The rising popularity of the G-body platform is at an all-time high. Among the group, the Buick Regal (and other iterations of it, think Grand National, T-Type, or GNX) are getting scooped up faster than ever before. But owning one of these ’80s legends will require that the bumper fillers be replaced at some point in time. The reason for having to replace them is because the factory GM bumper fillers dry out over time and crack. Now when the time comes to replace them, all I can tell you is that there will be a few options in the market, but only one definite winner that is produced by a So California company called SpoolFool Productions.
Made in the USA and crafted with pride and painstaking detail, it becomes clearly evident that Spool Fool bumper fillers are by far the best aftermarket fiberglass filler units we have encountered. Each of their units (both front and rear bumper fillers) offers a thick gauge construction, thus giving it much more structural rigidity. When it comes to fitment and final form, there is absolutely no comparison. The lines mate perfectly, the installation is effortless, and your body shop will love you as these bumper fillers are so precisely crafted that absolutely no bodywork is needed.
SpoolFool bumper fillers undergo such stringent quality control to emphasize that the dimensional accuracy of their products is downright insane. The fit is PERFECT, and the finish work is like glass – in turn leaving many Grand National owners mistakenly believing they received them pre-painted.
Another added bonus is SpoolFool’s one-piece design for the rear bumper filler, eliminating the unsightly split typically found beneath the license plate. And while copy cats have mimicked the style, they surely haven’t been able to do so with the same quality because these bumper fillers are works of art. Of course, these benefits come with a price, but when you consider the money you’d spend body working those inexpensive and poorly crafted bumper fillers that litter OfferUp and Craigslist—not to mention the money you’ll spend on custom paint and labor—then it becomes clearly evident that Spool Fool bumper fillers are, no question, the best game in. So remember, whatever you “save” on those cheaper bumper fillers will ultimately cost you in the long run, so do it once and do it right and get with SpoolFool.
