I made the bumper ends where it wraps around the fender level on the top i am beginning to think the ends should be kicked up that would bring the middle of the bumper down maybe ? i don;t know.. how does your front bumper look or does anyone know how it came out of the factory. I;m getting it ready for the hotrod power tour when i retire soon

I believe if you can rotate the bumper to some degree - bringing the sides (tips) up would bring the center (middle) down. I believe it could be done with the mounts, but you might have to elongate the mounting points. Another thought - were the old mounting brackets used and was the old bumper damaged in a way that would have tweeked the brackets?

thanks for your reply yes the bumper was hit a little so the brackets were tweeked i was working on them yesterday getting them to line up to the holes and to get the top of the ends to sit level now i wonder if they are supposed to have the ends tilted up
