Great idea!

Bumpers are needed, in real metal. Only fiberglass are available now

One thing that could be reproduced is the FIA Spoiler

304 stainless would be a nice material for new bumpers! Good ductility, polish up nice and never have the chrome flake off.

Ute tail lights I've seen new for sale but not coupe.

For Coupe 1/4 windows Seals. That is a instant money making right there.
There is a bunch of 1/4 seals for sedan, ute but none for coupe.
Quality front windshield seals for coupe, good enough to take the trim. most reproduction are hard or impossible to fit the trim.
And finally Dash. What can be said of that, that would fit all 1200 from ute, sedans to coupe. But that is too much to ask I guess.

Howdy,
My 2 cents worth . . . . . .

Reproduction parts are a great idea.

But you need the market for them.

Most of the rubbers for 1200's including Coupes are available from Rare Spares in Australia.

I sold a pair of Repo 1/4 window rubbers and door seals for the coupe a couple of months ago.
I had to export them overseas to find buyers.

I still have a coupe front window rubber and repo front guards and bonnet that I could not find buyers for.

If your making you parts for the love of it, that is one thing.

But if your trying to make a living in the repo world
you need a market for your parts to make the effort worth while.

I have know people to make repo parts by advertising a build date and price,
then only going ahead with the build if they get enough people willing to put up a deposit for the parts.

Cheers
Geoff

Howdy lcgarcia98

You should have the packaging from the pair of 1/4 window seals I sent you.

They contain the part numbers for Rare Spares in Australia.

Google them and look on there web site for the part numbers and prices.

I'm sure they will ship world wide.

Cheers,
Geoff

I think they only sell metre lengths and you make your own and supaglue the ends together they seem to list something about 3/4 of the way down the page @ $11.00 Au a metre.It appears you need 2.5 metres per window.
