urethane front bumpers on Sharks really take a beating over time; years of exposure to UV and the elements make them crack and pieces will break off. When it was time to replace the front bumper on this ’74 ‘driver’, I opted to go with a TruFlex ‘flexglas’ fiberglass bumper instead of the correct urethane unit. The TruFlex front bumper and a bumper retainer kit were both ordered from Corvette Central. The job isn’t difficult, but it can be tedious at times, so plan on spending about 4-6 hours to complete this project.
