    Yaaaay another 12.

    There are a couple of handy shops if you just want everything delivered;
    https://www.renault12shop.com/

    Many here have bought stuff from this guy (based on the Netherlands)

    There is also this shop, Mecaparts
    Sommaire R12

    Again many have bought from either place without trouble.

    Now. Pads / Rotors / wheel bearings, swing arm bushes, trailing arms, I've been able to get all that locally at known French Shops.

    WA:
    "Ray" (Can someone link his shop, I confess I don't know it. Shoji / Ray?)

    Victoria:
    French Connection (Supports this site)
    https://www.facebook.com/FrenchConect/

    NSW:
    Colliers Automotive (NSW Legend)
    https://www.colliersauto.com.au/

    Actually rear trailing arms I bought complete for about $60 last time from Greek Ebay.

    and Yaaaa another 12

    Works: 1999 Volvo S40 T4, (has Choo Choo's)
    Playing: R12, SuperPos, thinks It's a race car.

    If you want to upgrade to vented front discs and calipers (R17 or 12 Gordini) I'm pretty sure the ones I've just got are already surplus to my needs. Need a full overhaul.
    Bowie can tell you all about the brake upgrade.

    You can't get trailing arm bushes on their own but have to replace the complete trailing arm.
    But the trailing arms are available from the stores mentioned earlier and are relatively cheap.
    Even eBay and Aliexpress have them (and the other parts you mentioned) from time to time.
    You can get most mechanical bits for a 12 but you might have to go to an international seller.

    The rear upper swing arm bushings are the same as the front lower wishbone bushes.

    Trailing arms come with bushes and they are replaceable if you really want to, but you'll have to do the legwork and find what fits.

    All R12 bushings are available from Powerflex/Superpro in Nolathane and can be found (with a bit of luck) gathering dust on the shelves even at Supercheap. They can be ordered online as well. They will not list R12 on the designation but if you have the numbers go by that. I have given the numbers on the forum some time ago.

    Front wheel bearings are nothing special, just take one out to your local friendly bearing shop and they'll find an equivalent.

    Brake discs and pads are again nothing special. I would take one to the local Repco and try my luck.

    If you want to change to vented front brakes, it's a good idea but the discs will be harder to find. You will also need the callipers (or at least the calliper frame? bracket? whatsamacallit for one of the vented disc versions used on R17 has a separable calliper - you do of course need the same calliper version on your R12 so you can separate the part with the piston from the "bracket" and use it).

    I think the Op is a lady who is very new to AF so probably not that familiar with the search function here, nor looking to turn it into a 12 Gordini replica. She posted on RCCA Facebook page originally.
