Random question but would somebody please measure the height of their late model Bay window bumper please?

I need to know the outer dimension of a front or rear bumper from the top edge to the bottom edge.

Thanks in advance,

Dave.

Dave, just saw your post. Will measure front and rear bumpers tomorrow. Are the bumpers the ones with the four fixing bolts horizontal or the Brasil type with the bolts one above the other. Mine are the horizontal type. Think they are the same size as the Brasil type.

it's the horizontal type mate. I have an unidentified over rider and can't remember if they are bay or type 3. 
Cheers,
Dave.

Hi Dave, measured the bumpers. They were both the same. Outside was 115mm and the inside was wider at about 138mm.
Hope this helps.

I gave you beetle overriders many moons ago, just to add more confusion in to the mix :)
Highly medicated for the safety of the masses

I think that's what I have o the back of the type3 as the NOS set I got from Canada were a pair of fronts and 2 left rears. 
I think this set I found were from a US van but I no longer have a van or van bumper to check.
