    Replica bumpers etc....

    Being as I'm about to start having more time on my hands again(hooray), I'm considering starting doing the fibreglass stuff again. Rather than just churning them out and hoping somebody's going to buy them from me I thought I'd ask this time.
    What's worth doing?, bearing in mind I have to be able to take/make a mould first. I'm quite willing to start doing the 850/T5R front lower bumpers as they sold quite well before,and I'm also considering some headlight eyebrows if theres enough interest. Can anybody think of anything else they want?.

    Before anybody asks the Evolve'esk front bumper for the V70 will be the first thing I finish and start selling(photos available of the mockup).

    plastic

    what about a headlight cover that has 2 round holes in it so it would look like twin head lights,like a lense cover but in wot ever colour ur car is,with 2 holes,either same size or 1 large light hole & a smaller one over the main beam section,i know it wld be a bit tricky with light patern but they cld be for day use etc etc.

    bit tacky if you ask me, just look at the likes of the RGM gear the chavs glue to their nova's etc.

    I'm after a front lower bumper T5R style too. Could you do painted also? I'm currently evaluating the Volvo part costs... when I hear both I'll decide

    well, i would like to vouch for the quality of tomcats work, for those who dont know, it is very good quality. I had one of his front bumpers (r style) on my previous s70 and it looked spot-on!

    T5R lower bumper's are going to be 120, I used to do them for less but the with the amount of time it took to make them it just wasn't worth the effort.

    As others have said it wouldn't look right, also it would be just as easy to buy some standard headlight covers, cut some holes in em and paint them.

    Same here. All depends on its spec, full, spoiler, how does it mount etc.

    The V70R one is a full bumper, direct replacement for the original one.

    Resurrect & brush off the dust from that evolve type bumper for the V70 that you was doing for me, should be a good market for them

    I have a 2.5 850 saloon in Olive Green just now , very tidy and a T5R bumper would be just the ticket so if any come out , fire on my way ( painted too would be good)
