    Default Help needed Africa 12G

    Hey everyone, I'm continuing the quest to gather the last few parts needed for the Africa 12G LBJ-401 before it goes to paint - I've recently had good success getting a few bits and pieces. I'm currently working with a company in England who specialises in vintage rally stickers and I almost have all of them, the assistance I need is photos of the side of the car and even an aerial shot, Bob Watson has been kind enough to send me what he has but I'm desperately needing side on shots from both the left and right, I have the Australia across the roof, the rally plates, the "AUS" with the RAA logo, Dave Cavanagh has been a great help with the 1/4 panel Reno diamonds- I also have the Esso, cibie and Russ Stuckey has helped with the Dunlop stickers. I have been trying to get the pics since I bought the car from Steve in 1980 so any help/real suggestions are truly appreciated. I also need front floor mats(12G). Thanks heaps people:-)

    This may be a bit of a long shot, but you may be able to find a front rubber/plastic mat in one of the very early 12s. The version with LHD wiper sweep, these had the rubber mat covered by carpet on the Australian assembled cars. The trans bulge cover is the same on a 17TS/G, the rubber wheel arch covers are not usually fitted to the early Aussie assembled cars (which have the rubber mats under the carpet) so may have to be sourced from a 15/17.

    I wonder whether Rod Slater, here in Perth, just might have photos? He runs Eurocars and is easy to find. Just give him a ring.

    Sounds as if the car is going to look sensational.
