Hi all,

Having just come back from a repairer in regards to having my xb rust repaired and then resprayed. From our discussion it seems I need to find some panels.

I need:

RH & LH Front Guards for XB
RH & LH Front doors for XB (if the LH has holes for mirror, a LH mirror would be good to). <b>These are most important for me to find.</b>
An XB Bonnet which is preferably a <b>GT</b> Item.
And a rear stone tray with <b>Twin</b> rounded exhaust outlets

A set of Extractors to suit a 351 in a XB.

If anyone has any of the above that are rust free or close too please let me know what you have and what your after $'s wise
If your in the Sydney area that would be even better.

Thanks all

Simon

Thanks chris, let me know what you've got. If its a small amount of rust I guess it won't be that bad, well better than what I've got anyway. I'll find out whether XA doors will fit. Can anyone tell me if they will?

Dellboy: Ha, almost. I've got two good doors and a boot. Thats at least half a car.

XA doorhandel's are different to XB.. But they will fit, But the problem is you need 4 XA doors and there harder to get than XB

Pretty sure that all XA-XC ute/panelvan doors are the same as the coupes

So they wont fit sedans regardless of the handle issue

EDIT:makes a bit more sense this time!

Yep Ute/coupe/panelvan doors are the same, but if your fitting a ute/van door to a coupe you need to fit the coupe door glass.

As i said XA/ZF had there own style door handel but XB/ZG & XC/ZH were the same.

ummmm......doesn't sirwen have a four door?? ute etc doors are no good to him then.
if you have a good xa ute/coupe passenger door i'm very interested sideshow.
its a pity you're in sydney sirwen, i have an absolutely mint (no rust or dents whatsoever) xb sedan drivers door you could have, for free. i also have a few good xb/c bonnets, at least one of which is a gt bonnet.
bugger huh?

No argument about the handles mate

Just pointing out that ute doors would be no good to siwen as he has a sedan

Monty what are you doing to me mate???
Its not nice to taunt me like that!!

I'm finding it difficult to find good doors. I've found a few GS/GT bonnets but I haven't checked them over yet.

Question though, are XB and XC doors the same? I now understand that XA's are different so I won't be looking for them.

Also the rear stone trays are hard to come by. Seems everyone has be backed into a stump or similar :(

Thanks for the offers I received so far, unfortunately everyone is in melbourne, adelaide or brisbane. Where are my Sydney comrades?

About 18 months ago I passed on the opportunity to purchase an XB coupe that had been stolen and recovered. It had a perfect body and trashed interior. I'm kickin myself that I didn't buy it. But at least I ended up with the engine from it :)

Allready told you mate I've got a mint rear twin outlet stonetray.
I know apollo, and I'll most likely be getting them off you too, I was just hoping to get one locally because I'm lazy and local is easy.
I'll get back to you next week.

I found a GS bonnet, now just doors.

Hey sirwen, getting it delivered to your door is about as lazy as it come's :p . But you should find one in sydney somewhere, if not I'll email you some pics.

Getting it delivered to my door is the problem. I'm gone all day and the couriers leave these stupid letter under the door telling me to pick it up at their depot, but they're only open until 5 weekdays.
One time they put the letter under the door and told me to pick up the package at hoxton park. I live in parramatta and hoxton park is miles away.

I'll most likely get you to send the package to the smash repairers when I drop the car off.
Any idea what the freight cost will be?
Have you sent things like doors before? If so what type of company do you use? A courier or something else? Is it expensive to get them shipped up?

Still need doors. Any one got some?

I have sent large things on freight before, and I work in castlemaine so most of the panels that come to the panel shop have to be freighted anyways. I would use someone larger, like startrack express, not to sure on the cost though.

There is a GT shop in Melbourne that has XA and XC guards. No XB guards im affraid. I'm trying to get hold of LH/RH front guards for a XB Coupe.
