Are pool noodles or bumper material spare parts?
In terms of the 30lbs withholding limit, no.
Sorry i should have specified better. Only the fabric and noodles.
If its plain fabric and noodles it would be a COTS part, and if assembled them a Bumper, both being exempt.
I would assume(though that is dangerous) that intermediate stages would also be exempt.
I mean, wouldn’t the intermediate stage just be a not-complete bumper?
I’d think so.
And also assuming that you’re actually using these parts for bumpers. A pool noodle pre-cut to (for example) 42" that you’re going to use as a boulder blocker is part of the robot, not the bumper, and is NOT an exempt part.
