Original "Endura" bumper brackets & mounting hardware
« on: February 20, 2008, 01:16:00 AM »
Hi all!

I'm working on a '69 Camaro project and I need the original mounting brackets & hardware for the "Endura" bumper.  I know repro's are available, but I only want original
components.  Here is an image I found of an orignal outer bracket ( assembled ) to the bumper.  I'd like to see these components separated so I can see exactly what
real ones look like.  The socket head cap screw used to attach the bracket to the bumper is also critical.



Can anyone post one or more images of the original outer bracket(s), bushings, bolts?  Also, I'd like to see what the original bolts looked like that attached
the inner brackets to the bumper as well.

Finding this stuff (correct) is like hens teeth.

I would be content to let sleeping dogs lie. Blast and paint as is. Lean on that screw and either it will break or the sleeve in the steel liner of the bumper will break.

If you must, try loosening the screw with very light force.

William,

Thanks for responding.  Please allow me to clarify:  I own a pristine Endura bumper, but it does not have any of the attaching hardware. 
The image I posted is of one I found online.  I don't own it, just merely posted an image to clarify my point.  My main problem is that I
can't seem to find what the original bracketry & mounting hardware looked like.

hihorse,

Your brackets are the inners - I'm looking for the outers at this point.  But I will consider them ;D

I took pictures of my original Endura bumper brackets. These brackets are mounted to the frame extension.
I'm not sure if this is what your looking for if you need the pictures of the other brackets let me know.

Thanks asm69 ! 

Yes - I'd love to see the same type of images for the outer brackets too.  Those are the ones I'm trying to locate cirrently.  If you can manage to separate the
original internal hex head bolt that holds the outer bracket to the bumper, that would be fantastic.

Thanks,
Steve

Glad the pics helped.  The brackets belong to a friend and are part of the full set he has, so are nfs.  I do see these on Ebay from time to time.

Yes Paul !  It's been quite a challenge finding all the correct, original stuff.  This search is done.  Thanks for the heads-up on that one. ;D

Just a few more......  Original six (6) 6-lug converter bolts for my CX THM400 and original 8 screws
used to mount the flapper valve frame in the ZL/2 hood..... ;D
