    Default Simca vedette versailles bumpers

    Hi Folks,

    It was remiss of me not to have given an update on my 2005 search for the Versailles over-riders. I finally found a pair in Mexico which I had shipped out, unfortunately they were absolute crap, flattened and rusty but with the talents of a good friend they were put back into shape, welded and chromed. As mentioned it was all the incentive I needed to start the restoration which pleased to say is now finished.

    I still remember with gratitude the advice and encouragement given by fellow members and if I didn't say it then I say it now ................. Many, many thank's.
