Folks, just checking, are these still available or have they now gone?

I assumed so but I had to ask.

I managed to get a set of aftermarket parts online and a spring rebuild set so they'll go back on the car this Friday. Hopefully that will be all!

Yes, I got the plates on ebay. The link is:

I still need other bits so I need to find someone whose breaking a calibra and hope the bits are as good as those already on my car!

sealeysonic,

I know: some bits are relatively easy to get hold of and reasonably priced. And others are just daft!

Of course it cost me more than the back plates: to get to them the hub had to come off and all sorts of other stuff before we could get to the back plates! As a result, the bearings needed changing! My credit card took a hit on that. Oh joy..... :(

Still need to find other bits, especially trim pieces: overhead courtesy reading light, cream leather door cards, sunroof seal, aerial seal, dashboard top piece, handbrake gaiter, wheel arch liners..........the list goes on  :o
