Some new are available from the UK, a friend here in Nashville pulled his off and painted them, was a pretty good match to the new ones... Maybe if we ever get together (ahem) you can check out his.

Brent -

I just ordered these from johncraddockltd.co.uk. Had to search by part #PRC8253, but they appear to be available. I think Rimmerbros may also have them.

Hopefully, shipping won't be too bad...

Should you place an order for RR parts from overseas I may need some parts as well... Just saying.

Some more progress on the body. The paint shop is taking their time for sure but also doing a lot more for me than was initially included in the price (at no additional cost). Found a few more rust spots to deal with too. They have removed all trim, bumpers, glass, good, cowl, tailgate, etc. I think it will look great when done. Just need to sort those last few parts. (Speaker covers and seat plinths).

So why not take 3 more minutes and take off the rear corners and the end cap brackets?

One what. For what I am paying I am pretty happy with their level of effort.

They spent a lot of time on the roof and cowel due to significant hail damage. Given the level of effort they are doing I am more and more pleased with the price.

I hope that is the case as it will be taking over duty as my daily driver. Want it as nice as I can stand to make it. I have a 110 for family adventures.

This was the wrong part number; so disappointed when I opened my package from the UK today. I must have been smoking something, as this is for the D1. The correct part number for the RRC is STC2866, which are NLA.

Looks like this is a candidate for the 3D printer. I found one on fleabay offered by congleton, but it looks rough.
