Very satisfied with W111 coupe bumpers from SG Bumpers
« on: October 12, 2015, 03:03:15 »
I wanted to share with the forum my satisfaction with the new bumpers I bought from SG Bumpers for my 1963 220seb coupe. The bumpers are magnificent.
Highly recommended and far less than what rechroming would have been on restoring the originals.
Thank you Joni at SG for your great customer service as well.

Peter,

If they do Pagoda bumpers as well I suggest you add a recommendation in the Vendor experiences area of the Forum as well for others to see/ look up for possible future purchases.

Peter,

Looks great and so does your car. Love the color combination. Are these stainless or actual chrome on steel? How was the fit? I will be doing the exterior chrome on mine soon enough and would be good to have in my back pocket.

Wallace,
The fit is great. The bumpers are polished stainless steel and the back sides are painted tan which I believe is how they were originally. There is no way to have the originals re-chromed for a similar price. I bought them directly from SG in Vietnam. Unbelievable product for the price paid.
Yes my 220seb is really coming along. Lots of time thought and money in the car.
