The holes on my rear bumperette are round (verses the square holes I have seen on other bumperettes).

All the rubber cushions I have seen have the square plug mounting point.

Has anyone found a rubber cushion with a round plug?

Thanks,

That is because you appear to have 320 bumperettes on your 520, but from that photo I cannot tell for sure.

That is too close a photo to see which bumperette it is for sure.

OK, they appear to be 520/521 bumperettes, but like all this early stuff maybe they used the 320 bump stops on them till they ran out of them, I have never seen that before.

I don't have any photos of my 320 bumperette bump stops.

320 bumperettes are a little smaller.  The 65 66 520 bumperettes take the same rubber bumper as the 320 bumperettes.  The 65 66 520 bumperette brackets are flat the later 620 & 521 brackets are curved to get under the bigger tail lights.
