Front Bumper Over Riders

Post by adamwilkes » Sat Aug 22, 2020 10:05 pm

Over-riders are bolted to a bracket which runs through the front of the body just inside the bumpers. The other end of the bracket bolts to the underside of the front body support steel-work. The bolt heads 'hook' into the back of the over-rider and then tighten onto the brackets. Over-riders are not joined to the bumpers.

Scimitar with over-riders:

Many thanks all, been offline a bit... I’ve got mine off... One was easy to unbolt from the cross member, one a total shocker, no idea how they attached it. Got a bit wrecked.

So basically Jim it’s escort Mk 1 rear, is that for front and back on the Scim.

Are you also saying Erik they are used on Reliant Robins too... anyone know of the sources for either

I have do decide if to re Chrome or replace... As part of my Resto on my 72 Se5a

There aren’t any rear overriders on a Scimitar?

It's still a few months away, but once I fit the Harrington set my over-riders will be available, for a reasonable price, should anyone want them. They're not perfect, but perhaps good enough for someone.

for £180
Is that NOS ??
What are the GRP ones like??.
I have a few sets in reasonable condition.
Just checked and your buying the wrong items.
The Chrome Scimitar bumpers are Ford Consul, NOT ESCORT.
It`s the OVERRIDERS that are Escort.
