no even we have a decent front chrome bumper here Phil although we have over 250 used rears. Have you tried Parts Heaven? They are usually good about having rust free california used 914 parts, or rich at high performance house? THEN even if they have one that can be fixed, the bumper shop also in california can rechrome.

We were so without the front chrome bumpers that we had them made and took great pains to fit them until we had a perfect buck to form. They are stainless steel but look like chrome

George,

thanks for the response- i considered the Ss ones but it just wasnt in the budget right now with getting all the body work and paint done , my restoration budget is tight, so i have to set priorities with out cutting corners. I would like a set, but it will have to wait a year or two. freshening up the motor with new tin and runners, etc so i will be placing an order for some seals etc- including motor mount hardware.
if a front bumper pops up let me know -

- i might settle for a nice steel one for now.

They are really hard to find...

Been looking for one for years. Had a line on a great one, but the seller wouldn't sell to me—as he wanted it to go to a restoration rather than my conversion.

I've even thought about going stainless, but only if they really match the originals in all details and the early rear can be had in stainless, too. I'm not yet convinced...
