As part of my retirement activities, I purchased an incomplete XB Coupe for which I can just about purchase all replacement parts with the exception of the body chrome/steel mouldings. i.e. front, side, rear windows, fronts grille etc. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where/how I can obtain.
Thanks

Thanks XB Coupe. After seeing your beasts photo I'm picturing of how mine will hopefully look. If it turns out half as good I'll be over the moon.
By the way - how do you remove the chrome from the front & rear bumpers so as you can paint?
Would love to ring and have a chat with you, what is the protocol for forum members to get in touch with each other i.e. passing on phone numbers? Dont want to get in hot water by doing something wrong.
For all others interested, will be taking progressive photos throughout the project. Retirement 11 weeks away, Whooopeeeeeee - who's counting.
