Does anyone make F/G bumpers for the Dolly please?

Also I am looking for a rear cage or front and rear if anyone has one, older type or non certified is fine?

Thanks

Not that I’m currently aware of, but I’m certain our panel man could if we can develop suitable fixing strategy...problem is the mould costs rely on plenty of orders for economy of scale, and I’m not sure what the interest might be...

I have the kit to make some but if they already existed it would be easier!

Excuse a possibly dumb question but what would be the point of fibreglass bumpers as race prepped cars generally don't have or need bumpers and on a road car they wouldn't they wouldn't give the protection of a metal bumper so would be pointless?

My car is used for classic rallying and requires bumpers to be fitted but there is no restriction on material. the same rule applies to several of the classic racing series regulations.
Anyway, I think the back of a dolomite looks better with a bumper, just don't want to have a lump of rusty iron stuck out the back

Ah thanks that makes perfect sense and yes I agree with the rear end needing a bumper.

I think it is a good idea, you could have them chrome coated to look like the originals as well.

They would probably need a steel reinforcing strip in them just to protect against knocks.

I'd have a pair for the daily.
