Hi all

Sorry I've been so vacant on here. Progress on 5 door 99 turbo is going well, with welded sills and now a single outer wheel arch on the drivers side rear (opposed to the rotten one tacked on top of an even more rotten one, and iced like a birthday cake with filler).

However now I've reached a bit of a snag. Rear upper spring and bump stop seat on the right hand side - it's rotten. If I absolutely have to, I'll try and make a new one but it'll take hours and will never be as good as the original so I'm just wondering if someone with a scrap shell might have one? The support above it has gone too.

The other bit I still need is part of the front valance. I managed to get an original NOS repair panel, but it's missing the vents which sit below the grill, along with the bit the grill sits on. So if anyone happens to have either of these, and is able to cut them off and send them to me (because lockdown) I'd be most grateful once we've sorted out a price.

I've attached some pictures of my dilemma. I've already cut part of the bump stop mount off in prep for creating a new one... but I really don't want to have to do that.

Thank you in advance!

I can't really help but the rear bump stop looks the same as a C900 so hot might be a bit easier to find than looking for one off a 99.
A repair panel for the area of the shock absorber mount is available from Bill at Saabbits https://www.saabits.com/body-and-trim/r ... 92_134_137

Good Luck with the restoration !
