The first known CIPSA made Peeping Bomb was sold on eBay in May, 2005. Since then, about 30 more Peeping Bombs have been found in all of the
CIPSA metallic colors. All examples of the Peeping Bomb have paint issues such as bubbles or paint pops. There are no casting variations, the
diagnostic features are the paint colors, headlight paint and taillight paint. The base on the CIPSA version tend to be dull.
Head Light Detail
The headlights on the CIPSA (L) appear to be hand painted with a white or dull silver paint. US versions have chrome plated headlights.
Tail Light Detail
The rear tail light paint on the CIPSA version(L) is more red than orange. It is also a bit less glossy than the US version(R) of paint.
Rivet Spin Detail
The rivet spins on the Peeping Bomb have a depression in the center and has a sloppy appearance with excess flashing visible.
This is typical of other CIPSA castings.
