I recently acquired a picture perfect aluminum bumper for my 71 sovereign
. I have the hinged plate that goes over it. I am getting ready to replace the C channel runs,and crossmembers in the rear...the old ones are gone...rusted away. My question is this....does the bumper mount directly to the C channel? what is the hinged cover plate for?...how far over the bumper does it extend,or does it go flush to the inner or outer point? I've been looking at photos here,and throughout the WWW...and
I see the larger plate of the bumper goes on top.where do the springs mount? I do not have any springs,so that may be moot...might go with JBWeld and magnets.Any input is appreciated.
