Did you know that you can fit with some slight modification to the ends a Hillman Hunter rear bumper. Same fittings, but needs both ends cutting off to fit the f/b quarter bumpers, just doing this on mine.

Thanks for the tip. I know the early Humber Sceptre's had exactly the same bumper as the Rapier.

Do you not have a fastback centre section? I have some spare somewhere if you need one.

Hi, yes I have 2 spare now, it was just that the chrome was better on the "Hunter" bumper, plus not really happy with the stock reverse lights, so had no qualms about modifying the Hunter bumper slightly to accept some slim flush fitting ones, which can be returned to standard if need be.

I was given a pair off of a Sceptre bumper but never tried them. The guy didn't have the centre piece, but I presume it's same as Rapier. Not even sure where I put them, but having a 'ruthless' clear out at the moment, so hoping to get all my Rapier stuff better organised.
