OK....

so - how come nobody does a reproduction lower bush for the 60/61 Valiants ?

Surely they're not that hard to make?
I've only managed to see maybe a couple on Ebay for like $80 U.S each (by the time I do a currency conversion and postage, it's like $300 AUS for 2 bushes).
So it begs the question, why can't they make them ?

Or am I looking in the wrong place ?

Peter

There was just a thread on this. Try searching user "HyperValiant," who just bought some from a company in CA (IIRC). I think it was about $100 for the pair?

Thanks mate.
I messaged him a week or so back.....mustn't have read my message yet. Never mind.

I have found there's a guy here in Australia who says he can rebush original casings if not damaged.
Mopar Mall has them for about $58 U.S, but after conversion and postage, I have to wait a while because it's a bit price.
A club down here seems to have some NOS in stock but their parts guy is on 3 months holiday (of course).

I don't want to go the later setup.....so will wait till I can get some bushes - somehow.
