Front Bumper adjustment

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,

OK
Sorry I missed this post until today
I was there yesterday... only about a 40 min
drive down the coast.
maybe 2 dozen cars. about 6 vendors.
I left around 10:30. How many times can you
walk around and see the same cars.
on one 55 Caribbean was there, a man
drove his over from Az.
Which brings up a question maybe you know
the answer.
Is the ground strap bolted to the water pump
housing? He had a correct braided strap
and I'm using a cable, which is not correct..
Yes I know I've made changes, but somethings
need to stay the same.
