You're right that bumper is in much better shape. I am going to be putting a fiberglass rear bumper on my KITT as I also was not happy with the stock bumper.

i was thinking that to, may still do it, but the body shop guy said its like the KR nose, it takes alot of work to fit right, plus KIDD couldnt guarantee fitment, rob louisells products i heard suck, and that leaves scott at $400 plus shipping, but one of my friends said one tiny ding and the bumper gonna crack more easier

I take it you did not notice in time to wipe it off. :( That sucks. POR-15 is pretty hardy, but even paint stripper if left sit will eat at it eventually. By the way, your pictures are not showing up, at least for me anyway.
