So the time has almost come for production on the pieces. The mold for the hood is being created as of now, the rear bumper is produced but some touch ups are being made.

Here's the breakdown for price:

Hood: $950
Bumper: $695

Painted Hood: +$450
Painted Bumper: +$450

Shipping will be individual as I am not a company and don't have connections with UPS, Fedex, etc.

I will now be accepting 50% deposit if you would like these items, first come first serve basis of course.

Pictures of the Rear Bumper:











As you can see you will need your body shop to take the oem braces and PDC tubes from your stock bumper. I opted for this route so it's more of an OEM fit. Regarding the PDC tubes, your body shop can separate them from your bumper and use a high strength glue or fiberglass to ensure placement.
Mesh for the vents and rivets for OEM brackets will be provided with the purchase of the bumper. The bumper is made of fiberglass.

Pictures of the Hood:





The hood is still being made at this point but I've taken all the step with the mold maker to ensure OEM fitment. Carbon inserts for the vents will be included. The hood will be made out of fiberglass.

Much appreciated :)

There was hiccup a couple weeks ago so I think the mold will be done in 3 weeks, first hood will be made last week of October or first 2 weeks of November.

John, do you know how much the braces/tubes/etc cost from? Trying to decide whether I would want to take them off my existing bumper or just buy the parts from somewhere. I'm planning to sell my current bumper which is why I am asking.

Also gotta figure out what I'm going to do with my stock hood if I buy the new one. LOL I was thinking of a road trip down to LA to put it on, etc... but not going to work as I have no way of bringing back up the old stuff.

LOL. And Tony has it easier too... the hood and rear bumper won't be THAT aggressive on a black car. On my white, the vents on both the hood and rear bumper are going to stick out a lot. The car will be much more aggressive. It might force me to finally have my wheel centers refinished to a darker gunmetal to finish the aggressive look.

John, how do you think the finish will hold up during shipping? Haven't decided whether I want mine painted pre-ship or not.

Both ;)

Depends on how you want your car styled, if you want a more aggressive look without looking gaudy I would say get it, but it's not everyone's cup of tea :)

That was one thing I was researching. I found out for the E60 PDC you can't buy the tubes separately, they come as part of the bumper. As for the other brackets I'll see if there's a part number for it. I could always hold onto your hood for you or Paul might be able to take it up?

If we coordinate a time where you can drop your car off there will be no extra charge to transfer the OEM brackets and tubes to the bumper, assuming you're getting it painted.

hey JME...is there extra charge from ur shop if they were to do my brackets, PDC, etc alteration?
Yes this is true, it won't pop too much. Gunmetal centers sounds good :D
I believe the finish will hold up in shipping, the boxes will be larger to accommodate for larger cushions.

You do have to pay for quality :) but it's not like Hamann believe me... haha

It is probably not cheap right since it's Radenergie. :biggrin:

Slightly off topic John but what about those CF side extensions? Forgot if you were still planning on making those or not and how much.
