I keep these old bumper end-caps but I heard they are unrepairable. For me is very painful sent them to trash since these items are near to impossible to find.
Somebody told me they are made of urethane.
Anybody knows if they are repairable?

Thanks for reading.

I know in the US there are companies that repair urethane bumpers. I would hold on to them just in case you the ones you got now get damaged worse then those. Check out Youtube. Lots of videos on urethane bumper repair.

I just took a better look at your pics. Those are in real bad shape. It might be easier to find a set in the US if you ever need some.

You are right, these endcaps are really broken with holes of missing pieces.

I would forget about this affair, while my Eagle won´t need new endcaps for a lot of time.

I found this item on Ebay

I will consider your advice in the reparation of the old urethane bumpers.

Thanks a lot from overseas (Spain)

Here's some info on the make up of the end caps and the company that made them.
