I need some opinions for my 92 Caprice wagon

1) Front bumper idea's

2) Grill

3) Rear bumper? Roll pan?

I'm currently working on wooden car mats for the interior. Will post pics when they are done.

Thanks in advance!!

What interior will pretty much bolt in this car easily?

I'm not a fan of the rear roll pans. To get them on, you have to compress your bumper shocks, so if you get hit from the rear, you can kiss your quarter panels goodbye.

As someone who just had a quarter panel repaired on my car... trust me: you don't want that.

Ditto what Sting said. I want all the protection I can get. The roll pans are nice looking, but I don't think the original bumpers are horrible.

To my knowledge no one makes a smoothy skin for a wagon rear. I do think the Olds cover is a little nicer looking than the buick/Chevy as it has only horizontal lines and not little boxes. But then you need the Olds tail lights (longer plastic surround). You could always use body filler or fiber glass to smooth out a stock one (I have thought about this).

I've had a rollpan installed before and have another waiting in storage to put on my current wagon.

If you already lowered your wagon (or if you are going to) The rear bumper does not do you much good anyhow. Your tailgate is basically your bumper.

Haaha!  Sorry!  I'll tuck it and the support away with the stock RMW front bumper.   A good wagon bumper cover is hard to come by!

Sprocket, don't forget that the OCC bumper skin is wider than the other two also, because it extends out to the edge of the lower cladding!
