Bumper Shim Kit
Studebaker Avanti, Avanti Bumper Shim Kit
1963-1964 Studebaker Avanti, 1965-1983 Avanti New Old Stock Bumper Shim kit.
New Old Stock front and rear rubber bumper shims. They were installed on all 1963-1964 Studebaker Avantis and all 1965-1983 Avantis with chrome steel bumpers, their purpose was to fill in the free space (gap) between the painted front fenders and the front bumper side nut plates. Also the same free space (gap) between the painted 1/4 panels and the side nut plates of the rear bumper. Studebaker and Avanti Motors had 2 thickness available 1/8” thick and 1/4 inch thick. The number of each required to do any car may vary between thick and thin, but should be the same number on each of the left compared to the right side of the car. Also you should only have no more than 1 thin one at each (free space) gap, ditto all that all that for that back bumper free space (gap). These are not the reproductions that are being sold by others that are the incorrect material and possibly the wrong size. They were manufactured from the original blue print specifications.
