I got all situated with my cheater bar and bottle of penetrating oil, and was ready for the task of removing the nasty old rear bumper on my 66 when I discovered, much to my chagrin, that it was welded onto the bottom of the frame rails.
No worries, I dusted off my oxyacetylene torch and cut the sucker off.
Then I mounted up the contour bumper.
I think it's a noticeable improvement. Next is to repaint the FORD letters on the tailgate and then try to rub some life back in the old Sahara Beige paint.
Here's a before and after set of photos.
