Default 70 GTO fiberglass endura

Hi all,
Looking for any pictures/tips for successful installation of fiberglass front bumper on '70 GTO on a street car. I know it's been done, any help/advice/product recommendation is appreciated. I noticed that Glasstek does a bumper with brackets already fitted - good idea or better to DIY mounts? Looking to lose an easy 75lbs from the best place possible...

Got any pictures of the Glasstek Bumper and brackets

There's a few pics on their website but they're poorly lit so it's very hard to see. This is the best shot.

You can attach some aluminum brackets by fiberglassing them to the bumper or you can make some tabs on the car that you can use fasteners to hold the bumper on.
You can shear a sheep many times, but you can only skin them once.

Is it possible to over lay it on top of old Endura? maybe grinding it all down some then just glue it to old???

If it were me I would explore this avenue I am thinking of doing it to my 70 Bird
