308 Bumpers Fitted

Caught sight of this on FB being broken (shame), thought the upgrade with the wheels and bumpers looked really good.

I saw the same post, I agree, she does look good. The wheels are 18" flute's (came off an XK8), they really suit the car. BrakeBuster has them on his XJS, they look really good on that!

“It’s worth more in Parts, mate”.
So another one bites the dust it’s seems.

To summarise- Until more people want to start welding and saving these cars, then this decline will continue indefinitely.

The flute wheels were not included in the sale of the car either.

Custom bracketry for sure.
It would be nice if it had been documented for others to see.

I really like that! Food for thought if I can't get my bumpers straight.
