    If its for the Grand-Prix then more chance of bits, see them quite often. The have a GM parts store there which will certainly do the modern stuff.

    Yes, it is one of the front nosecone grilles for the Firebird. I am pretty sure it needs the left one but will need to check. I managed to get one already. Amazingly a guy in the UK was selling one on eBay a couple of years back. It looks virtually brand new!
    Yeah, its seems logical that bits for the Grand Prix would be much easier to locate over there. That doesn't really need anything apart from a heater control knob that's fallen apart. Although I haven't investigated why the left rear leccy window isn't working yet.

    Thanks Dave. They come out at about £92 Inc tax, ex shipping. Not too bad for a pair really when you see what some charge for just one. I know I have one already but it's probably better to buy them as a pair as there may be slight differences in the moulding and finish.

    Dan,

    Price up this little lot.

    TCA004 - Lower Control Arms, DOM, On-car Adjustable, Polyurethane & Rod End Combo | 1993 - 2002 F-Body | Lower Control Arms | BMR Suspension - High Performance Suspension & Chassi

    Add koni adjustable and to save money I would pull the front upper and lower control arms, clean and paint with Por-15 after acid etching and add new ball joints and stock rubber bushings. If you prefer to spend ££ then get the lower control arms in your post.

    Perhaps you could get them shipped to Dan whilst he is over there?

    Thanks Dan, that's kind of you . I know you'd said before about bringing bits back, but having seen the suspension parts you'll be bringing back for yourself, I didn't like to ask about the grilles. Yes, they are quite light, but I want to be sure you have enough space for yourself. Maybe order your parts first and we can check you have space for the grilles after. I'll measure up and let you know how big they are.
