In the meantime.. Has it been since 2009 that you have been searching for these oversize bumperettes?
Maybe this is a case, similar to the Minimax. There are no doubt bunches of them, but where? People have them, but no incentive to list them because they are unaware of any possible demand.
I started cold-calling and blind-writing messages to car dumps and online breakers from north to south Netherlands, and in no time it was raining 10 euro Minimaxes, while the frenchies were offering them for 3-500usd, apparently shipped straight from Noah's Ark.
There are too many coincidental pics of these guards for them to be that rare. They can be found.

Yeah, almost ten years, but it's less of a priority now that I have the 6.9 bumpers, as I'm not sure if I want them on there or not. But, back when I had the regular USA bumpers, I really, really wanted them.
