308 Euro Design Bumper
9-17-2017: Out of stock. I may or may not make more.
Update 11-2-18: I'm looking to make several more of these bumper kits. After that I may never make any more. This will take several weeks or more.
Update 11-10-18: I'm working on making 10 more of these kits. I have enough pieces to make 10 more of the aluminum grills. This is the hardest part to make in making these kits. I'm very sure I will never make any more of these kits. Once they are all sold that will be the end of these.
This is a near perfect match Euro style 308 front bumper kit for 308 kit cars
. The original Mera's
and all the 308 kits that were sold (Original Mera's were used to make the molds to produce all 308 and 328 kits) came with a somewhat unattractive front bumper. I have an original Mera and I had to have a correct looking front bumper for it. No one made it so I decided to make it myself. I choose the Euro design as it is far nicer looking than the US version which is large and bulky.
Includes all the brackets, driving lights and misc. hardware except the 308 lenses. The lens housings are included. You will need to buy reproduction 308 lenses. Rutland's sells these reproduction amber 308 lenses for around $50.00 per pair. Check eBay also. A commonly reproduced item these days. There is nothing else to buy other than the reproduction lenses. The fiberglass bumper is gel coated so it will need to be painted. Like all kit cars this is not a true bumper. It will break if bumped into.
I used to sell these bumper kits with original Carrillo marker/directional light assemblies. These original Carrillo 308 front directional light assemblies have mostly all been sold out now. I make the lens housings now but you have to buy the reproduction lenses. Reproduction 308 directional lenses are available in the aftermarket. I have the housings machined out of billet aluminum. This is a top quality kit.
Pictured below is a complete kit ready to be packed in the wood crate. The amber lenses and the grill horse are not included. All the large parts are bolted in place or wood screwed in place. Nothing is left loose.
This kit will not fit a real 308 Ferrari.
One only: Bumper with no openings for directionals:
This is the original first fiberglass bumper skin pulled from the mold to check for the fit before the mold maker added the inserts for the pockets for the directionals. Very good for an original Mera. You retain the Mera directions under the bumper. Includes everything needed. New 3 slat aluminum grill, mounting brackets etc. No driving lights. I only have this one. Once sold I will remove it from this web page. If you order and want it let me know and I will change the order from the top one to this one. $489.00 plus shipping.
Out of stock. Working on making my last batch of these.
This kit is shipped in a custom made plywood box via UPS. Shipping is determined by the weight and distance. The complete kit in this plywood box weights 52 pounds.
I do not offer free shipping.
Because I use postal flat rate boxes for heavy orders there is no program that can add the proper amount of shipping to every order. So all shipping is added manually by myself after you place your order. That is explained here: Shipping added later explanation
When you place an order the shipping amount will show $0.00. Soon after you place an order you will receive an email confirmation that shows the amount of shipping that was added to your order.
