[E-Type] Any experience with http://www.sgbumperscar.com?

They advertise a stainless S1 bumper set for a very
reasonable amount. Via email they said they could also make
up stainless bumpers for my xk120 and even my BMW E9.

Before I send a wad of money to Vietnam … I’d be curious
to know if anyone else has dealt with them and if the
experience was satisfactory.–

Hi John,
I don’t know this company but
theres a company Harrington making
SS bumprs for many classics in
Vietnam. Maybe the company you
refer to is a Harrington
distributor?
I have seen Harrington bumpers
being fitted to a '70s mercedes in
Kuala Lumpur … The quality
seemed excellent, they were well
packed and I saw them being fitted
and there was no issue… They
looked good…–

I sent them an email asking for a price.

The reply I got makes me wonder if it’s a scam…–

I have received another email from ‘‘Ms Helen’’ offering me a
complete set of stainless bumpers for my Series 1.5 for
US$800. She promises to offer me the ‘‘best deal’’ on postage
too.–

Well, if you give Ms Helen a go, let us know how it all
turns out. It could be legit, but I would certainly check it
out thoroughly as the price of 800 is 1/2 what Harrington
would charge.

In reply to a message from Robert Moore sent Sun 11 Mar 2012:

I have finally got some pictures of the bumpers:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/71499700@N08/sets/721576296600567
95/

If they’re genuine they look OK. Best price I have got to is
US$800 plus $30 postage.

I’m not going to buy them; I’ll rechrome my existing ones
because I’m not sure that SS will look the same as chrome.–
