regie is just envoius about my car & always wanted the front end & the front seats but he can (a) hunt for them or (b) dream about them as if I write my car off I'll definitaley buy a NC or a DC FAIRLANE GHIA & transfer the door trims aswell as the seats as I saw one going for less then 4K with a V8.
