    Description

    These bumpers are re-chromed using the triple plating process. This produces a significantly higher quality finished product because they have a layer of copper, nickel and chrome. It is well worth the hassle and expense by paying a little extra now rather than changing out your bumpers out again in one to five years because the chrome is beginning to deteriorate. For years now, many of the nations top honor Cougar's have worn our bumpers.

    Please know that chrome cracking from the installation of bumper bolts on our rechromed bumpers is not covered under warranty. We have observed that some reproduction wavy washers are of a thicker material than original and require more torque to flatten out properly for a good fit. We suggest that no matter what thickness your repro wavy washer is that you flatten them out in a vise prior to installation so as not to have to apply as much torque when installing. Better yet, reuse the originals whenever possible. Also know that all bumpers once they are straightened and polished lose material (thickness) in the restoration process, often these 50 year old bumpers have gone through this process more than once. Also know that chrome seems to adhere better to virgin metal better than used, recycled metal. With those three things working against you extreme caution is needed when installing your rechromed bumper.

    These have a two year warranty, double that of most of the competition.

    These are un-restored on the back, and after 40+ years, they will all have some degree of surface rust. For those that want to go the extra mile, you can sand the back of the bumper, mask off the front, and coat or spray it with paint or an argent product. You will not cause your bumper harm or void your warranty if you do not do this.

    Also, if you are having difficulty aligning your bumpers, you really need to check out this really cool tool! We have one for loan if you are in the area It only takes seconds and is very easy to use.

    Keep in mind we are always in need of:

    • 69 Front Bumper Cores
    • 70 Front Bumper Cores
    • 1971 - 1972 Front without Bumper Guard Holes
    • 1973 Front Bumper Cores without the holes for the horizontal black rubber impact strip

    If you have extras of any of these bumpers, you can get credit towards anything we have in stock!

    This item must ship via

    Shipping:

    You can ship your core to us for as little as $20 (depending on location) via USPS Parcel Post (www.usps.com) if you only use stretch wrapping. When we ship ours to you it costs more as we need to pad them properly and we add in insurance. Please call 503-463-1130 if you need more details. When sending us your core bumper(s) the following must be in place. We need a copy of your invoice or at the very least we need your invoice # from the top left corner and the date of your purchase.

    You can also Pre-Purchased UPS call tags from us. This allows you to purchase a shipping label to return your core to us at a discount over what the UPS depots and shipping centers will charge you. *READ MORE HERE* . The system will auto calculated the cost to send the core bumper from your Zip Code. You will receive an e-Mail with a link which leads you to a PDF for download or print. Your call tag is activated when the page is opened. Wrap your bumper and hand to a UPS driver, drop off at a UPS Center, or UPS Store.

    *** Keep in mind that when ordering multiple over-sized items from us online that the shopping cart does not know how to best combine items to save you the most money. If the shipping price looks to high, we suggest just selecting 'Manually Calculate Shipping" when checking out.

    Core Information:

    We use a practice called core matching; we compare the core you send, and we send you a re-chromed bumper that was done from a comparable core.

    Severely rusted, flattened, twisted, torn or bumpers with holes drilled in them are not good cores. If you have small holes drilled on the bottom side, we can use those but know in advance that if your cores have holes we will send you like quality, so expect to see "speckles" where the holes were filled. If you would like a better bumper in return we may be able to charge you an up-charge to receive a higher quality bumper. If you have questions about whether your core is acceptable email digital pictures to Orders@CougarPartsCatalog.com.

    *** Keep in mind we are currently in need of 69 front cores and 73 front cores without the holes for the horizontal black rubber impact strip. If you have extras, you can get credit towards anything we have in stock. ***
