Hey folks, I saw a picture a while ago of a GT with the bumperpad style front bumper that I believe was red; anyone know where to find said picture?

Also, is there a fiberglass re-creation of the bumperpad front end?

No. There's no demand for it, nor are they in short supply (you can find good bumper pad fascias all day long).

I kind of like that. I think it really goes with the lines of the car.

I'm still not sure if I like it or not, but my GT nose seems a bit bent and causing some fitment problems. And I just happen to have an 84 parts car so that nose may be going on it someday. It's in better condition and it's free.
Actually if the paint color matched I probably would have swapped it already.

I could use a good bumper pad bumper in red! Mine has a crack by the belt line and is sagging pretty good.

Yah I think the bumper pad with a chop top fast back look good together! This is a photo chop of what I would like to do to mine someday

These pictures were taken at "Fieros at Gunnison" in Colorado in 2008. I'm not sure who the owner is, but if memory serves he was a local in Gunnison and had some conection with a business called Precision Auto Sales.

Probably just change it all out. The only trim that can't be changed is molded in to the bumper covers.
There are aero rear bumpers (84 Indy, 85 GT, 86 & 87 SE) with the same grooved trim as the bumperpads. Everything else can be removed and replaced without a lot of trouble.

I dont remember doing anything to the trim. It was an 86GT and the nose came off an 84. Its my favorite nose of all the Fieros. I think the GT 'snowplow' nose is ugly myself...mjo.
