Thanks Omniac.... Silver GLH with Red interior is my favorite!I can't comment on paint color or stripping methods, but back when I had my GLHT, I had 2 original Omni bumpers (silver) powder coated in satin black. Hard to see the effect in a picture but my GLHT is the one in the top banner. I never had to worry about paint chipping either. If I can find some additional photos I'll post here.
Thanks, Yes I agree with the interchangeability. You wouldn't believe how much stronger it is than the regular bumper with those gusset plates welded in. About the same weight too. I'd guess 2-3 times the torsional strength, maybe more. Someone that was going to tow something small with their L-body (tiny trailer, motorcycle, sailboat, etc.) would be wise to add these gussets to their rear bumper. The bumper brackets look like they were made to shear off and crumple to absorb impact, as they have just a small tack weld in addition to those corrugated areas. Those areas where addressed as well when I tucked the bumpers in a few inches.Thanks Todd, this will go in the memory bank. For now I am sanding and repainting the rear bumper that I am working on BUT I will look for 2 more to have powdercoated in the future. It's nice that these are the same bumper front and rear. I like how you took the center section out to enhance air flow!!!! super trick!
