Please Help ( 1970 restoration )

I’m working in my 70 impala for 2 years till now but I’m disappointed because I can't find any company which can offer front bumper.

Please if anyone have any source or advice.

Thanks

There are no reproductions that I know of. You will have to have your bumpers smoothed and welded up and then re-chromed.

A few companies do this and have earned a national reputation for quality work (didn't say or imply that they would be cheap):

Memphis Plating Works Inc

another who provides a price list is:

another Tennessee plater is:

and:

http://www.tricityplating.com/

In case you are wondering the EPA and OSHA and NiOSH and every other government organization interested in not further contaminating the ground water are really strict on chrome platers that seem to be centered in and around Tennessee and Nevada. If you wonder why; just note the number of warning signs stating "Do not drink the water!, or eat fish removed from this stream/ river/canal in Tennessee which has a long history of heavy industry thanks to cheap electrical power.

Check epay. And a good rechromer can fix dents and bends very well

I just noticed that this is his first post; so let me say Welcome to the Team!

Second thing I noticed was his address. Even shipping to Tennessee (which is a long way for many, though centrally located in the middle of country) it is going to be way out side of UPS's regular pick up and delivery route.

In your case I can only recommend a parts car from somewhere closer by.
