    Hey guys, How much have you seen the elusive front and rear center bumper fillers go for in the past? Thanks

    As much as people are willing to pay.

    I would imagine the prices for the used originals will be dropping now since there are brand new fiberglass corners and centers available now from Classic Parts.

    I intend to replace all of mine with the new fiberglass pieces, but that is pretty low on the priority list since the ones I have currently are in decent shape, except the rear center, which fell off.

    Used front center ones are easy to find but in all the years I've been selling parts I've only sold one.  Sad   I think I got $30 for it.

    If you have a good used rear center filler you can pretty much set your own price because you'll have 1 of only a handful left.

    The lower corner fillers are simple to find too and don't sell for much.  

    Replica Plastics makes the fiberglass parts that Classic Industries sells.  All those pieces have been available for years. Before CI and a few other places started selling them, RP sold them direct to the public.  They no longer do so now.

    I got a rear center filler from them back in 07(?).  See this thread - https://www.gmbbodyforum.com/t8-bumper-filler
    At some point they re-designed it.  It's supposed to resemble the original one better now.

    This one I have is a fiberglass replica I just discovered as I was removing the bumper guards which I just boxed up and am shipping to France. Great idea to use base moulding for the filler.

    Thanks for the link. I didn't know the rear centers were still being reproduced for the 77. Good to know.
