do you guys just have brand new spare parts laying at home? lol
i find it amazing, and i envy you fellas for having access to all these neat new bits and pieces!
im getting ready to buy a totaled Ti pretty soon. front end is crushed but engine, gearbox, rear end and interior are in good shape. it will be a donor for many parts to be changed in the future!
I was lucky MGJohn, kept that engine splash shield in his shed. My earlier attempts of searching for an engine splash shield proved fruitless. I looked on Rimmerbros and it was NLA (no longer available), searched on the internet - ebay e.t.c and couldn't find any. I decided to message John, and he had one.
Some parts, like the screws for the engine splash, shield, I was lucky because, even though Rimmerbros didn't have them in stock, they ordered them for me, from Japan.
For other parts, we usually raid the scrap yards if a 600ti (for specific Ti parts) or any other R600 (for other parts) happen to be in a yard. It is a good idea to buy the totalled ti that you are buying for parts, as it will help when you need parts.
For parts that are still available, from motor-factors, we just buy from motor-factors. Sometimes we decide to manufacture some parts at home, like this power steering cooler for example.
