I have a special group discount offered but I need a few more bumpers aside from mine. Right now I have 9…need a few more.

Two members are already bringing me theirs. Anyone else?
FYI..before I send them in I pressure wash, bake, bead blast & re-tap M8 mounting holes.

Chrome shop is offering:

Option #1 Straight flash and triple chrome= $350.00/ea

Option #2 Minor dents (up to 3) and hole fill in of bumper tit holes (if requested) = $375.00/ea

Option #3 Other moderate repairs within reason, also triple chromed= $400.00/ea

That is for either Front or Rear.

I engrave a two digit number on the backside mounting bracket to ensure you get your original bumper back, I can do initials too, if requested.

I need 50% deposit.
Taking them to chrome 9/14/18 so get them here ASAP.
Please allow leadtime of 3-4 weeks, perhaps sooner
PM me for shipping address

Please remove all grills, plugs and other hardware prior to shipping in bumpers.





Oscar


PLEASE BEAR WITH ME...Chrome shop is taking a bit longer than expected!!!

Almost done with this GB (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Hi Oscar - I'm interested for a front and a rear. I need to take a look at them and assess where they stand in terms of requiring repairs. I can do that this evening.

Thanks!

Great Rob & Mark

I can cover return shipping for you two or anyone else shipping in 2 or more.

My way of paying it forward and thanking you all.

This is the first time my Chrome shop offered me such discount.
It pays to be a good customer (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer3.gif)

I am in for a front, its a bit rough but is straight, currently on my car - its the one I got from Noel, and the bumper guards from another member close to you(Nacho). I think it has some small tap spots that are under the bumper guard but no rust or major dents. If its not over $400, its a go. My last bumper was just done by a company in Tennessee and they charged $475 and it was straight with no dents, so this seems to be a good deal to me. I will have to get it in the mail to you asap,
Count me in.

Which is better to send for chrome, a bumper that needs dents knocked out or one that is pretty straight but rusty (chrome is peeling off and base metal is pitted). They are both early fronts so I don’t have other choices.


I got Dion covered.

Send me a few photos but you should be fine. Both Noel and Nacho (Master metal finisher) are friends of mine.

Send to: ovalerio23@gmail.com

Thx

Less pits, the better...typical surface rust, dents, and holes are easy. I'll hold straight re-chrome $350 for you.

Ok, I've pulled the bumpers out - front is in pretty darn good shape. The rear is going to at least need the "3 dent / 1 spot fill" add-on.

I'll send you pics, Oscar, and see if I can get the address then. Ok, I need to find a box and get these out next week (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pinch.gif)

Thanks!

I feel like I need to go buy a set of used ones so I can get in on this awesome deal. Even more so since the parts car I own has Bubs(75)

Noel has a few bumpers that qualify for Option #2.

I can handle logistics, he wants $100/ea

Let me know,

Oscar

Wow, those rears look better, most likely, than the one I just popped in the mail to you. If those are still available when mine gets there, it may make sense to use one of those! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Rears are low hanging fruit. It's finding early fronts that are the challenge.
