Ropal; Bumper Treatment - has anyone ever seen one on a car or have pictures?
Posted by: ral1963 ()

So nearly everyone knows about or has seen one of the half dozen or so cars running the Cal Custom Bumperettes, but has anyone ever seen, have pictures of, or owns a set of the Ropal Bumper treatments?

Looks like you keep the stock bumper, and you add the 5 trim pieces below the bumper to each side and add the two above replacing the factory nose trim.

I have only seen drawings of this treatment and have never seen a actual photo or car with them installed, nor have I ever seen any of these parts for sale.

Has anyone else?

No pic's, no memories of ever seeing one at a carshow?

Nothing but this drawing?

I thought someone on CCF had a dark brown wagon with a similar treatment. Had a surfboard on top and was in California.

Am I just imagining that I saw this?

Maybe it was multiple bumper guards I was thinking of...
