Do you think if you ordered off the website he provided you could get the bumper?

Haven´t tried them as I´m in Sweden and here we can buy any oem part regardless of which market it was intended for. We just provide the partnumber.
The partnumber 52119-20926 is right, I´ve bought one using it. 52119-20929 is German spec which I think uses a different numberplate holder. There are also 52119-20928 with headlamp cleaner and 52119-20930 for German with headlamp cleaner.

I dont think so, since they still have to get it from Toyota and Toyota can choose not to release the bumper so you wont get it. Because the bumpers are in a Toyota warehouse in California.

Just talked to my local Toyota there is one bumper cover left for 248.11 part number 52119-20926 and 4 crash bars left at 268 something part number 52021-20210. The bumper had a d after it stating they will be discontinued, I'd advise to order the last bumper I almost did just so I could say I got the last one.

Does anyone have a contact in japan, maybe we should just try to get a container from there, I'd be down to look into that if someone has a source that they can actually trust, they would have to shove an st205 or a skyline in there for me though.

If you're trying to get JDM parts in the states try someone like Lithia instead of your local dealer.

I talked to Lithia on celicatech they said they have been unable to get them for over a year. I did order the last one in the country from my local dealer, I've already paid and everything lets just hope it goes through. There are still crash bars but for what they want for them and the fact that it is pretty much just an extra mounting poit for the bumper makes me want to make my own, as far as the groupbuy goes if we can get 15-20 people and people don't mind getting their stuff by greyhound, I still think that will be a good deal, I'll take pictures of the oem bumper next to my gr4-racing bumper if it's ok with the new owner.

I would be interested in a CS bumper and a set of ST185 fenders.

Good luck with all that. I used to deal these parts for Paul.....he takes forever to ship anything....if parts get shipped at all. Last time I ordered (4+ years ago) and set up a group buy he didn't have everything in stock. He waited until I placed the order to produce all of the parts. Lot's of people cancelled after months of waiting. It was a disaster. Members beware.....

I was one of the ones who actually got their bumper I was in contact with you a lot, you were awesome. I wasn't worried about the wait when we ordered but since you where so good to work with I value your opinion a lot, and may not go through with this, especially because I'm not expecting any financial gain, I don't want people mad at me because of quality and time that I cannot control. Do you have any sources here that you could recommend for making a replica, maybe even out of abs?
