I could not find the midnight Blue Euro 500SE in the lot. I did however find a Gen I 500 SE or SEL in Lapis Blue in the lot and removed the back bumper. It wasn't where you saw the other one, but closer to the front. Interior was pretty well used up, but the bumper and fascia were in really good shape. I snagged it. Easy removal!!! easier than I thought. 4 nuts off and VOILA the bumper slid right off the side mounts and was off. I had the truck take it to the fr
front for me.
Bumper rode home in the frontseat and back seat with jackets under the parts contacting my leather interior. Where there is a will there is a way.
While I was removing the bumper they set out a Burgundy(the one Teutone and I saw on the lift in the back the last time I was there) 500 SE or SEL with Palomino Interior.
HMMM Fresh bait. I got ALL the electonics/relays from under the hood, all relays, Ice Cubes, Cold start injector, Idle Control valve, and the Gen II EZL which looks recent with a lot of Thermal paste on the back of it.
Good day at the yard and a couple great scores. Bumper was $40.00.........SCORE!!!
Now to disassemble, polish and paint the fascia body color.
