Will 1976-81 firebird rear bumpers fit my '75 without trouble?

I was looking over my '75 formula today, and noticed my little rubber bumpers were getting pretty worn out. I always thought they were ugly anyways, so I got to thinking, maybe a rear bumper from a later second gen would work just fine. I'm pretty sure theyre interchangeable, but I wanted to know for sure.

Another thing, my front bumpers pretty worn out too... My uncle has the front bumper from a '75 Camaro, and I was wondering if it would fit my car without much trouble... A solid metal bumper painted to match the body seems like it could turn out quite nice.

I put a 81 bumper on a 78 with no trouble. The tail lights are a different story. The quarters are the same and the bumpers line up. The tail lights may or may not. I chose to change my tails for a newer look. But it was 15 years ago.
