WTB: Plastic covers, front bumper cover, headlights, and a mirror

Hi all. I have a 1997 Boxster base that needs a front bumper cover in arctic silver. I also need a pair of headlights that hopefully aren't yellowed or foggy. I have a pair that someone gave me for free a while ago, but they don't seem to be working properly, and they're incredibly yellowed.

Plastic covers needed: Brake reservoir and master cylinder cover and battery cover.

Sideview mirror: Passenger side mirror is spiderwebbed and needs replacing.

Thanks!

Rob, I'm on the road right now, but if you are still looking Tuesday, I'll send pics of an Arctic silver passenger side mirror and the reservoir/mc cover. See this for the battery cover: http://986forum.com/forums/boxster-parts-sale-wanted/62361-wtb-986s-battery-plastic-cover.html
For a new bumper cover check out this: http://www.********************************************************************************************/search/?filter=AND%28usap_wpn_tlc_name:Auto+Body+Parts+%2 6+Mirrors,usap_wpn_cat_name:Bumpers+%26+Components ,usap_wpn_scat_name:Bumper+Cover%29
With a coupon code from here:

(about $300 shipped, but needs paint.)
Did you get the brakes sorted out? If the master cylinder wasn't good, let me know.

Brakes are being bled out at a local mechanic shop tomorrow, I don't want to get brake fluid all over once again. Thanks for the leads! It looks like the site doesn't have the exact match for the bumper, however, and if possible, I'd like to buy a bumper that already matches my paint.

Right, the only bumper they have is the 03-04 base style (it will fit and 97-04). The professional matching arctic silver paint job on the one I bought cost over $300. The black one I painted myself was only about $40 in paint/materials

Here's what I have available. The mirror is dirty and still on the door, stuck in the back corner of my tornado shelter. Price is either a few $ less than what we find on eBay or .50 more than Woody would sell it for. If it turns out that MC was bad, you get $$ credit.

...and in case you do want to see that bumper cover, go to their web site and put this part# in the search: REPP010304P.
I see that the link I gave earlier only works if you have the right cookies set.
Currently listed at $368.xx and every week or two they email a coupon code for 20% off and free ship.

Hello 78F350,

Not to cut in but I'm looking for the Boxster S bumper. I put that model number in and nothing came up as being available. Do they restock there supplies fairly quickly? Thats a killer price!

I just went through the process, short of paying and it was no problem for me.
The bumper said "in stock, ships in 1-2 days" for that AND the S style bumper.
My current 20% discount expires tonight. The only way I can get these to display on their web site is to tell it I have a 2004 Boxster, or make sure I don't have any car selected and search the part number.



I also see other similar priced options if I search the part number in Google:
https://www.google.com/search?q=REPP010304P&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=REPP010304P&tbm=shop

https://www.google.com/search?q=REPP010304P&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#tbm=shop&q=REPP010303P

I've always had great customer service and quick shipping with APW. YMMV with the Googled sources. Note that these are just the bumper cover with no grill/trim pieces.

Is it a guarantee that these will fit well? I've been warned at every shop that I get an estimate from to not stray far away from oem

Not sure about an actual guarantee. Read the fine print, or call APW for details. I have bought two of these both fit well. They are a plastic material, not fiberglass, and seem the same as OEM. This is just one piece and will still need grill and bottom corner trim pieces. I cut a piece of gutter guard mesh for mine.

From what I've heard they are a little thinner but overall pretty good buy. Like Jon said though, they don't come with the vent grills.

To answer your question posted on my thread. Sorry but I don't ship large body parts at this time.

It's saying that it won't fit my 1997 model, is this correct? Or should I not worry about it.
