Arrangement of the Bumperettes on the bumpers was created by Aris Loumidis
Hi all!
After many years I just re-chromed the bumpers and I’m about to reinstall the Bumperettes on them.
I had a problem with the RL Bumperette which I had placed above the exhaust pipe; it was always black with exhaust deposits and ended up eating away the chrome and rusting both the bumper and the bumperette itself.
I now need to re-adjust it's position so any pictures of both rear and front bumpers would be appreciated!
Thanks guys, Aris

It really helps if you can get the exhaust tip back further from the bumper and bumperette. This can be a problem on many cars. point exhaust tip toward ground or do a baloney cut on pipe.

Thanks all for the help, as I see on the picture of the white car, the RL bumperette it is placed way on the left side, so this will help.
On my exhaust there is now a Chrome added-on extension; is this original on our cars? Is it maybe the M 102-32 Sleeve extension George mentions? (sorry cannot send picture I'm away from Athens right now) If a chrome extension is original I could easily pull it out so it clears the bumper as Mike suggests.
Also Mike, please explain to me what is a 'baloney' cut?

Instead of cutting a pipe straight across at a right angle you cut it at a angle, say 45 degree angle or any other angle that suits. This directs the exhaust gases down before the end of the pipe.
