I've just acquired four new parcel shelves from Suzuki. They are $200 each + $20 for shipping within the 48 states. If you buy two, I will ship for free (they came packed two per box, so, selling by the pair saves me some trouble :roll: ). Cash price, btw; paypal is extra if you need to use credit card.

I looked for these all over the warehouse network in Japan. I never found any. I contacted Suzuki in Japan looking for these in Hungary and India, no luck. You, Sir, have an UnObtanium.

I scored these in Nagoya

I didn't know the GTi bumper was. But with my sources it was still hard to get.
Please let me know a source so I can get another one.

That's great. I just called Brea (Suzuki NA) and they state there isn't one in their warehouses. I got mine from Japan through Brea. I have a PM to LeonChristian to check South America. Not trying to be a dick but my buddy owns a Suzuki dealership (well, just the parts store now) and the Ex worked there as the manager. I know how to get some parts but the hard to get are....well, hard to get.

PS: The price listed is less than what I paid through Brea from Nagoya.

I had some of those hood insulators, but they didn't sell too well. Not sure why the parcel shelves aren't--I've read many posts where people were looking for them.

Unfortunately out of the thousands that have traipsed across TS there are only a few madmen willing to throw those kinds of funds at their cars. Even some of the madmen have moved on. When I get another art project done, I will be moving a car into the shop and start tearing her apart for some much-needed restoration. I have a flawless parcel shelf but will be hitting you up for one soon
