Pictures of my Monte's bumper tuck. Relieveing the severe " underbite"
 2 1/4" cut out of the tubing with a chop saw for the 73's " bumper shock absorber. Welded back together. The elimination of the center tubing created a "v" which was perfect for getting good proper weld adhesion in the weld area.

That's awesome work! Probably a good example of what they would have looked like had the new bumper standards not been legislated for '73.

I am a fan of tucked bumpers.  Yours is the first on a Monte that I've ever seen.  Looks nice.

Might as well bring this back from 2 yrs. ago. I saw the Malibu's with the bumper tuck just never a Monte, that's sharp.
So I made up some new mounts but I think I went a little overkill for something nobody will ever see.MONTE FRONT BUMPER TUCK 100_4011

If I had a mill to make them a bit easier might be worth while, but I made the cuts with a hacksaw ground & filed smooth.

Can you post the specs? I'll have my brother make me some if he can, or maybe I'll send to a machine shop.

I haven't tried them yet so I'm not 100% percent sure if the bumper placement will be right.
Oh yea the plates I used were 1/4" thick but 3/16 would be fine, I didn't have any 3/16 on hand.
