Pratts!

If you're ordering from the USA, this is the dealer who is very good: www.lithiatoyotaparts.com/partlocator/index.cfm?siteid=215542

The parts manager is an MR2 fanatic (helps) although be cautious with the USA as they had different engine models (5sfe vs our 3sge) and also what we call a 1992 reg can be a 1993 or 1994 over there.

They do stock parts for MR2, but the MK2 wasn't sold in the US after 1993/4 so they wont have it listed in 1996. If the part you are looking for was common between the revs then you could put in an earlier year.

What do you mean by front bumper trim, like the badges or the lower part of the bumper.

I have one of them, but it has a couple of broken bolts in it that would need to be drilled out.

I took my bumper off the other day and the same thing happened 3-4 of the bolts snapped in the black bar.

You can have it for free if you want it, as I got the bumper off Spidey here for free.

I am in Dublin today if you want me to drop it to you, PM'd you my number.

Fair play on the progress - can't wait to see the final product. An ETA on project completion?

Spent the whole evening with teh car and forgot my camera I left it in my mams house, but I got the paint stripped off the roof and got started on the left hand side of the car, used paint remover and a scraper as it seems easier and causes less scratching to the metal underneath , learning as I go , tomorrow il take the pics of what I have done so far, but its coming together slowly , at the end of next week im dropping the bonnet and a few other bits up to sign express to get wrapped so il see what the yellow looks like by next week , gona drop up the bonnet the rear window surround and maybe the boot with the spoiled and then just put em upstairs in the garage til they are ready to go on ,
