Congratulations Rob, was it this car?
I bought replica rear lights which are still available on ebay (see https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402752065161 ) .They needed bulb holders but I had some Toyota MR2 ones left over from my F355 replica build so I used those ( I also need shorter bulbs as the longer ones fouled the plastic lens).
I also bought chrome rings on ebay but these donít appear to still be available.
Both of the above can be bought from Superformance but are a bit more expensive (see http://www.superformance.co.uk/246/lights.html)
Some people use Opel GT (1969 to 1973) rear lights which are similar to the Dino ones but they are pretty rare these days.

Superformance are also pretty competitive price wise for badges (http://www.superformance.co.uk/246/badges.html) Front Dino badges can also be found on ebay (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333632525...8AAOSwobpgFA5p)
Like you I bought a project car, a Classic replicas kit, it came with the pictured bumper fixings which bolt through holes in the underside of the bumper and on to the chassis.

I also have a set of rear bumpers which have welded fixing points for mounts which resemble those of the original Dino and a picture Iíve found of the original Dino mounting brackets.

All the best
Neil
