Man that makes a big difference on the back end of the car.....Shiiineeyyy.....


You should have just used some of that aluminum foil tape over the rust.  I saw a old guy the other day who had done this to his late 80's Buick.  But most of the bumper was gone...just tatters of foil tape blowing in the breeze.

Today I converted it to Mopar Electronic Ignition. My distributer was bad anyway so it was the right time to do it. Does run smoother and has more get up and go.

Is that ignition available though Mopar Direct Connection, or Summit ?
May do that to the '70 F3, and also I wonder if a '58 poly 354 could be adapted?
seem like the way to go, more stock, sort of, than Pertronix.

Also did you just get a new (rechromed) bumper, or send the old one out for a re-do?
If the latter what does that run you?

Actually Roger I bought the kit from my local Dodge dealer. It was $217. The rear bumper I bought from a guy on Station Wagon Forum web site. It was an older rechrome that had been sitting on the shelf probably since the eighties. Still looks new though. I'm going to get my front bumper rechromed locally and it will run $325.

Sounds about right, the local bumper re-chrome guy here is about 350 for a '70 front. Not show chrome but nice driver quality, Leaburn used them for the BOAB.
