Installation Instructions for El Camino Rear Bumper Cover with Corvette Taillights

    
Place both rear bumper cover and rear quarter panels on the ground as they will be installed. Line up rear quarter panel against rear cover so they align properly. Drill a ¼” hole from rear quarter into cover top and bottom for both sides.

Next, remove taillights from bumper. Unscrew pigtails from taillights and pull through inner bumper and remove bumper, (4 bolts per bumper shock). If you wish to use inner bumper, remove chrome outer bumper and place cover over inner bumper. With felt pen, mark inner bumper for cutting so taillights will fit inside the inner bumper. Reinstall inner bumper.

Remove rubber filler under tailgate and both rubber filler sides. Drill holes in top of bumper cover and into holes from rubber filler. Place cover over inner bumper, as it will be installed, and secure with ¾” sheet metal screws.

Remove left and right side marker lights and disconnect lens from lights. Drill outside marker attachment holes, (marked in rear quarters), with ¼” drill bit. Put side marker pigtail through rear quarter and reinstall into lens. Attach lens and quarter with 1 ½” sheet metal screw back into body, loosely. Reattach rear quarter to cover, (these holes should already be pre-drilled in step 1). When tightening be sure that quarter and cover align properly. Place quarter inside rear of rear wheel well. Drill and secure a ¾” sheet metal screw and washer. Pull slightly out at bottom back of rear quarter and install final ¾” sheet metal screw.

The final step is to connect your taillights. This is done by cutting the two running and brake lights per side and installing the new pigtails. Your back-up lights may be used in the Corvette lens without any modifications.

If exhaust pipe is covered by the bumper cover, you can (1) cut out cover to accept the exhaust, (2) install exhaust extension, so they exhaust will hang down lower, (3) cut exhaust tips back far enough to install exhaust tip turn-downs.
