hi ive got a very straight front bumper and was wondering what the current costs are to rechrome them I would need my overriders doing aswell anybody recently had theres done ? or as an alternative ive put a wanted bumper add in other section. cheers paul
Some years ago I had some work done by www.londonchroming.co.uk/ they are in the Old Kent Road and made a superb job but were expensive. As Resurgam says re plating the rear bumper requires a large tank, which I think they may have.
My own rear bumper was re-plated many years ago by a company who did not have a large enough tank and in some lights it is possible to see where the chrome 'joins'
i got set for my p5 and they were a perfect fit and look first class and they are good quality they came with a full set of bolts/washers etc: i went this way after getting very high quotes to re-chrome and repair a small hole of about 1.2" diameter in the rear bumper plus the center panel from the front bumper that has pitting on it. other than these blemishes the rest of the chrome on both bumpers and over riders is perfect the best price cost quoted was over a £100 more than a full set from Harrington SS bumpers delivered in 17 days
oh yes I wont bother with the Harrington bumpers as already got a brand new rear one ive sourced some rechromed outer blades and had a price to rechrome my centre piece pretty fair tbh and only 2 weeks turnaround thanks for all your help and replies paul
This beauty has just undergone a 3 year full restoration (Great Job ! ) and i fitted a full new interior in it this week. While i was doing this it was being fitted with the Harringtons bumpers, i've never seen them close up before, i must say they look good, although the rear overiders point downwards a little more than they should, but i think acceptable.

Mick, Just a thought but if the overriders point down slightly you could probably elongate the mounting holes on the outside of the overrider for the rubber to sit a cm or so higher. So to the eye it would look normal. The adjusted holes in the overrider would be hidden under the rubber when its mounted.
Yes Roy but i don't think that would work because the two mating surfaces (overider with bumper) has to be a perfect male-to-female profile-to-profile and there is only one point where that would match and doesn't really have any tollerance and a gap will appear between the bumper and overider too large for the beading to cover. But you made a good point anyway.
