hello, everyone... so, the title says it all. i am trying to locate a front all chrome bumper (no bumper guard) for a 1984 dodge b250. my mechanic is trying to find a replacement before just going ahead and having it fixed and rechromed. i figured the odds of finding one is unlikely, but i wanted to see if anyone on here could steer me in a good direction. "thanks" in advance!
p.s. yes, i am ticked off. that was the original bumper in MINT condition... *ugh*
wow, thanks alot. i know there used to be a guy in my town that did rechroming, so not sure who my mechanic has in mind. but, bumperboyz would be a great place to at least call and ask what they have in stock. i will pass the info on to my mechanic. thanks again!
you're not kidding.. .i was mentally preparing to put a "for sale" sign on it because i refuse to drive it around with a busted bumper. the local hot-rodders actually respect my van, so i wasn't prepared to get laughed out of town now. ha
no joke. . .let's face it: most external van parts are composed of at least a tiny fraction of unobtainium. Bumperboyz in LA were out-of-stock. my mechanic finally threw in the towel and sent the bumper to a guy in my town who fixes and re-chromes them. hopefully, he knows what he is doing
My new truck got hit when it was three weeks old... Pushed in the rear bumper some and that's about it... Their insurance wouldn't pay to replace the bent pieces, they only paid for repair... The chrome pieces came back looking better than new. The re-chrome was fantastic.
