Tuesday the postman delivered a huge package:
my rear bumper was really not something to be proud about, one of the pre-owner tried to remove rust or whatever and removed the chrome in some areas, it was dull and rusty:
So I finally ordered a re-chromed bumper from the Volkswarenhaus. This one looked killer from the outside, but I had to paint the inside to a near factory finish, the "Hammerschlagsilber" (hammer finish silver). I also wanted to add overriders, there were some in my parts stash, but even if the outside was in decent shape, the inside was rusty and a no go!, Again, Jens, my favorite media blaster came into play, he removed all rust and the old paint in minutes - thank you once more for the express service, Jens! If you ever look for media blasting, hobby or industrial, look no further: http://www.sandstrahltechnik-kraft.de/
Here a before / after comparison:
Then all the shinny bits were mounted, I also used the time to add the missing fender beading beneath the rear apron:
I like it! Now I will apply I final coat of wax, just to be sure it will last really long!
