    I was considering deleting the front bumper of my 65 Valiant. Curious if any folks here have done it. Did you mod the front valance panel too? I’ve seen some high dollar looking builds on the internet but would love to see some here. Who’s tried it??

    I did it on my 2nd '65 circa '77-8. I added a 'cuda grill the same time. IIRC, the only thing I did to the front valance was to bend the tabs? down that mounted the turn signals. Wish I had a picture of it.

    Quick Google search turned up this 'cuda so you can get an idea.

      Yes, I did. Remember this was around '77 and I picked up the grill for $20 at a local junkyard. No pull-your-own around here back then.

          If you do it and your bumper's straight, I'll take it because I need a straight one.

          I’ll let you know. Probably be a couple months before I decide for sure.

          There is this look that’s nice. You can buy all their customized fiberglass pieces.
