Rubbing strip

#1 Post by Peter Douglas W » Fri May 14, 2021 10:33 am

Does anybody know where I can get a front Rubbing strip for my MKII 2000? Chris does not have any and Rimmers also.

I have a good used f/l front bumper rubber strip. It has a very small nick (not a chunk missing!) in the rubber on one corner, but it is very small, and if it was going on mine, I would disguise it with a small dab of Tigerseal / Sikaflex smoothed over. It could be fitted so it is on the underside which makes it more easily concealed.
Only downside - if it is being delivered, it would be a reasonably large parcel as the strip isn't particularly flexible and it would need a degree of protection.

Peter,
I have posted pictures in the other (identical) topic regarding your need for a front bumper rubber strip. Were you aware you started two topics about the same request - just to confuse us I guess ?!!? :D

I realised I had put it in the wrong box.
