Default cool body stuff

I saw a miata with this front bumper that i really like but i could not find it no matter how hard i tried. So i was just going throw some forums looking at some stuff when i came across this link. http://www.vary.co.jp/wd.html Turns out the front bumper i want is made in Japan. They also have some other very cool stuff on there website. so check it out, im going to try and get the front bump from them.

Here is the bumper


Here is something i think a lot of you track guys would like a lot.

yo bro, I don't think your link works. I clicked it and all I see are a bunch of little symbols. I don't speak Egyptian so help a bro out.

yo bro, those bumpers look like **** and if they're anything like other GV products, then they're explosive. I wouldn't bother, even if they were free and/or something I couldn't easily replicate with some aluminum sheeting and plywood.

The track crew doesn't like big one-piece clam-shell **** like that because we'll break it the first day we track it when running off track.

Step 1- Go to www.google.com
Step 2- Type in "vary.co.jp
Step 3- See that Garage Vary's site comes up in search list as the first result
Step 4- Click the "translate page" link
Step 5- Feel stupid that you didn't know that Google translates pages.

Thay're just like any other fiberglass product. Never had mine "explode" even from whacking cones at autoX at 50mph.

So everything I've read about GV lips being akin to driving around with a mirror on the front of your car has been untrue?

My Bomex bumper has held up pretty well to the couple bumps I gave it. Once I had a corvette roll into my car, hit the back bumper and pushed it into the ******* wall I park in front of at the shop. There was damage, but far from "explosion" status.

Before I got mine I did a lot of searching around and IIRC, anything GV is going to cost quite a bit to get. So unless you've found a good middle man that can do it for cheap, I'd expect to pay ~$700 for that bumper.

GV lip GV bumper

That's some retarded logic man, c'mon. You do know that the GV lip is urathane and not fiberglass, right? But who honestly expects a parge protruding item on the bottom of a car to be OK after impacting large heavy objects? It's not meant to be a plow or a cattle guard..it's just meant to divert air lol

IIRC mine was abot $1300 after shipping and that was before the USD tanked and the exchange rate to yen was much more favorable. Most of the bumpers run about the same initial cost and shipping is the same.

My knockoff GV is holding up perfectly. My authentic GV is in pieces... and the TR has been treated more harshly. I accidentally ran it up on a pile of gravel at Ft. Bragg, it folded under the car, damn near. By the time I got home it was back to its original shape. Incredible.
