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!
