Hi all

I am looking for a bonnet - ideally blue
for my paseo and want to bring it back
to it's former glory after a slight 'rain deer collision' ...

There's other parts I could be interested in 'if clean'
but if no bonnet it's not worth discussing those yet.

Hi Steve, I have a Tropicana bonnet in good nick if you're after one? It's in my garage ready to go. Located in Taunton, Somerset.

hi 'Galliano' - thanks for that certainly interested - if I can't find 'blue'.

Whilst you're not local I do go that way a lot when
on the road...

What sort of money would you want?

I'm not sure how easy it would be for you to transport back. However probably looking at 40. It's clean with very minimal marks. It was a well looked after car. No rust just small chips and light scratches.

Hi Galliano,

OK I've decided to sort out some minor parts then I will re-spray
most of the vehicle and take some dings out.  Asides new tyres
I aim to keep the car 'pristine'...

Also need:

1. Bonnet as originally listed and discussed.

OTHER:
2. Front 'Toyota' Badge.

3. Wing Mirror - Drivers Side:
Can also consider CLEAN Drivers side wing mirror
as one I purchased from ebay had badly done 'stuck on glass'
and was not in very good condition.

QUESTION:
Is it possible to remove / swap / snap out the glass-part from
one wing mirror to another?

4. Vinyl "PASEO" on rear of car
Do you or any one have a good 'face on' picture of the PASEO back sticker
Mine has almost disappeared so thinking to recreate it..
of course, I could make you some more...I'll use top grade
vinyl with 7 or 10+ year life expectancy.

5. Back TOYOTA 'boot-key Badge'
I have mine but its snapped off (design fault I think)
and can't see easy way to re-attach. Was thinking I could easily
hack something to use magnet system but prefer a 'new' unit if
not too difficult to swap out key barrels??

6. FRONT LIGHT(S)
One of mine after the head on with the 'rain-deer'
has developed a leak and the reflector is rusting away.
Surprised it passed the MOT.
The one I really need is passenger side, but probably prefer
a clean pair.

BR

Steve

Hi Steve,

As previously mentioned I can do bonnet. I'm fairly sure I can do the front Toyota badge also. As for wing mirror, I'm not sure what condition items I have in the garage but if I haven't got one Lost Cause might. It is possible to remove the glass somehow, but I think it takes brute force and ignorance to get it right. Something I've not tried.

The rear Paseo emblem is still available from Toyota and if I remember rightly is about 12. The swivel boot lock I have a few in stock. And lastly when it comes to headlights, I'm sure I can make a good pairing.

Sam.
