Hey Nate, welcome to the site. The stang looks sinister.

Welcome to the site! Hey, I've always wondered... does American-German food taste like German-German food? My cousin lived there for awhile 20 years ago, but only ate at American chain places!

nah....For example...McD's over here is better than in the states...What you see on the menu and how it looks is what it will look like when it gets served to you...Same with BK.

Question...Anyone live near a junkyard....Need a new front bumper...:mad:

Bumper bash

I lived in Germany twice - both times before it was "Germany" again (West Germany then). I was stationed in Baumholder (near Kaiserslautern in southern Germany) in the early 70's.

I'd consider buying a new oem urethane bumper. Used bumpers are often pretty badly scraped and pitted, and the urethane tabs that bolt on to hold the sides often crack/break, and they're a problem to do without or replace.

If you want to go with a different look, Summit often has a good deal on a Cobra bumper kit, while Cervini has good quality merchandise (lousey customer service though, so beware). Whatever you do, avoid fiberglass bumpers - way too fragile.

If you go with an aftermarket bumper, be advised the urethane jobs usually come "uncured" and unprimered. The curing requires baking for a long while in a paint booth, and the primer job is a little unusual, in that you must use the proper primer for polyurethane (regular primer is a definite no-no).

Good luck!
