Default WTB chrome front and rear bumper covers

I'm looking for chrome bumper covers similar to these:

Race and Street: Chrysler PT Cruiser Front and Rear Bumper Trim - Chrome - Autotecnica OUT OF STOCK

Race and Street is out of stock and they don't know when they'll be back in stock.

any ideas would be appreciated - I've been googling for a couple of hours with no success.

Thanks for the links - I should have posted that my Cruiser is an 05 - I found plenty for the 06+ but the 05- seems to be out of stock.

I did find this - looks interesting, and I am wondering if anybody has experience with these - they glue on - could you use the tape with them, I wonder?

Your talking about a whole new ball game with the full bumper. I didn't read it but I would think it needs more than glue but 3M double sided tape would hold it. A girl in the Tampa Bay site has both front and back.

Yowie - that's looking good - those chrome bumpers would be great on a Cool Vanilla Cruiser!

I don't know how to set up a link, but someone ( not me ) has a set for $350 on the Champaign Urbana Ill Craigslist.

If you enlarge the photo at the eBay site and then select the last of the pictures- the instructions, this is what you will read (and confirmed by me when I removed a set from a car recently.

The bumper covers are held in place with spots of silicone adhesive and self tapping screws. There are four screw holes along the bottom edge of the covers and two screw holes on top. The upper screws are hidden under the lower front corners of the front grille and only seen at the rear when the hatch is opened.
I will be using stainless steal. self-tapping flange head screws when I mount the used bumper covers that I acquired.
Perhaps 3M auto trim tape inside the edges of the covers would both hold the covers and cushion the metal to plastic contact surfaces, but do use screws.

Thanks. I just found it, too - and sent a message asking about shipping and whether or not they will fit an 05 (not a turbo).

It's about 400 miles to Champaign from here, but may be worth a drive - or not.

While Harry may have his sites now upon full chrome bumper covers, here is a site advertizing the 2001-2005 bumper chrome trim add-ons like those in his link:
