Installation Instructions for El Camino Front Bumper Cover


Place both the front bumper cover and fender extensions on the ground as they will be installed on the vehicle. Line up front extensions with cover so they align properly. Drill four ¼” holes, (evenly top to bottom), from fender extension to bumper cover, both sides.

Remove front bumper, (4 bolts per bumper shock). Remove both rubber filler sides attached to bottom of front fender, (save the nuts as they will be used to install bumper cover). Disassemble chrome bumper from inner bumper, keeping cosmetic panel located between them. Place cosmetic panel evenly on bumper cover and mark holes. Drill holes out large enough for adjustment.

Place inner bumper into back of bumper cover with cosmetic panel between and reinstall factory bolts and nuts, loosely. Reinstall bumper unit back on vehicle and loosely reattach to bumper shocks. Place and attach side fender extension onto bumper cover. From under the vehicle, mark factory holes (with pen or pencil), on back of bumper cover where rubber fillers used to attach to front fender. Remove side fender extensions and bumper cover. Drill out the marked holes large enough for adjustment, and reinstall Bumper Cover, loosely. Install factory rubber filler side bolts only in holes just drilled to front fender, loosely.

Hold fender extension against fender and place 2” masking tape on front fender where insert hole must be drilled. Place fender extension against fender and attach to cover with pre-drilled holes. Pull extension back far enough to mark insert hole with pen or pencil. Do this by looking down from top, and placing mark on masking tape where top center of insert lays. Next,  mark side of insert by sticking marker between extension and fender and mark side center of insert. Remove fender extension and extend marks so they meet for hole placement. Drill ½” hole so insert head has room for adjustment.

Reinstall fender extension and secure to bumper cover again. From back side of fender, install      ¼ x 20 x ½” hex bolt, large thick washer, large thin washer, ½” small washer into insert, loosely. Next, drill hole from extension tab into wheel well and attach with ½” sheet metal screw and washer. Pull slightly out at back bottom of extension and install final ½” sheet metal screw and washer in wheel well. Repeat for opposite side. Adjust and tighten all attachment points and you’re done.
