Default Rear bumper removal 73 Lifeliner

Sorry I posted this in general but can't access technical forum. We are attempting to remove the rear bumper from 73 lifeliner but are having issues. Is there more to do than just 6 bolts? Thanks in advance.

Remove the rear wheel house covers in the rear compartment.......there is a bolt at the top of the taillight assy which must be accessed from inside the car.

Thank you Cary. We found those, now just contending with seized rusted carriage bolt remaining and then hopefully it will be off.

Thanks again for prompt reply.

Lots and lots of rust breaker and if that doesn't work, try the gas wrench.

worke's for me. you have the option of removing the brackes from the frame or the bumper on them. if you resort to the tourch just heat one flat of the nut red hot then let it cool by it's self. usally works
