I could use a few small things (seat switches, PS visor, etc).

Yep, pretty hard to find so I'm surprised no one has jumped on the sets for sale here. Took me forever to find mine.

I can't stop laughing either. Must be pure genius. Giddy Up!

Salvage yards

I bought 6 boosts last month for $50 each from local salvage yards. There is a web site that you can search for parts. Its www.car-part.com. Search under Disco parts.
Cheers

Very cool.

On there they're not called Boost, they're called:

(16x7), alloy (5 spoke), fluted spokes, square relief

The local yard that got most of the clunkers only got 3 rovers, two of them freelanders, and they put all the wheels on a pallet to be melted down. Usually they sell them to refinishers but they were flooded all the sudden and the refinisher said STOP SENDING THESE FUCKING UGLY WHEELS UP HERE!
