3 piece bumpers with guards

    Recommended Posts

    Hey guys, I've got a 71 240z that's nearing the end of a restore and I'm having a hell of a time finding replacement bumpers for it and chroming is astronomical. 

    The bumper consists of a main(front) part and two sides with two guards in the center. The guards have a rubber strip, each. The two sides have rubber strips.

    There are repros available but they are not cheap. Good originals are even rarer and not cheap. Dented and bent rusted ones are plentiful.
    I sold a set this weekend for $160 US to young guy trying to restore a car. He will need to spend a few hundred to have them cleaned up and painted and many more hundred if he wants them rechromed.

    Whee! Yes. Your picture is exactly the same set/style of bumper I'm dealing with. 

    My best quote for chroming is $400/each bumper and $75 per bumper guard =$1,100.

    If you want to see the stainless steel bumpers in person, I have them on both of my cars, and I'm within a decent driving distance.

    SteveJ, where are you located?

    also, do you have a few pics of this on your car? 

    Do you sell these/is this a company you represent?

    I actually prefer the updated look with no holes or rubber, but I lucked out and found a one owner, carport kept 71 with 77k miles and I'm trying to keep it as true to form as possible.

    No, I don't sell them. I bought mine from Group Harrington.
