www.toyotaparts.ie are pretty good. They will get parts for Irish domestic or Japanese domestic models. Just need to give them your chassis number. I've bought a few things from them before.

Another option would be to get the parts from Joe the MR2 breaker over in Tuam, although they might be a little weathered or need cleaning up. Those strips are pretty resilient though.

Re: Project Dark Lemon 10 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 23
Ok so I was looking at the door that I got down to the bare metal and I am thinking I do not need to put a layer of filler on the car, I forgot its not being sprayed its being wrapped so all I have to d ois just make sure its flat and has no MAJOR bumps or dents, so Im going to just spray the door down with the spray putty give it a good 3 coats and it should be fine then , so I dont need to go over it with layers of filler , so heres the updates for tonight , got the door sanded and the first layer of skim I had to sand down and then ran out of sand paper
