    Question Easier to find holy grail than a silver lightning bumper!!!

    Well i have been looking for a rear bumper for the Edition 100 for 2 months now.
    First started when had to go to Bristol on a course in August. Parked car up at work car park and caught the train.
    Come home a week later to find someone had reversed on of the Transits in to the back-end of the car, DoHHH!!!
    Of course no one saw anything so went to my usual chap who said he could fix it up and paint it including fitting the new VXR insert thats waiting to go on for £200.
    Problem is got the impression that he may not be able to repair it to 'as was' condition so am reluctant to shell out £200 for me to keep looking at it thinking its not right.
    So after trawling web pages, e-bay sellers and filling in 2 dozen online breakers forms to source a rear SRI bumper in Silver Lightning i have come up with a big fat O!!
    Surely there must be an SRI with a good rear bumper in Silver Lightning somewhere in the country.
    Im not asking too much am I?
    If anyone knows where one is or another option to try please help, i will pay a finders fee!!
    If you have an SRI/GSI in silver lightning for gods sake dont rear end it, youll never get it fixed!!
    Thanks for letting me rant on.

    Mark.

    Even if you did manage to find one in lightening silver theres no guarantee its exactly the same shade (theres plenty of variations on this one colour)

    Just bite the bullet and buy the cheapest one you can find in any colour and get it pro colour matched and painted, job done.

    Cheers guys,

    Didnt think about there being a difference in the shade from one bumper to the next Andy.
    Your idea sounds best at the mo.
