    I advertised on here for bumper bolts and brake cable for my 49 Merc.  It is the only place I’ve advertised.  I have received similar emails from England and Sweden for the parts.  Since no one I’ve contacted had the bumper bolts and I’m told only one company makes them and they are back ordered over a month now, I couldn’t believe they would have them.

    Have you tried Dennis Carpenter for the bolts?




    I have tried them and they no longer make the bumper bolts and my understanding is they are no longer making the tail light lens.  The only place that has the bumper bolts is: <cite> </cite>

    <cite>but they have a two month or more waiting time.</cite>
