Bumper Loan


Anyone in the US have a set of bumpers I could borrow to make a mold?

I have a set from a Warwick. Don't think they are the same as a Peerless phase  1 or 2.

They will work but might be different. Can send pictures if you want.

Another one. This one in Virginia.

Steve,

Art and I are missing the front bumpers for #92. Perhaps we can defray some expenses if we could get a pair?

#155 is missing all 4. Will not need them for a while but would be interested in a set of all 4.

Great thread.  Number 213 is also missing a full set.   I have Warwick bumpers, but the Peerless bumpers are thinner/smaller in front and don't turn up in the rear.

I would be happy to pitch in on a remolded set, or borrow an original set and make a few for the folks on the list.  Either way works for me.

I am in Southern California.

OK Dean. Now I am jealous. That is one skill I have no experience with. Did you make the mold? Looks awesome.

Dean,

Wow! That is a clean looking nose piece. #92 has a pretty significant crack on the left side in the nose that Art and I are going to have to do something with. Otherwise the glass is in pretty good shape. I hope we can get started on it this winter!

 Kent,

Let me know if you need a section of the nose.  I would be happy to reuse the mold.  It is indeed a faithful reproduction of the dimensionally challenged front end.

I am in Colorado.  

I have a sculptor friend who is willing to help fashion a mold without damaging anything.    We could see how it goes and if we can design a mold that stands up we could fashion several sets.

I have a good set of rears (much simpler design).  My fronts are presently some hand made metal chrome attempts.  

Could you contact me when you get back in July?  If it works out I can update everyone as to how it goes.  

Steve - try my cell 303-817-7466

Dean,

I will let Art know and the next time we are together we will thoroughly inspect that nose section...

Dave's front bumpers have arrived.  Thank you Dave.  

My sculptor friend  and I are now in the stage of discussing the 1,400 ways we can make a mold.  We are down to 1399. 

Plan is to do a initial sculptor's rubber layer then fiberglass for rigidity probably set in a box with foam.   We are discussing using initial layers of carbon fiber backed up with fiberglass for actual bumpers.  

Plan is to just make fronts since I have good rears already.  

I will get my set made and then have an idea of material costs to make a set for those interested.

Those interested in a set of fronts should call me to discuss timing and costs.
