Default How do you attach your rear bumpers?

I'm using some hardware store nuts and bolts, but hoping to get something that is more secure and looks a little less "Home Depot Special"...thoughts?

Bumper? Or tail light panel? All the panels I've seen use carriage bolts through the bodywork. That gives the smooth head presented to the outside and doesn't look so "kit-car-ish". You can get them in chrome, too. Both of my old cars used 3/8" bolts if I remember right, and just 2 to hold that panel on. Alternately, just fiberglass a block of wood behind the panel and screw in a dowel hanger (screw thread one end, bolt thread the other), then you can have a "fastenerless" rear panel.
