Does BBT have front bumpers? I thought they only had the rear.

BBT hasn't stocked those damn bumpers for a long time. I was waiting forever, and finally gave up. Luckily, I scored a nice set of OG ones for cheap.

I do. But I'm saving them for when I restore the car someday. I just wanted something in the meantime. The ones I got are really nice, but not perfect, but at least they are OG.

Our supplier in Germany is not offering chrome bumpers right now. They were having some sort of trouble with their chrome shop and were in the process of finding another one. As soon as they get some chrome bumpers we will be able to offer them too. Unfortunately, I had no satisfactory reply when I asked if they knew when this was going to happen. I will keep you posted.

Apparently we will have chrome bumpers in stock Mid-late January. We still dont have a price though. My best guess would be somewhere around $450-$500.
We will try to keep it as low as possible.

hey guys. Just wanted to let you know I moved out of Splitsville this past weekend. It was a sad day... this was the first vw ever I didn't finish. After 2 years for hunting down parts, I decided the money would be better spent finishing all my other projects (not just cars).

This is not the first time I have moved in and then moved out from splitsville. So Im pretty sure I'll be back some day. In the meantime I'll be slumming it in BigWindowBurg with my IDA'd 2332 59 euro ragtop. Very Happy

I haven't been the most outspoken splitsville inhabitant, but I just wanted to thank everyone again for all the help and pointers along the way and over the years.

carry on.
-chris
