Just bought my first t4. 1999 800 special 130000 miles 10 months mot 5 months tax, ply lined. paid 500. just ordered some t4srus 85mm springs, having a rock & roll bed put in it, going to buy new rear lights and clear front indicators, badgeless grill, carpet the front and back out, and give it a respray but not sure whether to colour code the bumpers.

unless yours are damaged there is no reason why you couldnt get them shiny black again.

give them a clean then,
a heat gun brings them back to life.
finished with back to black.

def worth trying first

if not bumpers are about 70 each in black plastic for non genuine

gsf or eurocarparts

Keep them black and watch all the people who colour coded their bumpers going back to black in the future.Then just smile knowingly:D

There is a fantastic bloke called Bo Evens in Ilfracombe. He's done some stuff on my van and the finish is superb. I wouldn't let anyone else touch my vans body work. Here's his number 01271 862889. Well done for finding that van BTW looks like a good'n!
