re: Body to bumper seals

Without the seals the rear of the car gets pretty dirty pretty quickly. The rear bumper acts like a scoop and blows a lot of air and dirt onto the tail panel of the car. With the bumpers off, now is the time to install those seals.

I do agree with Rich. The rear bumpers are like a Sta. Wgn. Air deflector in reverse. My 70 El Camino has a rear seal on the body to the bumper.

Re: Body to bumper seals

Is there an aftermarket source for them?

Re: Body to bumper seals

Well, just about ANY Chevelle restoration parts vendor would have them.

Re: Body to bumper seals

Anyone come up with a way to mount with the staple type?

The staples are entirely not needed. The bumper will hold the seals in place. The center piece does need the push clips, but the two outer pieces just need to be slipped onto the pinchweld and the bumper then needs to be put on. If the car is too slick, a few strips of double sided tape can be used inside the seals to help hold them onto the car body until the bumper is fully installed.

If you want to install with staples, simply drill small holes and feed wire through the holes to make staples and turn the points down on the underside with needle nose pliers, same method as used to install the front inner fender splash shields.

Thanks Rich my typing lacked a little it should have said without the staples but you answered my question anyway. I like the double sided tape idea
