Can you still buy RC Bumpers?

Postby msanders2 » Sun Oct 06, 2013 11:09 pm

Haven't been looking for parts for my Alltrac in a long time being stationed in Alaska and my car in Georgia. Now i'm back and back on the hunt! Ive been searching and cant find anyone who still sells the RC bumpers and Hoods. Not even the Toyota Dealership I used to work at can get them. I searched on 1sttoyotaparts and it says they wont ship bumpers or hoods. Any help would be great. Thanks

Go to the polish guy for the bumper and get a carbon fiber hood for roughly the same price as an original CS hood.

How is the quality on the fiberglass ones? And where can you find the bumper support. Also it says no shipping to USA.

If your talking about Andrew, countyboy3188 on mr2oc then yup that's me. His build is a slow one he likes to spend his money on random stuff.

Bumping this up because I'm still looking. Amayama says they can't get them either. I know there is one for sale right now in the for sale section but I'm not 100% ready to buy right now. But I'm looking for a source to get one when the time comes.

I checked with the national toyota parts distributor and apparently there are no RC bonnets or bumpers in Japan as they are discontinued.
Easiest place to buy is from Paul at gt4-racing.eu or from the gt4oc.net club in the UK

I'm not sure if we could get an ok to do so somehow, but I have one of the fiberglass replicas from the group buy from about 4-5 years ago that I still have not mounted. I plan to mount it when I go front mount, but if someone got the ok to make a mold from it, I would let them use the bumper.

Also I'll build my own "crash" bar, probably out of mild steel for ease of welding, I have not ponied up to a tig welder yet but if people buy parts off my 165 I'll get one sooner

crash bars are discontinued as well. May pay to build a jig to build up some

Some people have modified the standard crash bar to hide behind an RC skin, that may be an easier option

The GT4-Racing.eu guy wont ship to USA. How good of quality are the fiberglass ones? Ideally I want the OEM but if its a good quality replica I wouldnt mind Fiberglass, as long as you could mount the Grills in it. Crash Bar would be easy to make or cut up USDM one. Ive had 4-5 opportunities to buy OEM ones in the past and now im kicking my self in the ass for not doing it. I could have got the whole front end from the Toyota Dealership I worked at back in 08. Hind sight 20/20 I guess.

Mine is from the gr4-racing guy and the quality is really good I'll see if I can get some pics when I'm in the garage, and I'm not sure how copyright laws work but if you just had one made off of mine and I didn't charge anything (which I'm willing to do) then no profit was made so I'm not sure if that's ok or not. Just as long as you didn't turn around and make a whole bunch.
