    Yeah, I thought that would be the case. However being a later model I hoped something might be around.

    I recently replaced a lot of the plastics inside my 205, and just about every piece was purchased OS through eBay. You just have to find sellers willing to ship to Australia. Suprisingly the prices including shipping were not too bad, as there seems an abundance of 205 interior pieces available.

    ok, everyone has their price. Three ounces for the dash pinnacle and two ounces for the lower surround. Postage extra. I suggest getting insurance.

    I'm not here to start a fight and I love this forum but this site use to be about helping out other members, not trying to out do them. I understand that he also needs the same parts but where is the respect?

    Anyway....my 2 cents.

    I also think it was a bit rude of Langers to suggest a better offer. If I did have one for sale I would only offer it to Micah.

    Yes, that was rather rude and not at all in keeping with the usually helpful and generous spirit of this forum. I'm hoping maybe it was a joke?

    As for finding those parts, I have to recommend ebay. If you hop on ebay UK you usually get a lot more results than searching from OZ ebay with 'worldwide' option clicked. I have found that nearly all UK sellers will post to Australia when asked.

    Micah: agreed 100%. You were in the right and don't need to apologise or justify your comments.

    BTW I'll offer my left kidney and my first-born child for the little plastic triangle and a full-leather driver's seat in VGC.

    Thanks for the support guys.

    The main problem i have found on u.k ebay is all the trim is generally out of a earlier series 205 and is dark grey, not black.

    Do you think you could spray it black or would i eventually chip off?

    Haha, keeping with the theme, i think 205lover<3 dibs the triangle if one arises.
    Also, How did you know i have full leather seats?

    Hi Micah,
    I have used the plasticare dye solution available from ebay on the external trim - and it turned that from pale grey to black.

    However the problem may then be that you would have 2 shades of black in the car!

    i often think how hard would it be to make a mold & construct a dash out of fibreglass or carbon fibre (expensive though).

    Original-no, good looking - maybe.

    Eg. http://www.track-monkey.co.uk/2058v.htm

    food for thought.

    I've experimented with VHT SP942 Black Satin Vinyl Dye (bought from Repco) on a few dash pieces such as the vents below the gearbox, with good results.

    There's also another dye called Plasticare, but you have to paint that one on. The VHT is an aerosol can, you just spray 3 times within 1 hour according to the instructions and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.





    On the subject of carbon - yes, I've thought about this too. I'm sure these guys could probably do it:

    http://streamlinecarbon.com/v2/produ...e/peugeot-205/

    There's also this:

    http://www.galwaycarbon.com/car-parts/peugeot-205/

    And this:

    http://www.ddt-production.fr.st/




    And there's also these guys right here in OZ who could do you a custom carbon fibre dash:

    http://www.ccubed.com.au/

    I think this deserves a new thread: unusual or modified dashes in a 205!

    Thanks for the suggestions guys.
    Looks like uk eBay/grey dash pieces with vinyl/plastic dye is the way to go. Pity I just missed out on centre piece due to time difference.
    More trolling eBay for me.

    Carbon fibre dash would be sweet but sounds expensive.
    Maybe we could all pull together and do a group order?
