Urethane Bumper Rehab
#11

My question is if you took a string and run it down the face of the bumper centered? would the bumper normally be straight across ?  I cant seem to find a photo of a bumper straight on.
Thanks

I have the answer to your question, but I do have a couple of straight on pics of my urethane bumper. I just had it redone last year. Hopefully this helps.

Thanks Jpaz!
Still a little hard to tell. If a straight edge is put lenght wise dead center of the bumper? is it straight across it or are the ends slightly upwards?
Jpaz, you know where Cedar Springs Mi is at? Thats where I graduated high school.

No problem machattack, sorry not much help. I’m sure someone will be able to answer your question.

Yes, I know Caesar Springs is in the Grand Rapids area. Very cool, small world.
 I’m about 30 miles northeast of Detroit by Romeo.

Hi,  I happened to be in the garage messing around and took these photos. I have 72 vert all original including the cracked bumperSmile
Sorry, a bit burry. It measured 19.5" from the floor taken 2 inches from each end.  Took a measurement in the middle also 19.5".  The floor is flat and concrete.  Rough .. but it appears not to bend up. Maybe this helps.
