RC / Carlos Sainz front bumper OEM

Postby abeans » Wed May 06, 2020 10:21 pm

This is going to be a "good luck" item, but i'm still looking.

I know i can get the cheap aftermarket ones, not particularly interested in dealing with fitment issues.

Definitely some luck involved with this one! :wink: But in case you're unaware, check out the Japan Yahoo auctions for all the JDM goodness.You can use google chrome for your browser to translate the page.
https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/search/sea ... 1&b=1&n=50

That is where I found mine, and when it arrived I was surprised to find that it had the rare factory option front mount intercooler sprayer! But you definitely have to watch for it, as they even rarely make an appearance there. I usually have a few tabs open on my phone and try to check them once a day.

Also, you won't be able to place a bid yourself, as it is only for local residents of Japan. You'll have to use a 3rd party company like Jesse Streeter Corp. (https://jessestreeter.com/ordering-parts/) to place a bid and ship it to you. That's who I've used on multiple occasions, and they are SUPER reasonable with their commission. However, for a bumper be prepared to pay immensely for shipping for such a large item.

BEST OF LUCK! :D

Thanks for the reply Madrew, i'll keep an eye there as well. Was scoping out Crooober, not as much traffic there.

Unless someone else knows of a rep bumper that doesn't fit like garbage, i'll keep waiting.

Carbon fiber goodness. I haven't seen the bumper in person or in video, but if it fits as well as the videos I've watched of the doors it should be 99%.

Well other than a carbon fiber bumper being completely ridiculous. They do have a fibeglass version.... It estimates at 360$ shipped. That seems to cheap to be right for overseas. I'll message them. Thanks.

IIRC all RC's came with the sprayer from the factory but the pump isn't fully wired up.

I got one of the last OEM upper mesh pieces, the lower one and sides are long sold out. There's a European company selling replacements for the sides but they're painfully expensive. I should've gotten a complete spare assembly when they were still around, idk why I didn't :bangshead:

If I ever win the lottery I have plans to professionally make parts for these cars.
I'll let you know when it happens.









Don't hold your breath. :(

Bummer :(. I'll probably DIY it my self then. Get some mesh from mcmastercarr. It looks like some crappy unfinished ebay body kit with no mesh in there.

Especially if you haven't got the undertrays as well. Being able to see through the bumper to the ground wasn't a good look when I left them off for a while.

If you have the under trays IIRC you need the metal rails that connect them to the bumper cover too; they're also different than the regular 185 (under covers and rails).

The metal rail is part of the lower mesh piece IIRC. Annoyingly mine was missing when I got the car.

I ordered a couple parts from carbon microsystems, nothing big but overall cost with shipping wasn't bad.

Thats a interesting design... I have the alltrac plastic undertray but. if that won't work.

i'll likely make a skid plate myself, i can't justify the shipping of the one from Poland.
