Well Here They are !! Here are some photos of the Bumper Delete Kit available through Project 321.

These are one piece Billet Aluminum. The base unit will be powder coated or painted a satin black color. This kit would retain the stock bumper Frame extensions. It is a simple and quick project. It can be a DIY project. It takes about 10 minutes to remove the stock bumper via the 8 small bolts. These covers will mount quickly. It will save an approximately 13 Lbs of extended polar weight.

As stated before I really like the looks of the bumper delete kits that are out there but they are expensive and there is a lot of work associated with those kits due to the removal of the bumper posts. There are many attachment points to the OEM posts This style would eliminate that requirement and would be easily reversed.

The covers over the posts create a stand off zone between the posts and the exhaust tips. A local GT owner who saw the basic concept commented that the stock exhaust tips looked very cool sticking out without being cut back. Reminiscent of the old race cars!!


Here are some of the advantages of this Style of Bumper Delete .
- Lower cost
- Easy DIY project. ( 30 minutes estimated total time including beer break )
- Because of the Stand Off Zone the Exhaust does not need to be trimmed ( stock or after market)
- Reduction of Approximately 13 Lbs.
- Easily reversible
- Custom logos or engraving is possible.
- Makes cleaning the back of the car easier.
- There is still some solid frame structure of protruding from the rear.
- The exhaust pipes extending further from the body can reduce the chances of a fire. Don't laugh,, more than one GT has self ignited the stock rear bumper ..:biggrin

I want to personally thank Jake from Project 321 on this latest project .. Jake has proven to be a real metal artist so the machining is first rate !! Jake thanks for making my vision come to life..

Looks very nice Brian. What pipes are you running, cause I don't recognize them? What kind of plastic shroud have you installed over the tungsten car?

STORMCAT,

Ok, I have been resisting modifying my GT from stock for years now, but I really like what you've done here. I especially like the ease of putting it back to stock. How much is the kit going to run and how do I order one?

Frank I installed a clear plastic cover to the top of the lift. When I raise the car it is automatically covered ... no fuss no muss,,, :biggrin
I have the Accufab X pipe on Helenor

Richard,

It's a great way to save some weight a simple mod and easily reversible. You can order them right from Project 321 here. I can tell you they look much better in person

As previously posted by Jake:

O.k. guys here is a little more info on the bumper plates.

1. We are only offering them in powder coat black and raw aluminum.
The black will match the rear grill as close as possible. The raw aluminum
will be sanded for paint on front and a machined finish on the non visible areas.

2. These will come with all necessary hardware for mounting.

3. Pricing will be 500.00 for black and 450.00 for raw/sanded aluminum.


I have attached an order form that can be faxed or e-mailed to us.
You can also pm, e-mail or just place a good old fashioned phone call.

Thanks for your interest and thanks again to Brian (Stormcat) for his excellent design work.

Hi Richard,
I don't know where that March date came from. We have these in
stock now. We can have them painted (black powder only) or shipped
raw so you can paint them to match like Tomy H. did. If you have any
questions I will be hanging out at the shop for the next few hours.
Shoot me a call toll free - 877-584-7321

Thanks!
Jake

^^^^ I agree. That looks REALLY good. Now I'm gonna have to paint my posts heritage blue and get a set of bumper deletes from Jake too!!! Your car must feel the same Stormy, a rolling poster child for Project321. Not that I'm complaining, it looks mighty fine.
