Hi there,
I'm new to this forum so please excuse my info begging!
I've just bought a 1979 3.0 SC targa which I think originates from the states (smog pump). It's in pretty good condition as it's been half restored, suspension, stearing etc already fully overhauled.
I want to do a simpathetic restoration not hardcore nut and bolt as it will be regularly driven.
The main problem is I have to replace the front wings and the oil cooler lines. Can someone advise me the best place to get them? Obviously they are astronomically priced and m looking to make some savings!!
I'm traveling to the USA at the end of the month so maybe I can smuggle some goodies back!!
Any advise gladly welcomed
Best regards
Steve

Probably will be your best bet...not sure how you'd fit a pair of front wings in the overhead luggage compartment Grin

Use Kontact in South Norwood, they source all genuine parts at trade prices and support all of the air cooled cars.

I don't think the prices of the oil lines from them are too bad from memory
