Do you know who has #188?? I have seen it on FF somewhere but not sure where! Are you finding it easy to find the spares?? HAven't got any spare globes have you?? Yeah right, I know!
What I have been doing is looking at a number of sites and picking what I want. I then collate all of these parts into a list and I then took it into a local supplier (Superoo) and got him to quote/supply all of the parts.
The fellow that I bought the car was basically full of BS when it came to parts availability, that is, he said nothing was available but he could get it for me at a certain price, if you know what I mean. An example of this was the seat material, he said it would cost me $2,500, I bought from Mark (Falcon Cobra Car Club) for $1,000 - go figure.
What I am trying to say is that everything is available, you just need to know where to look. One problem has been that the XC is not a GT and therefore parts (repro) are not as readily available. However, as these cars are gaining in popularity, more stuff is becoming available. An example of this is the bonnet scoops, front and rear spoilers (Bathurst option as well as normal one).
If you can get me the locall clubs email it would be greatly appreciated. If you want an excel spread sheet of what I am getting and what it is costing me and suppliers, let me know. Sorry, I don't know who has #188. Globes, shouldn't be a problem. Try these two sites;
