Need parts in UK

Post by Barry Hamilton » Wed Sep 02, 2009 2:30 am

I haven't had any luck in my search for
1: A fuel (gas) tank, and
2: A driver's side (RHD!) front wing (fender).
I'm in North East Wales, and anything I've found in scrapyards is totally rusted-out.

Hi Barry, I saw an episode of that show "Grand Designs" and the owner of the house being built was in Wales and was cruising around in a Gold Tercel Wagon.

You may want to get in touch with some of our French members as they usually have a few parts around. could be a good excuse for a trip to the Mediterranean? Good luck mate.

I can find these thing for you in good condition here, but I think the shipping would make it not worth it. Is the RHD fender different than a LHD fender, or it it just that the "driver's side" for you is opposite of the rest of the world?

Half of the world drives on the "wrong" side of the road.

Hi Petros.
Yes - my car's right-hand drive, so the fender I need is for your car's passenger side (front).
I'd imagine that postage to UK would be quite expensive, for the bulk rather than the weight, I suppose.
Kind regards.
Barry.

shipping cost might be expensive ( depend on size) or reasonable , the fender is very very light weight when I took it apart , head light heavier than fender, if your car rust free then it might be hard to find fender in Europe.
