What year is the car?
I'm assuming it's a facelift (91 onwards) and if so I have the indicators brand new and boxed.
Should also have a clock.

Welcome aboard.

Where are you located btw ?.
1993 2.0 CD(X)i Auto Estate (Rioja Red very little tin worm & reasonable paint).
RIP - 1992 2.0 CDXi Manual Estate (Spectral Blue with far too much tin worm, now only parts).

Old age means wondering: Do I really have to struggle to become an expert in something I might never need to do again.

Hi Paul

You'll get more LC specific help on ABS as there are only a few of us on here that have LCs but whilst you wait for forum access I can tell you the LC rad is specific to them. A GSi or Senny rad can be made to fit but is slightly smaller in size & core so with the known cooling issue of an LC (not an issue as such but you don't want it overheating) you may be better off going for a re-core. We did do a group buy on ABS about 8 years ago but they were all taken.

Headrests whilst not LC specific, the colour is. You could get standard black ones & have then re-trimmed or coloured using dye & get the seats done at the same time to tidy up any scuffs on the bolsters.

Regards

Mike

Thanks for the reply Mike,

I am getting the rad sorted , its getting a re core.
I am trying to join ABS sent payment and e mailed forms monday but as yet not heard anything back.
Think i have sorted some head rests out , i have no idea where the ones out of the car have gone , it has got some weird ones in it.
A few other little job still to do and i will be happy.

Cheers
Paul

I did reply to you on PH that I'd received the payment (I'm treasurer) & have informed the membership secretary & forum manager (both are also on PH & here) so you may well have access later today.

Whats the build number of your car & we'll find some history on it?
