How did I miss this one? I saw plenty of these around when I was a kid. A nice build Allan - did the Bedford have a big four or six cylinder engine?

Allan glade you managed to save it the bumper is all boxed up and going to be posted tomorrow. The bumper the plastic buck behind it I left it on so that it does not get damaged in the post. You could leave it on or take it off , If you leave it on and just trim it back and glue it to the cab the bumper sits at the right level the bumper has been heat set and should hold its shape but It is now a little more brittle than normal styrene. All most forgot just trim the sides to the lenght that you want if you have any problems just let me know
