cygnusx1 Posted April 1, 2006 Share Posted April 1, 2006 There is not alot of info out on the web about doing this swap. Well, here I go. I purchased a set of nice '72 240Z bumpers from BLOZ UP here at the forums. I took the bumpers apart, ditched the dry rotted rubber strips and polished up the chrome with some off the shelf chrome polish. I am in the process of installing them onto my early 1976 280Z that has the big heavy bumpers, shocks, and tons of rubber trim. This morning I removed the 76 front bumper and shocks. Then I hung the 240 one with some duct tape off the hood. The side holes line up, but, the '72 brackets will not work as they are. After some pondering, while laying on my back under the nose of the car, I could see that the original bolt holes for the 280Z bumper shocks were the best bet for hanging new brackets. The 240Z brackets were no where near correct for this fit. I had to bend, cut, and weld them to fit. I will post pics as work progresses. Stay tuned as I complete the front and move to the back bumper. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
