Well I wonder if any of our American buddies would consider ordering me 4 sets of the CVD's and posting them to the UK for me, as they are SOOOO cheap and I sooooo need them lol.

No but seriously am more than happy to pay for the postage and the paypal fees etc if someone would be lovely enough to do it for me.

Here's hoping

Only for US & Canadian customers.. I sent an email to HB asking if I can order them outside the US and can't.. bummer..

MIP CVD's would have been awsome. I just purchased some for 5 times that price.

I have installed the BRP #6225 RC10 TC3 Wide front bumper. I cut 6-7mm from the back tabs and reused the center hole that was already there. All other holes where drilled using the chassis and the original bumper parts as a template. I did not modify anything else.

I have installed the Tamiya #53415 foam and cut with to the shape of the BRP bumper. It is thicker than the original, so I had to use a woodworking router to remove some material for the top bumper part to fit. Using of a sharp knife instead would probably be even better.

I will post some pictures.
