Ebay and scrap yards for the straps. As for rusty doors, is it surface rust or Titanic deep water decay rust?

theres a guy atm on ebay italy who has a set of gray doors, look to be in good nick. msg him and see if he will sell them you..
i messaged him but just kept saying it was too expensive to ship... yet i was paying extra for it :/

if he sees interest maybe he will start collecting them and selling them to us lot.. i know he has sold a few panda doors already.

Really? My quest was almost fruitless.
As for doors, erm, I think it'd be easier to find the Holy Grail or to find a standard Saxo VTR.

I'd love new doors, they'd save me a fortune.
