It will look a bit odd, frankly.

Would need a bodykit, maybe for/ from one of the later jags. Blend it in.
Still not as good as the original UK chrome bumpers though IMO.

Some ideas from another thread for the bodykit. Need a bit of imagination to visualise without the bumpers.

If you look at the mark 2 I have included you can see what I'm getting at I think at the front you would have to get bumperettes made up to cover the bonnet hinges just a thought. Thanks for the replys

It looks good, with the exception of the mounting horns that stick out (we just removed them from our project car & installed some lights into the tube) & the hinges for the hood.

I don't seem to have a good picture of the car without the bumpers, but we ended up putting the upper chrome cap back on & left the rubber crush pad off (of both front & rear bumpers) we also reinstalled the rear peripheral chrome bumper trim.

Those 2x little dots under the bumper cap (located below the inner headlights) are additional lights we installed into the mounting holes of the original crush bar.
