Hope you do a group buy and maybe prop up interest with a good pricing when you are certain that fitment is all good.

Do you have a side skirt and rear bumper that looks like that of the Auto Couture or Shine kit in fiberglass if you are not doing them in poly that can be bundled with this front bumper ?
Thanks Gerrb! we specialize in urethane products, and so do not offer any fiberglass parts. We are looking into doing a full urethane kit for the SC, however due to the high cost of molds we decided to test the market with the front bumper only. If this sale goes well then we will absolutely look to make matching sides and rears.

Would love to be in this group buy as well. But just one quick question to you guys and others if they know it. The bumper seems to be white so do you guys know how much it'll cost to paint it black or if you guys can make it come in a black color.

Hi Lexii,

The plug (what you see in the image) is white, however all parts will come in a glossy black finish.

Here's an example of what the parts look like:




Note: the part does not come painted, the material used is a black semi-glossy urethane.

Alright thanks that's all I needed to know. Don't want to buy a white bumper for a black car If I don't have money to paint it. Count me in the group buy then.

Perfect! if you could head on over to the GB thread and specify if you'd like the bumper with or without the crossbar that would be awesome. The link is in my sig .

Sorry noob question. What is the crossbar. Is it for reinforcement.

No worries at all. The crossbar is the + looking thing in the center of the bottom opening on the bumper.

Some images i found scouring the forum:

WITH crossbar:

Are there mounting points for this at the corners near the tires?
Has the test car been driven around at speed and observed to make sure there isn't any noticeable sag?
