I've got an early rear that's kinda rough. Can I send you big pics and get your opinion if it meets the criteria?

I sent mine in a cardboard box to a place in TN and it was around $85. They don’t weigh much but you will get a surcharge for an oversized box.

This is a great deal on repairing and rechroming bumpers. I’m paying $475 each plus shipping for mine.

I’ve found the easiest way is to go to a ski shop, get a snowboard box and ask them if they will ship for you. Should be $30-40 depending on location.

Except for a ski shop, I have not been able to find an off the shelf box that works. Most of the shipping companies like fedex only have 4’ boxes.

Since I’m shipping Dion’s and mine, I will buy 4 or 5 heavy duty medium boxes at Lowe’s or Home Depot, slide the open boxes into each other to make a long box and tape them together. I should be able to get all 4 bumpers in.

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.

Philip


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

Oscar

will do

Thanks to everyone that replied about shipping. But I wonder if the local Dicks would carry snowboards in middle of Texas. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/huh.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)
I wonder if I can just wrap it up in bubble wrap and heavy wrapping paper ? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

That used to work at Fedex but not any more.

You could probably make a box with some boxes from a bike shop. They generate a lot of cardboard so they are usually happy to give the boxes away.

Go dumpster diving at a bicycle shop. Standard bike boxes are 8 x 26 x 54-56 inches.
Front and rear bumpers will fit in one box. The box can be cut down in height. Check the shipping rates with USPS and Fedex. Might be cheaper to pack fronts in a different box. The fronts are about 12" deep and can hit the ballooned rate. I have shipped a rear bumper over seas but the front is over the 130 total length and girth limit of USPS.

i have been using UPS ground for both the last 2 bumper shipping i did and the 993 seats i sold which got packed into a Home Depot 48" wardrobe box, both were cheaper than fedex.
My bumper that shipped from SC to TN was $50(a front one) they charged me the same $50 to ship back. The bumper i just sold to a member here in Mexico was $117 base but $180 total due to extra fees, but that was boxed up with extra padding , ended up right at 25# total. I expect to pay between $50-70 to ship to CA from SC. depends on the valuation but its only like an extra $1 per hundred for insurance , at least with UPS ground. Could save an extra 15% or so by having an account too.

Where do we ship these to Oscar?

As stated in another thread here recently, if you go Fedex open an account, it will be cheaper.

Oscar,
I have a front and rear bumper packaged and ready to go, just need the shipping address.
I ended up making my own box, it ain't pretty but it will work.

Hey Oscar, I'll take 2 of the rears and have them refinished. Are there any fronts that I can buy?

In total I would like 2sets.

Let me know and thanks for putting this together.

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

I can handle logistics, he wants $100/ea

Let me know,

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

Cool...I'll get you two rears @ $100/ea + $350/ea to like new condition.

I currently don't have any fronts, but if you find them local to me I'll pick them up.

I'll PM you later tonight.
