fit better than the NOS one that I had.

Hopefully these turn into decent sellers. I know they are needed item, especially the 1971-74 front which is impossible to find in decent shape.

This is indeed great news, but only if they are going to sell them un-plated as well as chrome plated. That way people can either take them to their own quality chrome shop or paint them as needed.

If un-plated bumpers won't be available then I guess I won't be a customer. It will also take this company longer to pay for the tooling if they are not willing to be flexible on the plating or finish. It's either be flexable and sell more bumpers, or make them one way, sell fewer bumpers, screw everyone else, and complain that they are not selling enough of them. This should be a no brainer!! We'll see!!!

I'll be picking up a front one for my 70 AMX, because the one on my car is pretty badly twisted, and  doesn't fit very good. It's already been straightened but it's still not a great fit.
 
Question: Will they be available without chrome plating, or will I have to have it stripped to paint it??

Dennis,
They will only be available chromed. We sent a really mint, untouched '70 front as a sample, so it should be a great one to repro from. I wanted to send bumpers that were either NOS or excellent
used. It was important to have examples that had never been bent or re-chromed.

They will only be made in the OE thickness, sorry.

I would bet that owners of BB cars would pay the price for the chrome if you left those bumpers raw metal, as it is a PITA to remove the chrome to paint the bumpers for BB cars. You would still get your full price without the cost of chrome and those needing bumpers to paint would save the cost of removing the chrome.

Heck yeah they would! I would gladly pay for a chrome bumper if you would send it raw.
