i plan to throw one of these on my 80 here in the next week or so. the bumpers haven't been hit or removed since 1980 so it makes me a bit sad to switch it up. weight savings ftw

btw i know that isnt a full early 850 cover. it seems to be a modified lower early 850 section pulled forward to be flush with a late 2xx cover. looks GOOOOOOOD

hey a-holes why don't you guys do a search and point him to a few threads......try and be helpful. To be honest I know of only one person in the US who has fitted a FWD bumper to a 240.....but you guys must know of tons of threads so enlighten us.

Thanks

I only used the lower half of the bumper. I was going to attempt to put the whole bumper on the car, but probably not until spring.

My showroom thread on the lower half:

after reading this thread /\ i found out the lower half of the 93 bumper cover is seperate from the upper support cover section. ive decided to do the same as the setup referencedin that thread only with the park bench bumper like the orange one above. the cover i'm using is starting off as dark green too!

:lol: whos being an A dash Hole? and there are atleast three people on here using the bottom half of the 850 old style bumper. and many using the whole late model bumpers. but the thing is the early style almost looks better by just using the bottom half.

don't mind the bit of gangster lean. the passenger side axle is out so the right rear is jacked up an 1" or so.

I liked it but hey the cover was free. Matched the paint and it did not look to bad. No one has come out with any options for 200s so I made due.
