    GT Bumper needed

    The shipper that took my car from AZ to WI managed to crunch the front bumper. Does anyone have a good replacement or know where to get one? I know OGTS and others have the stainless steel set, but I'm just looking for the front at this point.

    Splendid Parts sells just the front. I hope you're sticking the shipper with the bill. It's their fault.

    I would check with OGTS. They would probably sell a single bumper.

    Apparently I have bought Richard Buhler's (aka "rbuhler" here on OGT.com) stash of Opel parts, and I see a couple of front bumpers in the photos he sent me. He sold his very nice yellow GT (which he calls "Tweety Bird") to a lady in Thunder Bay, and is getting out of Opels. The parts are in Winnipeg Manitoba at present, and I'll pick them up and bring them back to Calgary when I drive to Manitoba at the end of May to open the cottage. If this is of interest, and you are in a rush, I can ask Richard if he can ship a bumper directly to you. I can't tell the condition for certain, but I can ask Richard to provide some additional photos.

    I need one of the front bumpers for the "Garage Find GT" (http://www.opelgt.com/forums/opel-st...t-rescued.html) that I have also arranged to purchase from John Warga (aka ftl here). Apparently I am having a mid-life crisis, and while I am still getting my own 30-year Opel GT restoration ready for final paint and re-assembly, I have also committed (which seems like a reasonable description of what my wife want to do with me!) to restore the Garage Find GT. It only has 28,00 original miles, and hasn't been on the road since 1975.

    The rest of Richard's parts will be added to the Calgary Opel'er's parts stash in John's barn just south of Calgary. Some day I'll get around to posting a list of those parts. The intent is to make the parts available to whoever needs something, at a reasonable price. Shipping is expensive to the USA and Europe, but quite reasonable within Canada.

    Here are the photos of the front bumpers, and of some of the other Winnipeg parts, if somebody sees something that they need.

    Working on the bare-metal, nut & bolt rotisserie restoration of my '71 Opel GT, and may have another GT to build next...

    Those trim rings and center caps for the rims look pretty nice.
