This Kit Will Be a Hit

In a press release dated April 1, Chrome 2 Black, Ltd announced that they are releasing a new and eagerly-anticipated kit to convert unsightly chrome bumper MGBs to the more recent and distinctive "rubber" bumper specification.
This Could Be on Your MGB

Chrome 2 Black spokesman Mickey Taken said "We have heard the demand from chrome bumper MGB owners and we've developed the new C2B-MGB kit of parts to easily convert their cars over to the look of the newer black bumper models. The kit will allow a competent home mechanic to perform the conversion over a week-end".

According to the press release, the kit will include taller springs, additional bumper mounting brackets, turn signal conversion wiring, black mesh grille along with the stylish black bumpers.
The press release went on to say that chrome bumper MGB owners could expect many benefits by converting, some of which include:
  • Increased ride height, better to see and be seen
  • Less chrome to polish - a bit of Armorall and you're ready for the concours class
  • Cornering will be more fun with greater body roll
  • The rear bumper is a convenient seat at car shows and cruise-ins
Spokesman Taken said that the firm expects to be in full production for deliveries commencing in approximately 12 months. He also mentioned that Chrome 2 Black, Ltd is considering a rubber bumper conversion kit for early MG Midgets. "We expect strong demand from Mark II Austin Healey Sprite owners, too. After all, they were completely left out of the black bumper era".


  1. I can't wait for a kit to be made for the MGA.

  2. Up next, the replacement body tub to convert Series 1 E-Types to the later 2+2 configuration, complete with drop-down DVD players and cupholders for the rear seats so your little darlings can not only ride with you, but be entertained and hydrated.

  3. I think the date says it all.
