Exploring front bumper options for the Sprint, mines a 74 car. I have found an early 1850 bumper part number 913431 will this fit? I can’t find any pictures to show the difference, but Rimmers do say the mounting brackets are different? The holes in the bumper are at different positions to the later ones.

Any ideas on this?

Also, bumper irons ( later ones ) is the difference between left and right just the drilled holes for the under rider? It appears my bumper has two left hand brackets as one under rider has a gap between it and the bumper. For some reason right hand ones seem harder to find.

Chris.

For an early 1850 bumper you'll need early 1850 brackets.

The handing of the brackets is more than the under rider hole, they are inclined and if you put them on the wrong sides you affect the location of the bumper. The RHS are harder to source for the same reason most RHS stuff is harder to source; that side gets accident impact more often so supplies are used up quicker.

Have you tried Fitchetts (ring them, don't rely on their website) or Mick Dolphin?
