Default Will pay any reasonable asking price and arrange shipping

I am looking to finish a project and need a rear Tiger shark bumper. Color does not matter, new or used and condition does not matter as long as it is repairable. I am a motivated buyer for this item since Starcraft has production on hold.
Thanks, Richard

I'm trying to determine if the TS kit is currently available. Have you contacted any distributors?

Unfortunately, it's not. They stopped making them

Default still looking

I am still in the market for the rear bumper. I have the front piece. Contacted a few vendors and most will say its on back order but it takes months. I will take a used one if anyone has one.

Default not yet

No JR-
The window has not been installed yet but the body man has the window and spare hood to practice on first along with the pictures you let me borrow. I sent you an email a few days ago requesting your adress so I can return them. I have copies now. Anyhow been trying to locate all the parts so this project goes to the body shop one time only. We are currently working on the led-drl turn signals for the front tiger shark fascia as well. The rear tiger fascia seems to be the problem locating. A lot of vendors advertise it but none really have it in stock and star craft the one that makes it does not know if they when production will restart.

Default led drl lights came

Well the drl-turn signal lights came and they will look pretty good in the Tiger Shark front end. The body man saw the idea I had and he came up with a better one so now I have to order more lights. Here goes the budget for this project. Still looking for the rear bumper to complete the project. Will install lights as a trial run when the rest are shipped to me and take a few pics then the front fascia will come off and begin the transformation. I am still looking for a tiger shark rear fascia to complete this project, will purchase a used one and pay what its worth to the owner.

Default led lights

Well all the lights are here now. Think I will wire them up for a test run and see what they look like. If I feel more lucky, I might just remove the front fascia and take it in to get its face lift. Still no luck on the rear tiger shark facia.
