Send a quick note to "Bill T SS70". He explained to me how he got his on his bumper. Great idea, just be careful!!!
He parked his van on one side of the garage door, right up against it. Then, after gluing the bumper on, he backed the Chevelle up and met the door. I beleive he also had a form in place between the Chevelle and the door that made up for the form of the rear bumper. Shoot him an email, I'm sure he'll give you tips!

I used the 3M super black weatherstripping adhesive and wood clamps with the bumper off the car.It's been on there for 3 years now..no problems.In fact,I just picked up a NOS 70 rear bumper in the wrappper and a NOS rear pad and looks like I'll be doing that procedure again.Worst part is having to scuff the bumper with scotch brite
to give the adhesive some extra "bite" for that bond.But,hey it works

I agree with Chris on using the 3M super black weatherstripping adhesive.
2 years ago I got a new rear bumper and new bumper pad with special adhesive from Ausley. Followed the instructions that came with the special adhesive and all was good for a while. Over the winter the adhesive let loose and the pad fell off. I ordered more special adhesive ( 1-800-228-7539) and redid it. Again last winter it came loose. My car is kept in a garage where it doesn't get below freezing.
This spring I ordered a new PRE-CURVED pad from Ground Up and applied it with the 3M Super Adhesive. So far, so good.
