73 bumpers on a 76?

Can I take the bumpers off of my 73 and put them on my 76 w/out too many difficulties? are the bolt holes all in the same place? Will I need to make any modifications?

I put early bumpers on my 76. It will require bolt holes to be drilled. Also, there is a tab running across the front of the tub which will need to be cut off. It's not difficult. There is a how to post on the 914 world site. You'll be shaving off about 100 pounds at the extreme ends of the car.

There are also tabs on the sides where the bumper cover hooks. You will need to cut those off or grind them off. Make sure to paint all bare metal so the R-word doesn't start!
