16 Valve Bumper Inserts

Post by bx16v » Wed Aug 08, 2018 12:38 pm

Hi all

Don't suppose anyone knows if/where I can get the red bumper inserts for a 16 valve BX by any chance.

Looking to respray the car soon and the original inserts have pretty much had it.

Thanks

Brian

I'm in discussion with a couple of plastics companies at the moment, but as this will be the third attempt in 10 years, don't get your hopes up.

Hi . I'm about to advertise a 16v front bumper. it has the red insert (and usefully, that 'cup'-shaped insert blanking off the towing thing). Obviously these bumpers are very rare, and I'm hoping for a greedy price. However I've not worked out how much to ask yet; I'm just letting you know in case you're tempted to resolve the red strip problem while insuring against future damage to your vulnerable front fender. Your reply is welcome here or to 07580 805727. Regards, Peter
