Welp, I'm bidding on some lights. Hopefully I can straighten the bumpers out enough to drive it without it looking TOO bad. I know it won't look good, but as long as it's not horrible... I'll deal.

Paul - Newton Road, not even 2 miles from my house. Somewhere around 4127'18.30" N, 7542'55.46" W if you have Google Earth. That's where it started.

If it helps, how about this. I have a new rear bumper for mine to replace the current one, see attached. The bumper is not great but the overriders are. Would it help if I donated these to the cause? How much would it cost to ship a bumper to 4127'18.30" N, 7542'55.46" anyhow?

Yikes! A hood latch is $125. Anyone have (or know where I can find) a used one?

One end or t'other

AHA! Now it makes sense! TRUNK latch. I was wondering how a rear-end collision ruined your hood latch.

Ooops!

I guess I should look at the picture before I post. That is indeed a hood latch. Now I am back to wondering how a rear-ender broke the hood/bonnet latch? Inquiring minds want to know.

bumpers

Tom,
A guy in Tidewater Virginia offered you 108 bumpers, as well as a front subassembly, if needed; quite a while ago, but apparently you never answered.
PM me if you're still looking.
Stan

here it is, It looks like it may have had a bang up in its day but it is fully functional, there is a small hairline crack in the base, but the screws fully support it. you can have it for shipping, I figure $4.25-$5
Just PM me if interested
