Rear Bumper Guards
#1
Does anyone know where to get new chrome bumper guards? Mine are the originals sitting on a new chrome bumper and it just doesn't look right. Never mind the fact that the passenger side guard looks like someone deliberately starched it with a key. It has been like this since I got the car.

I didn't want to re-chrome them if I can find new parts because of the deep scratches. I am replacing my door handles too since all the body work was done this year with new paint. Doesn't look right when the door handles' chrome is peeling.

ALSO, should the trim around the brake lights be a dull metal look, or a shiny chrome finish like the bumper?

Eliabeth73,

Here is one on www.ebay.com

Here is pair of 73 rear bumper Guards-

http://www.ebay.com/itm/71-72-73-Mustang...fa&vxp=mtr

The tail light trim on the 1973 mustang are bright with no black. The 1971 - 1972 had the black paint on the tail light trim.

Personally, I'd leave them off. But that all depends if you're going for original.

No one makes new guards

Trim should be shinny - not as much as chrome because they are aluminum

good luck on finding a prestine pair~i have been looking for as long as i had my mustang since 03. Finally got an average looking pair but not a 1 or 2 shape. I would have then cleaned up and a good chrome job.

Wow that's cheap.. I already got my handles from cjpony with the pads for about $90..

So these guards are not factory? I have never seen them off the bumper, I wonder what that looks like. I'll have to google it.

I have never ordered from eBay before. I'm worried I'll get screwed somehow. How would I repair deep scratches before I got them chromed? Are they steel? (Hope it's not a dumb question lol)

Thanks everyone for your help I've been wanted to get new ones for a whole but couldn't find them.

Elizabeth73,
when ever you need parts, check with Don first, I have always had great luck with him.

I would chrome yours, there is a place in Fall River right off route 24 that is very good and very reasonable, I will have to look up the name, and get back to you.

I would re chrome mine but won't the deep scratches look terrible?

There is a place in providence ri called D&D chrome plating. Or I can go to my body shop and they will find someone.
