Highline parts needed UK based

Post by Hoarder » Sun May 24, 2020 12:06 am

Hi,

Looking for the following parts for a 89 highline

Pair of front wings
Exterior shadowline trim
Black leather interior
Carpet
Standard exhaust or will even consider a custom stainless system

Located in West Midlands but can travel for the right parts.

Old interior and chrome trim will be for sale once I have found replacements

Thank you

I wonder if you might try to convert chrome side strips into shadow line simply by painting them? Or are OE versions anodised?

That would be good but my only worry would be trying to remove some of the chromework without damaging it.

The metal part (whether chrome or otherwise) cannot be separated from the rubber part - it actually forms the "backbone" of the strip over which the plastic appears to be moulded. So I think it would have to be a paint job.
