    Well guys, despite some opposition and due to my limited budget I
    installed that bumper from 1977 244 DL to my 1988 245DL and now I wish I
    took the matching front one as well, but it's too late it's gone to some
    boneyard. The best price I came up with locally for a used bumper with
    bump struts was about $300.00 I paid $50.00 which included both front
    seats and as gas cap which doesn't fit my car at all, Oh well. So now I
    will look for a matching aluminum front bumper, assuming that will fit????
    It just goes to show you never know what you can do, til you try it.
    So I have one good bumper strut to get rid of, and the black bumper
    cover from 1988 245 DL


    not the from address it's bogus for a reason

    Ouch! Where are you? I can get the bumpers with shocks for $20 at one of
    several yards in the Seattle area, the old aluminum ones turn up fairly
    frequently. Shipping would likely be rather pricey though.

    The trouble here is there are not many available here and one guy has
    almost all the good ones left here in Southern Ontario - Hamilton Garage
    in Guelph oodles of good wrecks and he knows no one has as many as he
    does so he jacks up prices. I need a tailgate navy blue and as said in
    an earlier post a guy said he had one and also rear pass door and he was
    from Utica or Ithica NY , but suddenly dropped outa sight when I said
    I'd rather come there and see for myself what he had rather than have
    stuff shipped and obviously paid for in advance.

    The next time I'm passing tru there I'd like it if I could browse the
    u-pulls in Seattle, but not much chance of me passing tru I'm afraid.

    Watch out for that guy in NY...His tactics are well known, if it's the same
    guy 'm thinking of. He's got alot of money from people and has never sent
    the goods. Count yourself lucky that he "suddenly dropped outta sight"
    BEFORE you sent money.

    Thanks, I figured something was up, guy sent pictures then got pushy
    about wanting to skid it and send it, not to mention his prices were way
    out of wack with what I can get right here at home. I replied with fact
    I would come and get it and all email stopped at his end! I knew this
    was a scam.
    These pricks will use internet and news groups for fraud because it's
    hard to track them down.
