Default Smooth Front bumpers

Love the cruisers and I'm in the process of picking up my super slammers/ tokikos...My question would be off topic of suspension....it's regarding the smooth front bumper with all the stock sharp edges smoothed, I LOVE that look...is that an after market part that is still available? and if so where could I get it?

What year is your PT? The 1st gen convertibles had smooth bumpers.

What your lookin' for is an earlier front bumper cover. Pay for quality though, there's a lot of Chinese knock-offs on the market that don't quite fit or are of a lesser thickness. Look for a trusted supplier.

I was very satisfied with the one I got from this supplier for SOOO BIG.

Don't forget to check to see if the metal center brace is either installed as a part of the unit or save it from your other cover. Without it, the upper center portion of the cover just under the upper grill will buckle. Good Luck.

Happy PTin', ptprice

Just to be sure we're covering the right bases, the OP may be asking about the PTeazer front fascias.

For stock bumper fascias, the base, non-turbo Cruisers had the divots recessed in the outer ends of the bumper like in ptprice's photo above. The '02 Dream and the '03 through '05 turbo models were smooth without the divots. There were some other differences in shapes but the turbo fascia can be installed on the base model if the lower radiator support is also changed to a turbo piece. (The '06 and newer Cruisers got the 1980's import looking bumpers. But that's another story. )

Here's a link to the PTeazer site. Note that the bumper covers could be had with the divots and without......
