    Hi Mate,
    I sent you a direct message - do you know how to access them?
    I'm in Hobart, own a restored Ceylon CS and just bought a project CSL.

    i cant believe how lucky i have been, i made an offer on the car Wes got from WA, which i was obviously unsuccessful, then i went to look at a car and got a lead on a damaged shell.

    it turns out it was damaged back in the 1980's and was stripped and then left behind a garage. i am now the owner and will be looking for a lot of parts from glass, interior trim, exterior trim, basically everything. a donor car would be ideal if anyone knows of a rusty car. the resto has already started

    Looking forward to following this thread. Once I have a better idea of what are actually 'spare parts' you are free to pick over them.
    You may struggle for a donor car in Australia. That said there was a red CS with a new motor on gumtree for about 50K
    By the time you have to source all the parts individually it might actually be a good option.
    Have you considered putting the VIN up here. Somebody must know your new car.

    the vin is 2285374. i doubt many people know of it as it was imported from the UK damaged and has sat in the same place ever since.

    Wes, when you know what spares you have let me know as i will need everythi g you have.
