|Crush box with front bumper in it|
So, after getting the bumpers out of the significant wrapping, I test fitted them on the car. Back bumper was fine, but when I put the front bumper on, I thought they had re-welded the mounting brackets in the wrong place! They did not align with the mounting bolts. So, now I'm thinking, "I have to send that front bumper back. That's a real pisser!" But then I thought about it for a moment and realized I better research this before I get too upset. So I pulled out my trusty SNG Barratt catalog (great reference) and saw that there are brackets that are mounted on the bumper. I did some digging in my parts boxes and sure enough, there were two brackets that I had already sandblasted and painted and had ready to go, I had just forgot about them! That's what happens when you pull something off a car and then have to remember how it goes back together, nine years later!
Here are the bumpers:

Wow! I really have just about everything done!
