Do you ever go to the Washing State swap meets ? There is a company that seems to be  always at meets like the spring Puyallup and spring and fall Monroe meets that is very popular. I have not used them myself but based on the amount of business they are doing they must be doing something right. I believe the name is  " Bumper Boy's " Anyone in the Pacific North West that more first hand experience ?

That company is more than on the West coast.

To put it politely:  From what I've heard of others'

experience, I would absolutely find someone else.

Bumper Boys products are rechromed in Tijuana and are known to be of inferior quality. They may look great at first but after a year or two there will be peeling and cracking. Pay a little more from a different company. Good luck....

Thanks for the information.  Popular does not always mean good quality.  I thought they were a local  { Washington State } company.  Makes sense though. If you are going after the most price conscious customers you must minimise all costs especially labor.

Steve at Victoria plating did the rear bumper on my 62 Lincoln last year including the bumper ends for what I thought was a reasonable price under $1000 cdn and they did a nice job.

 

oldglassman would you happen to be on Vancouver Island? I have a couple project cars that need complete flat glass cut and installed if you have any recommendations

These guys specialize in 55, 56 and 57 Thunderbirds but you may want to give them a call and see if they have anything for your car.

They occasionally have parts for later years as well.
