    Default Sourcing bumper strip

    Hi Guys,

    Repainting a bumper on one of our Bx's. At the moment the front bumper had a black strip on it, but the rest of the car has red colour strips. Any idea where i could buy some red strips to put in place of the black one once I have finished respraying it??? Or Can I repaint the old one red. The strip i'm talking about is the lower one, not the one between the side guard and bumper.



    Cheers,

    Hi Dave,

    I'm guessing its a metal strip? All I did with the 205 is buy some paint remover and apply to strip then repaint in red.

    Nah, its soft bendy rubber, i'm just worried if i paint it red it will flex and crack
    If I painted it I think it would crack when sticking it back onto the car.

    It's plastic actually if it's the same as the 16V one.

    I'd try some of the plastic moulding shops or possibly even an Arts and Crafts store as they often use strange things that might be adaptable.
    On the 16V it appears to have been heated and then hit in with a mallet. It then goes a wedge shape and seems to jam itself in tightly.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Alan,

    This Tri bumpers strips are actually soft bendy rubber, but you just gave me an idea, I believe our Tri122 wreck has harder plastic inserts on its front bumper, I could possibly get away with painting them as the are more rigid, i'll have to crawl under the garage (where dad and I hide car parts from mum) when I get home and have a squiz. Any other ideas appreciated

    BTW Alan I'm sure your right about the originals being plastic, these rubber ones were just double sided taped on - so not factory i don't think.

    Dave when my 16v had a sproose up we replaced the plastic strips, readily available and not that expensive ($18.00 each??). The 16v is a much narrower strip to the one you need though.

    Try Col at Euroserve for price and availability for the Tri...

    Cheers

    I'm also after a strip for the rear side of the car like this, as at the moment my car has a non matching skinny strips.



    I've called Chris at euroserve (Looks like Col got stolen by City Peugeot) said he doubts they are made anymore but will have a look around.

    Anyone wrecking a Tzi or know where I could get a pair of these strips?

    Cheers,

    Dave

    How similar are they to a Trs?

    No promises, but if they're close enough, might be able to snavel a couple off one of those.

    Whoops; save your breath, I thought you said Tri but TZi and TRs are like chalk and cheese. Should open my eyes more.

    Just got a call back from Chris (Euroserve not GB) and no luck. Will have to make do with the odd skinny ones which are on there.

    Maybe i'll be lucky and come across a Tzi wreck one day.

    Have you tried Martin Bray. He sounds like he's wrecked just about every Citroen ever sold here (even some that were never sold here).

    Well I have given up on getting the Tzi strip, so I have peeled the current one off to paint the correct colour.
    Now I need to find a way of putting it back on so it STAYS on. Any product that someone can recommend and the place to get it??
    Double sided tape or some sort of tube of glue??

    3M probably make something?? what shop has heaps of their stuff?
    Supercheap doesn't seem to have what i'm after.

    I havent had much luck with this sort of thing in the past so any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Just go to your local Auto-paint store. I've a couple of rolls of double sided tape in different widths. It isn't really cheap, but it IS good. The strips are held onto all my cars using it. I'm yet to have one fall off (even though b@stards nudge them in carparks all the time).
