Did a boneheaded thing and bend the rear section of my early rear bumper.  This is the small bumper WITHOUT the rubber strip.  I think its a pre 1971 bumper.  W&N list a rear section for the rear with the holes for the rubber strip but not an early one.  Anyone got an idea of where I can get an early one?  I THINK its BMW 51121801250.  Thats probably the US version...I'd actucally prefer the Euro version with the cutouts for the lights in the bumper.

AFAIK they, along with the later US chrome rear bumper center sections (with holes for rubber strips), are NLA from BMW.  Tried to source one for my '73 back in June; no luck.  Euro only, with the license plate light cutouts. If that's what you seek, I think they are available.  Ask Steve at BluntTech.


I sent my rather badly bent bumper off to Knox Chrome in Knoxville TN; three weeks later it came back looking better than new--$300--about what a new one would cost--if it was available.  Look 'em up on line; they have a web site.  IIRC it's knoxchrome.com...
