I replaced my aftermarket bumpers on the GT with a pair of original Leyland bumpers that came with a stalled project I bought and sold a few years ago, the original part number stickers were still attached

Nice work Roger. The real beauty is looking at the ends and knowing they are cut correctly. Big difference. It got to me after so many years. smileys with beer

Those should have been in a museum (at least the stickers!)
Looks great! Nothing fits better than originals...(or NOS originals winking smiley )

You might want to increase your insurance coverage. Nothing like the real thing compared to aftermarket trash.

If they were mine I would coat those labels with some type of clear coat to preserve them in place... Nothing to lose, that's for sure!

My bumpers are originals too, but were in a state of neglect from the PO. I polished them good, and painted the back side (after removing some surface rust) with spray truck bed liner (it's not too thick). Hope this will preserve the back from rusting in the future.
