like the factory original. The bumper is nickel and chrome plated to ensure a lasting, durable finish that looks better than the factory chrome! Hardware, shims, and mounting brackets sold separately. These bumpers can be used on 73 240Z's and early production 74 260Z's (with similar "thin" bumpers); however, you must create or modify brackets for the installation. You can have your own brackets made from scratch, or possibly the easiest method is to obtain early 240Z bumper brackets, as these will fit the bumper correctly, and modify them to fit your particular application (significant modification necessary, including machine bending, and often cutting & welding).
