    I don't even remember seeing those before, but it's not everyday you see the underside of a C30. Well unless you own one, lol.

    I was going to try to straighten them but I figure they are streached a bit and I need them undamaged in order to verify the frame in close to where it should be. I have a feeling the left frame horn is going to need a bit of twisting anyway. I know a few C30s in the yard so I will be looking at them soon. I need a sway bar and the frame mounts too. After that I have most all the parts needed.

    So I came across this bumper for $40.00 and and contemplating picking it up. The bumper I have now is off of a '77 and I have an 80's fromt clip so the curve of the bumper is incorrect. I would need to pick up some fog lights or somthing to fill the holes. I can't decide if I want to go this route or not........

    Wasn't it the '81 models that had the signals in the bumper like that?

    Could be. It would be going on an 87 frame. I think I am going to pass on it and keep my eyes open for one from an 86 or 87.

    It should bolt right up the your frame. I always liked the idea of getting that bumper, and putting some auxiliary driving lights in those openings.

    It's 81-82 bumper, and if you have a 77 bumper, you'll need the 80s bumper brackets. I would go the route, and put some driving lights in it like you want to.

    If you do go that route, you know putting the proper bumper on, I think I have some extra front brackets.

    I may opt not to do the driving lights and go with a different bumper.

    :shrug:Well, I just talked to a guy that has one without the signal holes and he wanted $200.00 for it. Seems kinda steep to me. I could see if it was OEM never installed but it's a take off and it ain't that pretty! He has had it for sale over a year now so.....:shrug:

    Can anyone tell me what size those turn signal holes in the bumper are? They look to be about 3"x7"

    Heading to the salvge yard on saturday looking for parts! Got a small list but one thing I need an answer too.
    How can I tell if a flywheel is for an 11" or 12" clutch? I would like a 12" but not sure if I can find one. Will be needed for my '78 350.

    I also cane across a bumper for this build and looking at that on sunday.

    I may be wrong, but I think the flywheels are the same, just the wearing surface is different on the clutches themselves. I say that because I have a couple flywheels from my old '65, and they were for 283 engines, however, when I changed over to a 350 we just put in a 12 inch clutch and it bolted right up. If I am wrong, someone please correct me.
