Love your build, car is coming out nice. Wish I had gone LS on my car instead of my BBC. I too have he Heads Up Composites front and rear bumpers but haven't installed them yet. Are they easy to install, and did you have to reinforce them at the mounting points.


Thanks! Sorry for the late reply been trying to get her ready for some testing. Pretty simple.
I just used washers on both sides on the front. For the rear instead of drilling holes we notched it.
Wasn't enough material to drill holes.


On the rear bumper...just wondering what you mean instead of drilling the holes you notched it. Are you referring to notching
the Heads Up bumper in some way, or the flange on the car. Thanks again!



He is right about not being much room to mount... I would have built them differently, like leaving more of a return to mount them...
Here are pics of my mount job not the best but it works

What up with your Malibu? Been wondering what headers you ended up using?
