Hi members! This will most likely get bumped back up a few times over the next few weeks and I'll really appreciate any help I get! I'm having a panel off paint job done and while I had all of the panels off I went over the entire frame with 3 coats of Rust-o-leum. 1 coat ruddy brown, then a coat of flat black toped with a coat of gloss black.
I took many pictures and then had them printed so as I get the panels back I'll remember how everything went back! Of course there's going to be a few parts where I said to myself "ah, don't bother...I'll remember how it went back"! WRONG My first part are these 2 front bumper stops. Anyone have a pic of where they go back on
Thanks, Marc

All GM vehicles that did not have steel bumpers had these tow blocks in some form placed at the same universal dimensions as a Fiero. These Pads helped support the front end when the car was being picked up/transported by the old-fashioned style tow-trucks

I take them off my personal cars. The picture shows where they attached. They also show up in the 22P parts book.

Thanks for the the reply. Maybe I'll just leave them off then.
You jarred my memory that I have a 22p somewhere in my shed. I should dig it out and save myself allot of questions with this thread!

New one: Is this the way this piece of plastic gets attached to the back?

If it's right then what are the holes on the bottom for?

I think it fits better like this?!

Still don't know what the bottom holes are for?

Edit: I just looked at the back facia and I think it attaches to this?

Tag lights look good. The plastic piece is where the bottom of the bumper mounts. Just test fit the bumper to determine proper orientation.

I know where this goes but not really sure it's purpose and if it's worth putting back on.

It attached to the bottom on the front fascia sliding along the inside edge. Not sure if it attaches to anything else and if I need it because my bottom lip is different now with my sage chin spoiler. Maybe for support to keep the nose from warping? I went through the trouble of refurbishing but I don't see a reason to put it back on unless someone advises me too.
Thanks, Marc

Is it a GT nose? If so, have you cut away the nose behind the spoiler? If you haven't cut it, you'll need the brace to support the rear of the nose. It gets two brackets that mount up to the frame to support it. If it's a GT nose with a chin spoiler, you might want to cut out the grille opening for more air. If it's a Formula/coupe nose, you'll need to still use the brace(s) & the original spoiler to scoop the air up into the radiator.

Hi Paul. I didn't have to cut the nose at all. My chin spoiler fit right over the bottom of my original nose. I have the 2 side brackets attached and it's all extremely rigged. I remember now this attached to the bottom of the nose before I attached the spoiler but now that it's covered this part has no where to go. Unless I force it on the bottom of the spoiler but I don't see how that would help with anything?!
Thanks for chiming in, Marc

Does the fiberglass spoiler go all the way back to the brackets? If so then you probably don't need the brace pictured.

Yes it does. Thanks Paul. I'll bring it to the next swap meet. I'm sure someone's is rusted beyond repair and could use it!
