I've been reading the forum for a short while, and wanted to ask a question or two. I purchased a 77 Couple DeVille to drive in the winter (as the Corvette sits in the garage), but I'm enjoying it so much I'd like to fix it up and I'm thinking about keeping it. Overall the car is in good shape with the exception of some surface body rust on the trunk, & like alot of these that I've seen, it's plactic is crumbling. Most noticeably on the bumperfillers in the back. I found a junkyard that sent me two maroon replacements, which I painted gold to match the car. My question is, I'm assuming I'll need to remove the bumper to replace these? There is a lip where these install so I tried to fit one on without removing the bumper, but no luck so far there.
Has anybody done this, that could share some wisdom?
Thanks in advance.
