Is that a 3-piece kit?
Are you able to share with us the cost?

They do look like an excellent repro.
And very good value for money!
Are they as good quality as what you see in the pic?

Quality is good, Michel. The old ones are hardened and a bit crusty, as well as damaged. The new ones are suitable for a high-quality restoration, which is what I'm gradually implementing on the SLC.

That price is excellent. It's been a while since I have been involved in the procuration and refurbishment of the front bumper rubbers, but in my time the parts cost was significantly higher. Regards Styria
