I have made a number of attempts to link the above this afternoon but still no go at present , sorry Phil and Jim I will keep trying . However saw the following on ebay this am , new old stock front section and rear section plus some other body bits , never been used , 5 or 5a? Ebay seller squallyshowers . I can put the ref number on but it is something I have been advised against unless requested . Are they rare to find unused , I am a bit sceptical as why they have not been snapped up as yet . Regards Richard .

Paul do you want to "Invest" in all my New Factory Mouldings ??.
Most SE6a, apart from the rear Quarters which will do 6/6a/6b.
Complete front nose to halfway into wheels, front corners L+ R, etc etc etc.
