    Default F430 rear bumper (for challenge look modification)

    Hi all,

    I'm planning to fit a challenge rear grille so require a standard rear bumper which I'll have modified.... read as, cut down!

    I've had my eye on eBay for a while but it appears everything offered is damaged. Scratches and chips to the surface is acceptable, but cracks and damage to the mounts is not.

    In the unlikely event that anyone has a genuine "challenge look" option bumper available, obviously I will consider this too!

    Thanks,

    Ralph.

    Ps. Also require the challenge grille (Coupe version); must be as new condition.

    +1 Ralph but I'm happy to use my bumper and buy the challenge CF top part, need a bodyshop that is familiar with this job?

    Dave my detailer found a local body shop that did mine - owner has a 360 himself so did a precision job. Will dig out the details itís up Warrington way.

    A competent bodyshop will be able to modify your existing bumper, that is not in dispute.

    Personally I would rather acquire a second bumper and keep the original exactly that. I was hopeful the community would have some supply of standard F430 rear bumpers but apparently not!

    For any one else who is looking... this has been on eBay for months:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RARE-GENU...MAAOSwKBFakeXB

    Price has dropped from around 700, to 595 and now 550. Offer a lot less than that though...

    This for me is overly damaged, so I haven't even offered. It has suffered a serious knock to the NSR and has damaged the mounts. A repair could be out by a few mm and result in panel gap problems. If it is worth a shot for someone else, go for it!

    Owner is Andrew Lennie.

    They made a scriber block to get the correct cut line and the work was immaculate and better than the factory examples I have seen.
