SX/4 at flea-market in Central PA
« on: February 12, 2013, 02:30:13 PM »
Stopped in at a flea market along route 22 near Blairsville and saw this parked out back:



I didn't see the driver anywhere on the way in or out.

We all should be carrying stalking cards :o with us so we could leave contact information
on windshields.

Nice looking sx4, wish someone would reproduce the bumper end caps, bet they could sell a ton, seems we all need them!

Good idea Jim, would be nice to leave a card and tell them about the nest

I could reproduce a set of end caps, but the first set would cost $300 in materials to build the mold.  I'd also need a good set to make a mold from.

Not to hijack the thread, but aren't the front bumper ends interchangable for all the models?

Yes, they're the same in the front 81-88. The rear SX4 endcaps are slightly longer than the front. The rear Station Wagon and Sedan endcaps are much longer. That gives us three lengths total needed.

Again, not hijacking ;D

But Are the SX4 endcaps the same as the Spirit/Concord? I know the Eagle wagons are different, I have 4 "Decent" ones on my spirit, and 4 not do decent spares tucked away. Treat them like gold....

And I think the rear bumper ends on the Kammback are different from all the others too!
