Default Handmade Lionel Eden bumpers Installed

My Dad got his Lionel Eden bumpers installed and painted. Thought I'd share some pics.

For those of you who don't know what the story behind these bumpers here is a bit of history. Pulled this information from the original post.

The handmade Lionel Eden bumpers were the "original" smoothie bumpers made for these cars. The quality is far superior to any other fiberglass or urethane bumper offered today for the Impala/Caprice. Lionel quit making these several years ago...so you'd be hard pressed to find another unpainted/uninstalled set anywhere.

Damn those look good,almost never see any of these fiberglass front bumpers able to fit the rubber piece between the lower headlight and bumper. Fender trim looks to fit nicely to.

I highly doubt it. Making any part for 16 year old cars is quickly reaching the point of diminishing returns.

Thanks guys. Pops was very happy with the finished product.The body guy was impressed with the quality of the bumpers and really took his time to get the lines right.

Posted some more pics up Dropped Fullsize and st95ss Thank you. It's been great spending time and rolling to shows with my Dad. Especially watching the car change so much since he bought in 2002 with 800 miles on it.

I a word - SHARP! Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's bumpers. What other specialties pops got? Like the huge air filter too. Thanks for sharing.
