Rear bumper???

Postby Bean » 03 Aug 2007, 00:02

Has anybody come across or got any pics of a rear bumper to match in with the kit thats on my Chevette?
The rear end looks to naked and i dont fancy putting a chrome bumper on

I've had a search on Google Images and can't find anything to tie in.
HSR does'nt look right and HS (correct me if i'm wrong i'm new to Chevettes :oops: ) was chrome

Am just sorting out the move to South Wales and should be sorted by the 15th of August. Email me then and I will be able to sort some out for you if interested.

You know with some careful cutting I could easily make a couple of those quarter bumpers out of one of my bent old rear bumpers :D

Don't even need to worry about the chrome if painting......

I think a cut down manta one will look good.

I had in mind a plastic one from a gemini. I'm not sure how you'd get one though. They are only here, japan and australia.

cut down manta does indeed look good. the red incarnation of my rally car had one, i'll see if i can find a picture and link it. the white one may or may not get it fitted, i quite like it without. biggest issue was hiding the join.

i made some qrtr bumpers for my escort out of the old chrome full width job, and very good they looked too. one just had to be careful not to remove lumps of leg or arm on the sharp corners (one could always do a proper job rather than just take the burrs off)
