New Euro Stainless Steel Bumpers available at Blunttech

Post by bafbaf »

All,

Steve and the folks at Blunttech have been working over the past year to produce stainless steel E28 Euro bumpers. About a year ago, I provided a set of Euro bumpers to Steve to serve as the pattern for building new Euro bumpers from stainless steel. After a long wait, they finally arrived and I received set #1:

They are super polished and look fantastic. Finger prints do show up easily. I think that might be the only downside to bumpers that will never rust.

Blunttech is installing them on a car and should have installed pictures sometime soon. I believe they have at least 4 sets in stock.

They’re cool but require work to make them fit. Also at $1300+ kinda expensive. Again Cool nonetheless and grateful that people are still supporting the e28.

It’s great that they’re producing these though. $1300 is not too expensive if they fit correctly.

Thank you Steve for taking on this initiative! You and your team are a great asset to our community! I can't wait to see these mounted, but hopefully I don't need to replace mine ever (knocking on wood {table} right now).

This sounds great. Thanks for the effort and time. Not cheap to do this work. $1300 is a great price. Cheaper than some of the rusty garbage some offer.

As I understand the trim is separate. Are they made to specification so that the OEM trim will fit?

In my pics, I only took one piece out of the wrapping as I'm not ready to install them yet and they are very well wrapped for protection. The dark look parts are simply still in the packing wrap.

They are mirror polished stainless steel. The back side has some kind of undercoat on it. Not exactly sure why because they are non-magnetic (304) stainless.

The kit (at least what I have) is just the bumpers plus the nuts/bolts to assemble the various bumper pieces. No plastic bits.

These should be OEM fit because Blunttech used my new OEM Euro bumper set as the pattern. I think Dave at Blunttech is putting them on a car soon and will have some pics.

That's about all I know. I'm sure the Blunttech guys will be happy to answer more questions. Once I get these installed, I'll definitely post some pics.

Thanks for posting these Brian. These use OE rubber and clips and the fitment is great. We put that disclaimer in the description because we spend hours on the phone with guys with little to no mechanical skill who should really have a pro install these. But its not difficult and again the fit is great. We sold Brian the last primed set of OE euro bumpers we had in the world and we used those as models for these stainless. I have interesting video my son took when he toured the bumper facility. Ill try to get it up so you can see the process

Any update here? I'm considering purchasing a set, but I'd love to see some install/fitment pictures (and or hear the experience of one who has installed them).

I'd like to see more examples as well. Can the fronts/rears be sold separately?
Thanks

Thanks alot. One more question, this set will fit bolt on to the EURO E28 correct? Direct replacement, no adapters needed?

We can do it but they state the following

"Currently , the customs of country Russian are very difficult.
So, I need the name company and tax code of company."
