<VV> bumpers

OK, So who is giving $80 for cores?  We can get bumpers straightened and 
rechromed for $100 in Chicago.  I've got garage rafters full of (pretty 
much) straight bumpers that could use a rechrome.

What is the shipping cost on an e(vil)Bay purchase from your location to 
"wherever" for an odd shaped package like a bumper?  Could this possibly 
impact the bids?  And, yes - I'd require insurance on eBay for a rechromed 
bumper - but not for a core.

Well, I'd still like to know where I can sell my rough ones for $80.00.
