This is a feeler, due to lack of funds, i might need to sell this off.

Whats included?
Group A Bumper (Super Red) - Has a slight crack but easily fixed by a pro
All Grill's -some slightly bent, but fixable
Group A Support - lighter then the GT4 front support, also designed for the front bar
All required screws

Don't waste my time with stupid bids, post them up in here. Do not PM me. I have a price in mind, and if it comes up, ill let it go.

PS: For those that are interested, ill be replacing it with a firbeglass (ooops)front bar of some degree.

EDIT: Picture

http://ugbox.net/~lance/GT4/For%20Sale/bumper1.JPG Thats the major crack, it goes all the way thru, and can easily be plastic welded.
Also, the entire front undergaurd has various road scratches and stuff, expected for a front bar unfortionately.

I'm interested because my car is red. Can you show me pictures of all the damage, either here or Email me. Where abouts are you located at? Is the crack noticeable? Thanks

Even though mine is black I'm interested cos I like BIG INTERCOOLERS :D and I plan on a full respray early next year.

What is a Group A front bar worth anyway? I wouldn't know where to start bidding without ripping myself off or low balling you.

Hmm, a little bit to much damage for me.. As Classique has stated I'm a bit of an ani-group A buy anyway. I was just thinking of bling facter with a nice big out in the open FMI. I would even think about cutting out the middle bar for extra show. LOL

I'll pass though. I'll spend that money on water injection and a boost controller.

Next year: FMI 'Wyldie style'

Thankyou for pointing that low bid out stu. The bumper maybe damaged, but i could get close to 2.5 that if i put it up on toymods or ebay. Since the support and the genuine grills cost a bundle.

Must have missed you on IRC. Ill catchyou on next time.

mmm iwoudl'nt go too mental, i've seen those things sold in perfect nick for 250 300, not saying u shoud'nt ask for more man, by all means the fuckers are rare get what u can for it, but it's not unknown for a bar in bad nick to go for that price

Keyroo: you are right about the bar only costing about $300 second hand. But remember, those bars don't come with the grills, and the bumper support. Thats worth the money.

How about i post up an idea what the whole conversion costs with some new parts ?

I can tell you its over a grand - less than 1500 - and i still had to fabricate some parts myself , and buy some second hand .

Sorry to rain on parades here dudes and dudettes - but in all seriousness - they ARE worth alot of money - thats why two of the bastards ive had imported from japan have vanished without a trace from containers - in secure shipping yards - before they even reached the shores..

I get REAL touchy about Low offers on parts like these cause im sure people really dont understand what they are paying for - just make sure to do your research before making offers that might get me narked up ( its been a fucked up + 10X week here - bound to bite at anything atm )

Thankyou stu,

I may sound like a tightarse, but thats just the thing. Im resonable on how much i want to get rid of this. If i have to, ill get a quote to see how much it would be worth with everything perfect.

I had a damaged GRP A bumper at one stage and it cost GT4Me around $100 to be plastic welded and around another $200 to get it resprayed as far as I remember. To tell you the truth there's probably really no need to weld and respray that bumper unless you want it 100% perfect. You can do a leb job on it with some bog and touchup paint and it should look ok. From what i've seen them go for, i'd say this can would fetch around $300-350 since it has the support and grills....

And to put another perspective on things Stu, I paid $2650 for a complete GRP A front cut which included motor, gearbox, ecu + loom, hood, bumper etc. There's always a cheaper way of doing things :)

It's sometimes not fair to compare 2nd hand parts to those sold by the Toyota spares dept whose prices are stupidly expensive.

Mate, would you consider selling the grills separately? I'm guessing you probably won't but it's worth a shot! :)

If i get offers on the bar, and the support, then sure.

To tell you guys, i'm after around $500 for this.

As i said, im fairly resonable about it.

But, i won't be letting it go for a while.
