went to the junkyard, i originally wanted an SER bumper....but the yard didnt have any, so i settled for the one w/o a spoiler. i put money down on it yesterday, and picked it up today. also got the wheel.




it also came with the lights...verrrrrry cool. i cant wait to put it on, but i gotta bend the frame back.....going from unpainted to painted should be a big difference :cool:

Is there any difference between SE-R bumper and E,XE,GXE bumpers?
What I know is the junkyard would sell spoiler itself,but not with the bumper...

$20 for the wheel.
$100 for the bumper COVER, STYROFOAM, and IMPACT BAR.

i *need* these parts, so i was willing to pay the premium....unfortunate for me.....but hey, theres only so much i can do.

Does sound kind of steep...I got a wheel with an almost new tire on it for about $12. But you're right, you found the parts you need in one place and sometimes you can't put a price on time saved... :thumbup: Good luck, hope it all turns out well.

You can do more man, always. Damn I thought I was paying premium for a 88 escort GT bumper to mould into my Pony... paid $75 too.

Nobody NEEDS a bumper enough to pay $120 USD for! What did you NEED it for? I've rolled around with a hanging bumper for weeks before finding the right one for a good price. I understand you needing a glass or a destroyed headlamp/tail lamp what have you... but shit there's a huge dent in the bottom panel of my pass. door. Im gonna wait for a $45 parts day and get a whole new door and a few other things (frame sections)

They go for as low as $75 on car-part.com w/o spoiler and $50 for one SER with spoiler (a few scuffs, nothing a tiny bit of glazing putty and filling primer can't take care of)

I dunno i'd not pay $120 for a bumper for a 12 year old car.
