    Cool

    my grill getting naked........





    vanner porn........LOL

    I am still looking for a nice set of chrome bumpers.
    I would be willing to trade my smoothed out setand some cash for a nice chrome set.

    John E Mail me your contact information.
    I really would like to find somebody local or with in driving range.
    Thanks to the tree huggers we lost most of the chrome shops we had around here.
    I might even go with a powder cooat.I have a couple of parts on my late model I can use to experiment with.
    The front of the grill is in great shape so all I will have to really work is where I put my mounting studs.

    Joe,
    Check with the guy selling the stainless mirror off the red late model sportvan for chrome bumpers. They look decent in the photos and he told me he wants $65 each plus shipping. Thanks. vp

    Good point Joe. Sometimes elbow grease can make a world of difference though. Also, thought the price ($65) was fair especially for the rear bumper. Thanks. vp

    Cool

    I agree,those bumpers need more than elbow grease,
    Straightening a twisted bumper like that one is pretty hard with out killing the chrome plating......
    The picture was not all that good but the rear one did not look too much better......

    Just trying to help out. Thought $65 was a fair price for a bumper. What is a core charge on these bumpers nowadays? Thanks. vp

    Cool

    I don't really know what the "core"charges are.
    Due to all of the plastic bumper covers the companies that used to deal with chrome bumpers have all but disappeared....
