Sounds OK to me. Since it sounds like you're going to do a body-off
it is best to lighten the body as much as possible before you remove it

It sounds to me like you're going to build a '74 with '70 bumpers which
Keep in mind, the '74 doors (inner support panel) differ from the '70
the closing pull is in the center of the door rather than on the top
rail as on the '69 - '73. You can probably cover the '74 door with '70
door panels if you want....you just can't go the other way without a LOT

You can use the '74 valance with a '70 bumper. The '74 just has tag
flush mounted at the top of the tag. You could wire them in with the
mounted tag lights on the '70 bumper and have a lighted tag from above
below.....COOL! It is a LOT of work to change a valance. If you don't
change it, don't. The only advantage is that you can thoroughly
and preserve the area between the inner and outer rear valance when you
it off. You can probably do just as good a job by leaving it on and
it with Waxoyl AFTER the car is painted.
Good luck!!! I'm doing a '74 now. If your '74 Front and Rear bumpers
good condition, I'd be interested in buying them.
