Front bumpers

Post by chris » Wed Sep 11, 2019 11:28 am

Hello all,

I have looked into getting a company to make front bumpers, they would like to make a total of 50. Are people interested and I have a rough cost of £300 and they will be in polished stainless steel.

Cheers

Worth talking to Graham Walker, QRG and the RSSOC first?

As 5s rear SS bumpers can be used for the Coupe as well it seems to be a good idea if they can make them for the Coupe also..

Full sets available from Graham Walker or direct from China (the same product but not the same price :wink: )
I'm sure they are on my site somewhere but there is so much now that I can't find them ...

When I looked into having bumpers made it was a company called Harrington in Vietnam I was discussing it with . They needed a perfect front bumper to copy .

Harrington, that rings a bell (and Vietnam is quite near China :roll: )
They apparently found a set to copy ...

I would be interested, Chris. I will be requiring new front and back bumpers in a year's time and was budgeting for £700 from Harrington.
