I've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.

If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.

That sounds interesting. I could do with a pair of front wings for my DS and I'm off work that week.

Hi,

 

I'm still looking for the Rancho bulkhead spotlights. 

 

If you could keep an eye out that'd be grand.

 

Thanks in advance.

I thought I'd add the poster, 250 stalls does sound like a lot...

 

I wonder if there will be anyone selling Norev diecast :-)?

I’m sorted for spotlights (sorry I didn’t turn out to have decent spare spares for you Holbeck) but some Rancho sill repair panels or roof rack tubes would go down a treat.

In fact any Rancho bits, really, except wheels. Got wheels.


Oh, and a Renault 16 brake light switch please.

Thanks!

Last one I went to had plenty of good used DS wings. There was one stall displaying new wings, doors, bonnets, looked like you could build a whole DS from what they were showing. They could well be at this event.

Yes there will :)   Don't expect rock bottom prices though. If you do come don't be all British and not haggle over prices.

What's the part number on the R16 switch ?  Not sure on Rancho bits, but if I spot a Rancho specific dealer I'll get their details.

Don’t worry about the R16 brake pedal switch, thanks, when I looked for part numbers it turns out they’re readily available from Franzose.de. But contact details for a Rancho specialist would be A-MAZE-ING.

If you go, that is - no obligation obvs. You’re a gent for offering.

I do indeed. This time hopefully myself.

 

On a different note, since the R16 may* be fully occupied, I had concerns regarding available space for hauling stuff back in sufficient quantities,

such as doors, wings, wine, Gauloises and most of all, warped French plastic in daft colours,

until Ghosty came up with the solution - why not borrow the roofrack I flogged to fellow R16 brother in arms Crooner of this parish.

 

Thank you, Ghosty.

 

However, I wouldn't be a true GGG member, if I didn't say that we will acquire a roofrack at the venue, should the requirement arise.

 

For the uninitiated not living in the parallel universe of R16 ownership, due to it's roof design and lack of gutters, only a bespoke R16 roofrack can be utilised.

On an unrelated* note, anyone wants some W123 Merc or Aussie Leyland bits?

Sodding hell I'm a dolt! It just didn't register!!!! Now working out if I have munchkin or not - so how much place I'll have in the car!!!!

Sorry for stupidity (and fatigue I have to say - this heat I'm getting a couple of hours a night at the minute....)

 

Shall be there with bells on.... thanks for the heads up.

 

EDIT - If anyone can't make it and I can snaffle anything - they can sit with me in Brussels until I come over to UK next time via Eurostar - they're getting used to me lugging parts back n forth.....

If anything Cit CX S2-related shows up, I'm interested. Particularly the triple LCD display that sits above the centre console. Also an offside bi-optic headlamp with clean internal reflectors (yes I know it'll be LHD, but it's the reflectors I'm interested in, not the outer lens)....

We'll deliver you to that ferry, drive to Dover, take the ferry to Calais and drive down to pick you up from that ferry.
