You could use the dog bones for a hole pattern with the metal inserts removed.

Great article. I just used it to swap out my fiberglass GT bumpers for Chrome bumpers. Looks much better. Curious...
1. What are people doing for the rear bumper top center bracket? I used an L bracket, but its too wimpy to hold the rubber up, so the center is sagging.
2. The BUB's had built in tow hook nuts. What are people doing for front and rear tow hooks? Otto's in Venice Beach installed a Tow hook nut in the front using the right shock bumper mount. PIA, but i had to cut a section out of the chrome bumper and drill a hole in it to clear the tow hook.
