Fiberglass bumper

Avoid Stinger Fiberglass....I have been trying to purchase a fiberglass front bumper from Classic Industries for the last year and a half for my second gen pro touring build. The car started as a 1981 shell that is being converted to a small flush fit back glass with a ton of metal work to the car. I couldn't wait anymore for the bumper and I started to make a mold of my 73 enduro bumper to make my own bumper. I then found a company called Stinger Fiberglass, and purchased a bumper from them, what a mistake, it is by far the worst reproduction part I've ever wasted my money on. The shipping was fast and the packaging was great, when I first looked at it it was thin and I figured it was going to need work to install, I added material (fiberglass cloth) to the edges to make a lip to attach to the fenders. I bolted it to the car, then stepped back to look at it and I noticed that the center beam of the bumper was twisted, the drivers side grill cut out was 90 degrees and the passenger side was way off. I will either have to make a mold of my center section and lay it up or buy a Classic Industries. I've sent an e-mail to Stinger but no response. So avoid thaem.

Glad you got it to work, funny you say Ecklers, my bumper was purchased from Stinger but came in an Eckler box. I wonder if you order from Ecklers and Stinger drop ships? It looks like Ray Charles trimmed mine.
