bumper piping stripes

Post by Tim2cv » Tue Oct 25, 2005 6:30 pm

Hey,

Are these still avaliable? I have a 16v with red stripes but trying to remove them of course they broke. I was being careful too after the warnings id been given! I have 1 bumper (still on the car) left with a stripe intact. If I break this one then what!?

Cheers

Didnt know that! And they do it to look the same ish as the one I have just pulled out? Must have a look, and get some oil... and some more speakers for the 2CV.

If it`s the same colour as the window surrounds I think it`s called Rover Tempest grey but best to check first!
