Rear Bumper Corner Brackets

Post by pbar » Tue May 11, 2021 7:37 pm

I could do with a couple (one for each side) of those little L shaped rear bumper brackets for the corners. Capri Club sell them new for £57 (for both) with postage but I'm happy to re use and tidy up old ones if anyone has any spare I could buy.

I may have one or two of those knocking around!

Let me check the shed later tonight (I'll set an alarm now to remind me) and I'll let you know if I have them still/can find them still.

Cheers

Knew I had them somewhere!
Still with the original screws for the corner brackets if you want? Think I sprayed them with black hammerite to protect them and then never used them

Yours for £20?

Great stuff, thank you Danny. Just one question though, aren't they the same hand? I'm pretty sure that the offset hole should be on the opposite side for one of them, so they will fit left and right.

You are right Paul, they're not a pair

Thanks anyway Danny, it was good of you to look. I may still take them as I guess I could alter one, will let you know.

No worries, shout if you want them.
I think the CCI ones you mentioned are universal as they have both holes in so you could always drill one/both of my ones if you wanted to

Yes I guess I could drill a corresponding hole and perhaps weld a captive nut on. PM sent.
