Default Simpson Design short rear bumper GB

I've been wanting to replace my rear bumper, as I now have a center exit exhaust, and have been considering the Simpson Design shorty bumper.

I contacted Jim Simpson at SD and he said that if we have 4 people we can get the rear bumper for $340 shipped (in cont. US). The current "shipped" price is $390, so this is a pretty decent deal. If you are interested, please send me a PM.

4.

The bumper comes gel-coated and will need to be painted. There are no cutouts on the bumper, so it can be adapted to fit with your exhaust setup (left-side, right-side, or center exhaust).

Any better pics of this thing? Those pics are too low quality and have limited "perspective".

I'll ask if Jim can send me some higher res pics. I've seen one in person before and it really rounds out the back of the car. I'll post as soon as I have something.

I've always wanted one of these bumpers but haven't considered it more cause I can't find any good pictures. So....more pics then maybe for me.

Hey Tim,

I got an email from Jim this afternoon. He said that unfortunately he didn't have any better pics (other than the website). The pics of the SCC car pretty much show how it's going to look.

David Woolery has this bumper on his miata, although he has removed the belt line and cut out the center section.

double post just for you Loki047
Cool Tim. Let me know.

TwoScoops, I don't know the name of the fender flares, but he bought them (I'll ask him which ones he used). He did have them molded into the body, which is why they look like one piece. David has some serious work into this car.

Ike,

I would like to be included in the group buy for the Simpson Shorty for a 91 NA. I would need to get it shipped to Los Angeles. I tried to send you a PM. But being a newbie here, I am not allowed to send PMs......

Sounds good. Sorry I didn't see this until today. I have a couple of other guys interested (two for sure). Los Angles is no problem. The price will be $340 shipped. I'll let you know when I get the last person (should be within the next couple of weeks).

Thanks,
Ike

I might be interested, got rearended by some stupid bitch the other day and it looks like my bumper and finishing plate need to be replaced. Gotta wait and see what her insurance says since the cop decided to right that he couldnt determine if the damage was there prior to the accident on the police report. Not only is there a rectangular hole in my finishing plate from her externally mounted ez pass but my bumper is misaligned and warped-go figure
