Hen's teeth I'm afraid, you might get lucky though, there are moulds available to make GRP versions from I believe

Is it in good condition? I have a metal 5 rear bumper that I would swap for a GRP coupe front - or a metal coupe front bumper that I may part exchange for a really good GRP bumper - need to double check the condition of my coupe bumper first though?

When Jim says cut down rear se5 / 5a he meant it needs cutting down as in the centre, fitting to correct angles, welding back together, then cutting off the ends to right length and angle then rechrome or paint of your choice

Still looking for a bumper, have a pair of rear quarterlights, plus a front grill, and full bare dashboard, all came with Geoff`s car, and could swop/cash for a bumper? cheers Peter.
