Front Bumper adjustment
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

See User information
I"m doing a rechrome on the front bumpers
56 The 400
after removing the bumpers and the support
brackets (for cleaning and painting) I found
that 1 of the two main bolts that hold the bracket to the
frame has has a built in concentric under the head
this goes into the long slot on the bracket
then passes through the Frame to be bolted
the front bolt provides a pivot point.
So don't throw those bolts away,
I almost did as I'm replacing screws and bolts
with SS. where I can.

Have you selected the shop where you are going to have your chrome work done? I live in Simi Valley and I use a place that I can recommend. He is in the L.A. area, does the triple chrome process, he picks up and delivers and not at a bad price for chrome work these days.

When something wasn't completely right I haven't had problems with him redoing it. He diid all the chrome & nickle plate work on my '32 and some on my wife's '55.

Thanks for the heads up on the bolt heads,
