Cool. I have a fiberglass bumper - had to make my own brackets because I don't think they had aluminum brackets when I got my bumper.

How much do the fiberglass bumpers run and where do you get them?

Guys,
I have one ordered already. I should have it shortly. Crites makes most items in house and it is on a as ordered basis and worth the wait. They also repro the 71 429 radiator shroud, if anyone needs one.
Thanks, Jay

I believe I took off as much as I could being that I am going to run a 460. Between the bumper, brackets and cast iron intake, I had to lose at least a hundred or so.
Thanks, Jay

same here, i need to do the bumper stuff. i will be running a alumium intake and headers instead of manifolds. having alumium wheels help too. my old 15x7 magnum 500 weighed more than my 17x8 alumium wheels and my 17x11 alumiums on my street tires. also not to mention having 15x4's in the front with front runners.

for the interior, i am only putting back in a factory looking carpet. i'm going to replace the door panels with alumium silver panel and no back seat. the front seats will be 2 kirkey seats. but not to mention XX lbs of bars for the roll cage.

hey guys i have been thinking of shaving some weight as well. my idea i don't know if it will work but i want to try is, taking the front bumper iron out of the cover and welding up a aluminum one and putting the cover back on. is it possible to get the cover off without ruining it?
