Building an 1985 Buick Regal I-Stock. It appears from pictures I see of most "round nose" stock cars on web sites are using later model nose pieces. The ones that wrap around to the front of the fenders look like asphalt style. What do you guy use besides the "flat" '81-'88 Monte Carlo style? I was looking into a 1997 Regal nose. 64" at the hood 20" high and 80" wide. I'm sure it could be pinched to fit.

I like building my own with black plastic really easy and can make just as good for less $!!!!!!!!!!! Ask if you need help where to cut or how too figure out length.

Hey Norman we get ours from are local race shop and you can get it in any length and it two foot wide. Should run you about $2.00 a foot. We have staring buying 16 ft pieces because it really takes about 8 ft. to do a bumper so that way you can make two. Email me if interested and i will help you on where to cut it if thats what you decide to do. There are some pics under my photos of a firebird bumper i made and ones that i made for my ford Torino. Look here under my photos http://profiles.yahoo.com/geminikid1 they have this plastic in several colors yellow,red,white,black

the wrap around one .the dirt noses are way to wide they are like 72 in across the top.and they only barley cover the bumper. bumper wise you can now run 1 1/2 tube bumpers if you run a plastic nose so you can make it to fit the nose better then stock ones thats one of the biggest problems with the wrap arounds is dealing with the bumper if you have to run stock
