Seat Marbella parts

Hi,


I've recently bought a Seat Marbella and looking for a few parts for it. The parts I'm after are going to be hard to find as they are specific to the Marbella. Basically I'm after a o/s head light lens and a bonnet.


If anyone can help or point me to someone who can I would be grateful


Thanks
Daniel

Re: Seat Marbella parts

Thanks everyone. Only issue with getting lights of the continent is that they are for left hand drive cars so the doesn't angle the light correctly for UK roads.


The headlight unit I've got works fine apart from the glass has broken, but it nearly impossible to find one in the UK. Most people I've seen change the lights to Panda ones, but it doesn't look right.

Did you see the link @firstcar-Y10 posted (2nd post on this thread) Our Lord of the panda world @VmanC has changed the front of a seat to a panda front, so has all the bits you need from a right hand drive seat

I think you'll find that the Seat ones don't look right

The Panda ones ARE right, obviously. Well you are in a Panda section

Have you put up a wanted ad? If everyone has improved the look of their Marbella's there will be discarded Seat lights floating around. If you haven't already, it's worth contacting Vernon (as posted before), as he has surplus Seat bits around.
