Can't comment on the bumper, but I will say my Glasstek hood was very nice, and I will buy my next hood from them again..

I have harwood front and rear bumpers on my 81 malibu, they look good. I also have a glasstek hood also a very nice piece.

Is it true the glasstek bumpers have the trim strip molded in? I have harwoods on my car now and want to switch if the strips are part od the bumper.

Looks like a call to glassteck is in order. For the guys that have used em how do you mount them? Do they have a reinforced mounting flange? Thanks again for all the help
