New guy here

Post by veedubtek » Sun Oct 13, 2013 4:02 pm

No idea how I haven't been onto this forum until today. Was hoping to find a plethora of early bumpers for sale, so you can imagine my disappointment.

Anyhoo, this is my money pit. Been on her about 2.5 years now, with no end in sight. If someone has an extra set of bumpers stashed they wanna get rid of, that'd be swell :cool:

Hey Walt, welcome to the register. Are you using those NOS headlamp frames I sold you? ;-)

As for the bumpers - shipping might be a killer - but then, you do "hate money" :-)

Salute to Mr Grande Fromage in the MK 1 world.
I've spent many hours looking at your build thread over on Vortex.

Great to see you on here sir, welcome.

Yes sir, thanks again! At least on the one side anyway...couldn't make the other work for the other side so I reconditioned it.

Yeah, I figure shipping will be ridiculous. Just lost the set on ebay.de last week and was figuring on $250/$300 shipping had I won. First set I've seen on there in over 2 years.

Thanks for the welcome :)
