A big thanks!

Post by fasrnur on Thu Dec 15, 2016 8:49 pm



I want to send a big thanks out to Tropdeprojet for the bumper brackets. I received today and have to say they are very professionally done. I would say if you want to tuck your bumper on either end and have a 74-77 Chevelle, he's the one you need to contact.

Thanks again Sebastien.

Thank you, nice to read this!

I love this generation and i think for others, the bumper was the most negative point. I did it naturally on my car. It's a little thing that can make the difference and it's more easy than did a Laguna nose swap. Happy and proud to take part of others projects!

They sure are quality pieces. I painted mine and they went right on. The only way to do this mod.

That they are Damon. First class all the way. They are from Canada indeed and I'm not sure about the 73's. You'll have to ask Sebastien on that SStoolman.

They look great. How much will it tuck the bumper in?

This is mine after drilling and pushing the front bumper in. It should be the same, or very close to the same after I use the brackets.

I have a set from tropdeprojet as well. I haven't mounted them yet, but they are high quality and he was great to deal with.

Yes he is very easy to deal with. I haven't installed mine yet as mine is in storage. If it ever get's above zero, I might just sneak down to the storage unit and try them on. lol

I've never seen this come up, but how much do they weigh as compared to the original bumper shocks?  I'd assume they are lighter.

It's a good question! I will check how much they are lighter.
