How do you install the back bumper for a 68 bird? I have the brackets but dont know how they go on.

i tried to help, but idk if this is going to do you any good, i looked through a database i have access to and this was all i could find.



Bumpers - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

196768 MODELS

Rear
METAL BUMPER
Disengage all wiring connectors from the bumper assembly.
Remove all bumper mounting bolts and remove the bumper from the rear of the vehicle.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Make certain to tighten the bumper mounting bolts securely.

URETHANE BUMPER
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Open the trunk lid and detach all rear tail light assembly electrical terminals.
Support the rear bumper assembly with a padded floor jack.
It is a good idea to spray the fasteners with penetrating oil, prior to nut and bolt removal.
From underneath the vehicle, locate and remove all rear bumper assembly mounting nuts.
From inside of the trunk, remove the remaining bumper mounting nuts, then, with the help of an assistant, lift the bumper assembly away from the vehicle. While separating the bumper from the body, look out for any wires or cables still attached or which may snag the bumper assembly.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Make sure to tighten the mounting nuts securely.

If only it said what the removal procedure was lol. I did not take off the bumper so I dont know where anything goes. Trial and error here I come.

Thanks for looking though.

Awsome te pictures and car on the the same but it gives me a better understanding of what goes where.

Now do I bolt the brackets to the bumper first then attach them to the car or attach them to the car then put the bumper on.

hmmm i cant seem to find anywhere that says. but to me i think you would install it on the car first, then the bumper. to me that makes sense, but i could be wrong since ive never done this kind of thing.
