    Made my own out of flat stock, sort of resembles a "T", side brackets look like "U" (very thin stock) and aluminum nuts, bolts, and washers. With fiberglass bumpers you can get by with nylon on the bumper . Been on the front of my car since '99 with no problems. Check them regularly.

    Yup - Mark did the bumper brackets out of thin Aluminum stock for the fiberglass bumpers on my Red Coronet and Whale -- and they worked well. Are your bumpers fiberglass or steel?

    Dave, the '68 brackets are pretty simple, you guys could probably whiz them up in your shop in an hour or two.

    Don't overlook the small u-shaped brackets Jay mentioned - I built an aluminum bumper for my '63 years back and the ends sagged (rotated downward) over the course of time.

    I started working on an aluminum bumper for my '68 but set it aside until the car is running again.
