Hey Joe,
I've got repo's on my 70, IMHO, I'd stay away from them if you're planning a concourse or show resto.The one's I have and the one's I've seen, are made from a much thinner gauge of metal than the original's.
Plus, the plating isn't all that great, there's rough spot's, ripple's and so on.
If you have your original's, get them rechromed from a reputable shop, it may be more expensive up front but it will be cheaper in the long run. BTW, I bought my repro's from a large manufacturer who advertise's in Hemming's, Hot Rod, Super Chevy etc.....those are my thought's, I'm sure you'll hear more! Good luck, Nick P.

bumbers are like anything else, you have to check around, some are excellent quality, some are junk, go to large swap meets and check them out.
