Hi trying to locate the strip / trim that sits under the headlight between them and the bumper.

If anyone has one let me know please.

Thanks

Mark

I have part numbers for you - 

  • Chrome Trim - 09287847 (Opel Part 13 24 261)
  • Black Trim - 90038017 (opel Part 13 24 266)

A very quick online search showed up a couple of places you could try in Mainland Europe for this.

(The moulding trim is found in Group 13 - Cooling. Not the first place you would look for it!)

Hi Mantaray, is it the chrome or black? Ideally I would like black.

Thanks

Never been to Rhyl but if there's a lesser spotted piece of trim I may be tempted.

Yes, the one just by the bridge, it does a mean curry😀

I will check how many I have in the garage. I think I've got three good ones. Two silver from early cars and one black.

Might be a good piece to have remanufactured actually, as it always gets bent out of shape and they are tricky to straighten out.

Another one added to the list to investigate!

What do you reckon Chris? One to dip our toe in the water with regards to remanufacture?

Plenty of panels to look into remanufacture before small bits of trim that are easily available second hand

Fair point Kev but the second hand ones are usually scrap and for the relatively small cost of set up, I'm sure there would be more of a demand for these cheaper parts than for rear quarter panels. 

It was just a thought to test the process really so that we can see how it goes.

I think remanufacturing  bits is pretty good to all of us. But I think there should be a priority to full rubber sets (weatherstrips) for both doors.

Its near to impossible to find a FULL rubber set new.

In my opinion to have the car completely DRY is a top priority and then to be  beautiful

A leaking door seal passes the MOT, a missing crucial panel sends a car to the scrappers.  You only need seals AFTER you have a floor.  Before that the water runs out the bottom anyway

A question re this trim strip. Was it factory fitted to Exclusive's when they were new? As I have seen some restorations with it fitted and some without with varying degrees of success as it does leave a bit of a unsightly gap on some depending on how the front spoiler and grill have been re-attached.

Its true ! ! !
The Greek "MOT" called KTEO is  much more different!
Even you miss a wing you are still on legal on the road..
But if there is water in the car then in 1 year the floor will be gone.

So to prevent the floor to rust (from the inside) i suggested to have our Mantas Waterproofed at first.
