    True and you just reminded me that I should message the buyer. Those color matched plastic side trim would be perfect for my 88

        Check out my vert build thread. The 772 metal valance is the hardest part to find. Figure $2k for ECS repro bumpers and valance. Then you’ll want Euro smilies..

          Excellent resource to see what the entire conversion entails to do it properly with new parts. :up:

          Now if you're a true R3V member, you get used bumpers and ignore the rest of the parts and get it done for as cheap as possible haha

            I think I’m almost a true blue R3V, almost.

              So should I really get rid of the original diving boards and go with the euro spec or plastic. I do like the newer front and rear ends but at the expense of originality?

                Just make sure it’s COMPLETELY reversible

                    Don’t like the yellow lights but probably can peel the film. Lotta miles but good looking ride. I’d probably get rid of most if not all of the stickers. Interested to see price on this one.

                      Nothing an afternoon with a heat gun can't fix though.

                      Who spends money to do that to a street car.

                              Oh boy, strap in, this should be interesting. 56,000 miles and looks clean. Maybe the owner watched the last one push over $21,000 and is trying to catch lightning in a bottle again...unless $21,000 is the new norm??

                                Doubt it will go that high. Convertible fatness and a wheezy M42 are not exactly a desirable combination, at least it's a 5 speed.
