[E-Type] Installing a motif bar on a Series 1

I’m trying to install a new motif bar on my 67 Series 1 OTS.
Need help figuring out how the supplied mounting bolts, BD
24448, attach to the motif bar and to the chrome bumper
extension. The bolt is just a threaded bolt bisected by a
rubber piece.
Thanks,
Steve–

wHEN I WORKED ON this , I made a special wrench , however,
discovered later, it would have been easier to remove
headlights and sugar scoopes to gain access to inside hood

On my S1 bonnet the bolts attaching the two ends of the
motiv bar to the bumper are in the radiator opening, not
under the scoops. Bolt heads easily reached with a 1/4’’
drive socket.

I think I took the overriders off and loosely assembled the
bar before offering the assembly up to the bonnet.–

Steven,
With the bumper in place you can hand thread and hand
tighten one end of BD2448 into the threaded hole on the back
of the motif corner extension(BD19113). The ends of the
motif bar go on the now rear facing threaded ends of BD2448.
Attach with an appropriate size nut(I use a small 4.5 inch
socket wrench) and your good to go.

Awful job.
The new mounts tend to fall apart too.
I just use a 1/4’’ bolt about 1 1/2’’ long. Grind a point on it to
make it easier to locate in the thread in the bumper.
I cut 2 sections of rubber hose about 3/8’’ long and sandwich the
motif bar mount hole between them. Tighten the bolt up until the
hose sections are firmly squished. You may need a washer under the
bolt head.
This holds it firmly in place but still allows some flex and
movement of the bar.–

I agree, awful, and I also had a rubber buffer split.
Honestly I don’t see a reason for a shock mount to need to
be here. The bonnet just shouldn’t have that much flex. I
guess they figured the bumpers would actually be used as
bumpers which is something we’d be loath to do.

Mine are installed with Allen head bolts. I think I used a
couple rubber washers in between just to keep the metal
parts from fouling. It makes it much easier to work on,
without the need to try and get a socket in there. It also
maintains better alignment. The bar always tended to sag a
bit due to the rubber buffers flexing…and finally failing.–

Hello all
On a series 2
Has anyone ever removed the Motif Bar and then used the Series1 Motif Corner Extensions part # BD19113 to cap off the end of the fender blade? I want to eliminate the center motif bar completely.
I know I may need to cut off that mounting tab that protrudes from the fender blade.
I am more concerned if the contour profiles of the corner extensions match up to the fender blades
Thanks

I just realized that I incorrectly referred to the bumper blades part # BD335576 as fender blades, should be bumper blades

What Andrew said. The replacement mounts are rubbish; or at least the one’s I bought were.

I substituted Robertson square socket head screws for the attachment bolts. Then used a stubby Robertson screwdriver by reaching inside the mouth. Never needed to touch it again.
