Well, looks like my friend in Japan came thru. My Japanese version of the bumper protector is on it's way and with any luck, I should have it by the end of this week. Dunno what the cost is since he refuses to tell me! It's satin stainless steel and should go nicely with the black paint and according to the dealer the lip will come very close to but will not touch the back-up sensors (sent come close up pictures of the rear with the sensors and approximate measurements in milimeters. The dealer told my friend (who is Japanese) that anything I want, to just call them (yup, I speak fluent nihongo). Man will I have some 'fun" when I visit there this fall :shock: :lol: :wink: since I'll be in Sendai City and that's where the dealer is! Will probably go broke! Will post some pics as soon as I get it.
