I have noticed plenty of finished snakes lately WITHOUT bumpers and have to ask-

1) Is this legal? If so, I'm game cause it looks so damn hot and lets face it, I can't see the quickjacks or even the overriders doing diddly to prevent any real damage to the car.

2) Anyone know if the "Sans-Bumper" setup is legal in Florida?

3) If you elect NOT to get the body cutout option from FFR, are the bumper holes and/or mounting holes ALSO just traced? This would be very convenient if so since I want to eliminate the side bolts anyway. Plus since I am going with under the car exhaust and possibly no roll bar or full width, this would be even more beneficial.

Quick jacks, even without over riders don't really function as bumpers. It will probably depends on the state. 1965 requirements here in Arizona.

It's hot as hell, esp. with the holes filled. I like clear marker llids as well. I'm thinking about no side vents as wellbut with hood louvers.

Dan,
I built my FFR kit and registered it as a kit in Seminole County, FL. The kit did not come with bumpers, just fake jack points that are a hazard. So, I did not install them. None of the officers I have encountered have had any issue with me not installing the "probes" that came with the kit.

I actually had a soccer mom roll into my Cobra parked in front of the school the FIRST day I drove my son to school. I was shocked and feared for the worse. Turns out the van hit my quick jacks and stopped
Not a scratch. Mine are staying on forever :D

I told the dmv inspectors that that was how some of the originals were sold, and in Utah the car only needs the equipment that was on it when the original was sold. That is why my 67 block only needs a pcv valve and not the rest of the emmissions stuff

If I ever paint my car again (and I'm sure I will) there will no quickjacks or holes.Once I saw Garage Freaks car I've been kicking myself for not thinking of that before paint.Oh well, next time.
