    Rare spares?

    Here's another e-mail from the guy in the US. I don't know what bits he has or his prices and as importantly the cost of freight from there although some of the "Yank Tank" grey importers often advertise that they have spare space in containers so who knows.
    May be worth an e-mail if you're stuck for a bit to complete a restoration

    "After 26 years of working on Citroens and saving
    everything I had room for, I'm losing the room to
    keep everything I've saved. Twenty six years ago
    today (no foolin', and three years after the last
    car was brought into the US by Citroen) I opened
    the doors of Garage Courtier in Dallas to service
    Citroen, and eventually Peugeot as well. Today I
    am announcing that we, like many other companies
    in America are being forced to "down size". We are
    going to keep servicing Citroen and Peugeot, only
    in half the space that we've had before, therefore
    we have to get rid of half the things we've collected
    over the years. As you may have noticed, I have put
    a few of my own personal cars up for sale, but the
    things that are really eating up the spare are sheet
    metal! Fenders for D's (two and four headlight),
    doors,
    trunk lids, deck lids, tail gates, belly pans, and
    more. These were salvaged from cars that "didn't make
    it" but had signed their donor cards so that others
    might benefit. The next biggest pile are engines,
    engine parts (especially SM's) and transmissions.
    There are used carbs, starter, alternator and
    hydraulic
    cores. You name it from Traction to CX, Ami to GS,
    2cv to BX, if we have saved it, it's for sale at
    any reasonable price offered ! Please don't make me
    send this stuff off to become "The New Steel" !

    Sincerely,

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!
