You posted this somewhere else around here already. I'm a grumpy old git who has to say: "Post it once, and be patient for a reply please". Three exclamation marks doesn't make a part more available either. :lol: There's not a "need" either, there's a "want" ;)

Really doubt you will need new bumpers, they will be restorable I'm pretty sure. Alternatively your car is a common colour so you could source some colour coded ones from a 340 GLE or 360 GLE/GLT

Type Linseed Oil into the top right search bar. You get 3 pages of results. 3rd page has this : http://www.volvo300mania.com/forum-uk/v ... il#p108359

which i posted over two years ago, scroll down a bit, i doubt you need new bumpers unless cracked or damaged, "greying" is sortable.

I have used this on my departed ford Laser in Australia. This works really well. I'm sure they'd sell this in the UK
