brand new rear bumper chrome

Postby Brake buster » Mon Oct 29, 2018 7:23 pm

i have been fortunate enough to find and buy a brand new old stock rear bumper chrome section ,

my original was bent, so i replaced it with a slightly imperfect one , as i just couldn't live with the bent ( and rusty ) one ,

so when this popped up , i just had to pull the trigger

looking forward to fitting it

Make sure to paint it from underneath before fitting, that primer there that Jag used is an absolute garbage and will start to rust almost immediately.

Very nice find BB a bargain I hope too .... I'd be spending time with my trusty old paint brush and waxoil there and maybe do the front one as well whilst you're "at it" ditto comments from katar83 ................ ;)
