Response to a request by Matt Barre and Mike Burdick;
Sorry it took so long to respond.
My '79 does not have a rear bumper, seats,guages, or top. The dash looks
like a spaghetti bowl with it all hanging out.
Sorry, no bumper trim, Matt.
Mike, at this time I have not settled on parting out the '79 or selling it
"as is" ( a complete mechanical with misc. sheet metal). If i don't get
rid of it in the next month i will part out.
Thanks for the response.
