Has the issues with the rear bumbers been sorted and if so are they available yet? I notice "Muscle Car Parts" are selling new repro rear bumpers now. Would these be from the same supplier?
Thanks

Rare Spares are test fitting the HK rear bumper bar and have not approved them at present. They require some modifications. Discussions with the factory are still continuing and supply is not expected until late this year or early next year.

We have not received revised samples so far. the factory had to make a new tool to get it right. We will advise when they are approved and back in stock.

We have a container that was shipped this week. Hopefully the revised tool sample will be enclosed for our test fitment.

The shipment is due in our store in approximately 10 days and will take a few more days to test fit.

We finally approved the rear bumper bar after they did a new tool. The first production is on order and shipment in the next month or so. I suggest you place one on backorder with your local supply as some are reserved already. Due to the amount of polishing before plating they are not produced in great quantities each time. The factory makes many different bars so they tend to produce in batches of each type.

As suggested it is best to place one on backorder now as the first shipment of the revised ones is coming in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully they will produce the next order soon, but the factory produces a lot of product for the USA and they take preference over Australia. They don't always fill our orders as they try to fill the containers with a mixture of product.

The first despatch has arrived and expected to sell quickly. More orders have been placed but supply time is based on the factory time.

Thanks

Which is the best place to put a order for one in at? Closest to me would be Prospect NSW.

What are they retailing for?
