Default 1975 rear bumper cover

Urethane or flexform. Ease of fitment and color match. Also thoughts on best place to get one. Thanks

My Flexform is now wall art in my garage. Would definitely go with a quality fiberglass version. The money saved on a cheap Flexform bumper will be eaten up by bodywork costs.

Aurora, 1975 red manual. Just a driver. I think my 17 yo granddaughter loves it more then me. She wants to drive it but she needs to learn the stick. My son will be teaching her once he has his tracker upgrade is done.

My body guy mentioned the extra cost to properly finish it for fit and paint. That why I was looking at urethane

Welcome,,,you might want to check, how many your body man has done, price of good urethane is three to four times the price of good glass cover, and glass should fit well, ( remember, most are not just a bolt on fit ) their is much to think about, mainly, are you painting whole car, or just bumper cover,,, lots of good posts here on bumper cover replacement,

my glass rear bumper fit on my car with no body needed, I had to remove the bumper after paint job to attach the rear license plate light , no problem bolting it back on. I did have to leave some brackets off due to it not being a urethane bumper(supports for tail lights, don't need them now).

For an alternative bumper you might want to look at the thread.
https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...onversion.html
I also live in Colorado, so if you want to look at my car PM me, and we can get together.



If you want to buy a stock style flexiglass bumper, I have one for sale at a huge discount.
