Hi everybody!

Been away for a while but now I'm back in business.

at the time I'm rebuilding my little red who had some "roof problems" :?

Thought I could drive sitting on it!!! Guess not! :shock:

But am having lots of trouble finding body parts (front wings and lights). Don't mind paying postage from anywhere in the world... just need the parts desperately!!

any one can help?
cheers
Fred

Hi, I'm am not sure what part you are looking for in your reference to "Wings" also I'm not sure which lights you are looking for. A picture of the damaged part or a retouched picture of a car with the broken/damaged or missing part circled, might help me and others see of we can help, Good luck, Jonathan

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

Phil and Ed, Guilty as charged :( :( :( , I really do need to get off my lard (Extreme lower Back :D ) butt, and figure out how to 1) Use My new camera (Had it a year, have yet to take it out of the box :( ) Upload and reduce size of pictures, (Thanks to yours posts, I do plan to use photobucket), and post the darn things, (Maybe this can by my new years resolution???)
Thanks for the much needed kick in the pants, :D, Jonathan
P.S. I'll even PM you when I Get My 1st picture up :D :D :D, You can help celebrate my arrival (However grudgingly) into the 21 century, :D

we have those parts
but the shipping cost to your country (Portugal) the price would not be worth it
unless you would have a connection in This country USA.?
.
.have you tried the Aussies ?

I bought two front wings from http://www.mekonomen.no under a year ago. Delivery time was 24hrs since they were in stock.
Postage was included in the price. To make them fit on my 84 model, I had to cut bottom part of them. Not a big problem when I realized it.

Am I correct in assuming that you still need Headlights and corner lights? You might want to check with Teamswift member "Beau's" Parts for sale thread , It appears from the pictures, that he might have both headlights,and the passenger side corner light, Best wishes, Jonathan.
