    Hi all.

    I thought I'd ask the question...What do you need that you are unable to source ?

    We have been on this board for a year now (yippee!) and have come across the 328 mirror switches and that kind of thing but there must be loads of components that you simply can't get.

    It would be interesting to hear about unavailable parts, the models they fit and the last known source and likely demand. You never know....

    Cheers.

    Hey thanks for asking! My 1977 308GTB needs window switch trim bezels only.
    Do I have to buy the whole unit?

    Also, my rear hood latch plastic trim is broken (subject of thread on here).
    I could buy the whole latch assembly, if need be.

    The only other rare part I've seen discussed is the early style engine hood support, that travels on a spring loaded cable. The traveller part is plastic where it molds to the support rod. I've repaired mine but would replace if available.

    I've shared with many folks how your firm has made ownership MUCH easier of late.

    The little rectangular interior lights on my GT4 (both on the doors and on the headliners)

    I have been eyeing the porsch 911 equivalent. They sort of look about the same size.

    The one thing that early 308 owners are always looking for is "the early style engine hood support that travels on a spring loaded cable"...


    At some point we need to chip in together and have a run of these made!

    Well, it's a complicated little assy, with wheels and axles and plastic BS.

    I'm REAL careful with mine after repair. Of course carrying a piece of wood adds to mystique of ownership. Same tool can tension alternator belt!

    I use mahogany. Left over from my church's $1.8M pipe organ. Great resonance!

    Speedy,

    Saw some of those "push in smoke to light cigarette" things at VIP Automotive. Maybe what they have can work as a sub? Just trying to help.

    Speed,

    Yes, the actual LIGHT that appears at the rear/bottom of the door itself. It lights up when you open the door so oncoming cars car see the door is open. Also, the pin switches are MUCH NEEDED!!!!!!!!

    For the early hood prop for the 308, if you need the top hinge peice, T.Rutlands has reproduced the plastic part in metal. It is now quite durable.

    Oh, and while we are at it...

    63011800 INT BOOT RELEASE HANDLE
    Unit price: £70.60
    Quantity required: 1
    This part supersedes: 60086105, 60297207, 61756700, 62498100

    I concur! 308 door pin switches.

    Also note that early 308 steering wheels are also NLA. Mine's fine, but it might be nice to "refresh" the leather if the price was right!

    New owner of an 83 308.
    After I bought car and before delivery, dealer replaced the broken wiper switch (on column) with an aftermarket switch installed on bottom of dash - then tossed the broken switch. Not sure it could have been repaired, but I would have liked to try... Need to get it back to original config - No luck finding the OEM part!

    Interesting stuff here - hope I can add something!
