I've had the Bullitt since Sep. 7, 2001. Good thing niether of these cars ever see rain. The build sheet looks pretty good for having over 6000 miles on it.

Good deal 68DARKHORSE! The build sheet is a
primo piece of Bullitt history. Had to take
the WHOLE rear bumper cover off to get mine
out intact with no rips. Hope you had it
better! :smile:

Wow! PY, that is a lot of work. Glad you got the Build sheet out too. Mine came out with a small bite out of the bottom, which shouldn't matter. I had it laminated as it was pretty brittle after spending a few months under the car.

i just looked at mine, what sould i do? it is very dry and appears that it has been soaked with water. i tryed gently pulling it out and i am afraid to rip it. i have 4500 miles so its not too long until my next oil change, should i wait until then and have them remove the bumper cover so i can get it?

bullitt890, you could take the bumper off yourself and get the build sheet. The shop could do it too to save you the hassle but then there are the labor costs. It took me about 30 min. to get the bumper off and I am no mechanic...it was fun. (lots of bolts and fasteners, cool!)

Mine came out the same way, like it was torn of the printer and just a little of the bottom edge is missing. It was barly tacked on with a piece of tape a the bottom. What really keeps them on the car is that they are between the metal bumper and the styrofoam that supports the bumper cover. I stuck my arm up between the bumper and gas tank. I could barly reach it with my finger tips. But, it came out in one piece.

Congrats 68DARKHORSE,

I was very happy mine came out intact, and mine HAD been in the rain. In fact, it started pouring while I was under the car!
Made my WHOLE day when it came out!
Mine was taped in two places, top and bottom, it's a good thing I was going very slowly and carefully.

Hey Bulittt, when you laminated the build
sheet did it take out all the wrinkles? I
am thinking of laminating it for that very
reason. :nerd: :nerd: :nerd:

Actually the lamination didn't come out all that smooth. You can feel and see the wrinkles (has a pebble feel to it) but I was concerned more about preserving it so it wouldn't fall apart on me. What I started with wasn't all that smooth either. I was pleased with the results but it would have been better had I got it out earlier.

Thanks Bulittt, my build sheet is fairly
wrinkled too, it has flattened out quite
a bit since placing it in an acid free clear
plastic sleeve. Still debating the lamination.
Thanks for the information! :smile:

I'm thinking of pulling my build sheet. It's been garaged since new but I was concerned about screwing up the fasteners. Should I first get new ones to replace these plastic ones that might get marked up with the removal? Any other parts I might need? I don't want anyone to know I pulled or lifted the bumper cover off (in order to reach up & pull the build sheet)? Thanks for all replies! Donn

Getting new fasteners is a good idea cuz they usually don't fit as tight when reused. They hold the cover looser and show rub marks from the cover moving back and forth as you drive.

I have felt around in the space between the trunk box and the bumper tube and have not felt any paper. Is the 8-1/2 x 11 build sheet folded into a smaller package?

I don't want to take the rear bumper cover off and still not find the sheet. I understand that some cars just don't have them. Is this true?

Any other treasure hunting tips would be appreciated.

On mine I found a little masking tape on the bottom of the bumper. On the top side I could barely get it with my fingertips.

Yes, some cars won't have them since they have fallen out already. I have seen some on other Bullitts literally hanging by the tape.

Another thing you may find interesting is finding the second hologram. It is identicle to the one on the shock tower. It is located on the backseat riser under the carpet. The backseat lower bench needs to be popped out to get to the hologram. Have fun
