Rhinoplasty


In late 2013 I bought a 69 2+2 hdtp in Saskatchewan for the frame, to use under my Parisienne.    I harvested some stuff from the car, but the nose was too far gone (and both studs on the back broke off during removal).   The outer layer just crumbled away, but had a smooth surface underneath:

The entire bumper can be seen on the left in this photo.   I really don't remember if either of the grille sections were any good, but I think the whole thing ended up at the metal recycler.

If anyone is wondering what's going on this this photo, I was banging the dirt out of the boxed frame rails before taking it for sandblasting.  You can see the pile of dirt from the drivers side.

For my wall art 69 bumper the drivers side bottom of the endura nose was somehow yanked down.

With the photo's from the ebay link that ABC123 posted I was able to determine the skeleton that holds the endura on.     I took the nose off, did a little pushing and got it back into shape:

This is what I did with my first 1969 back in 1984.

Removed the outer layer.

Painted up, it looked pretty good,

After an exhaustive search I found some pics of the original nose that was on my Laurentian:

That is the early one, rare as hell to even find a picture of one as they are all gone to dust.  The inner lip is much thinner and not tapered like the later one.  I have a few but none have enough material left in that area to see the lip.

It looks like even the frame is different.

The fiberglass cover I have, would be perfect for this type.
