Rubber bumper end bits?

I'm in the process of working on the body and had to remove the bumper and rubber end bits. Those big rubber bits have untreated steel that hold them to the car.

Ive searched and can't find anything about what these end rubber bits are called, and if I can just buy the metal bracket that goes inside of them that then screws onto the car, the rubber part is in excellent condition, the metal bracket barely held it against the car.

I need to replace all the brackets for all four corners, they're all rotted out, and did a nice job of taking some body with them.

You can get the bracket at the dealer I guess - but try asking fastlane - perhaps they can help. Make sure you get the correct bits for the type of bumper you've got. The Euro ones are shorter than some of the American ones for example...

I've tried fastlane and the other stores online, can't seem to get a part number. Anybody got a part number?

I can get you a part number for a euro one - but that might not help. What have you got on your car?

If you don't know post a picture please.

Have you checked any junkyards? Not sure if they would have them but it would save you some money.

In Michigan there isn't going to be a single used bracket that isn't rusted to hell. I figure that I'll get new ones and then treat them myself with either rust bullet or rustoleum. Rust from the brackets is one of the big things that put rot holes into the sides of the car that I'm now in the process of patching, I'd like to keep the same thing from happening again if possible.

I convinced a CA member to send me some out of a yard out there, and did exactly this, painted and sealed them.

I also spaced out the bracket further from the bumper, It looked no different, but I got it 1/4 an inch away from the fender with some rubber spacers to hopefully stop the chronic rust right there.

I STRONGLY recommend getting a small starter kit of POR-15 black and PROPERLY treating the metal with it.
the marine cleaner removes packing/usage oils, and the metal ready treats the metal and etches the surface for best adhesion of the treatment, it also leaves a zinc coating on the metal. then the POR-15 sealant INDESTRUCTIBLY seals the part!
only about 30.00 for the starter kit, and it's PLENTY to cover many of those ends.
