We are currently working on the LJ Headlight Surrounds, once these are completed we will move on to reproducing the LC Headlight Surrounds. At this early stage we could only give a broad estimate of Mid-Late 2013 availability for these.

LC Grilles are currently under development and we could only estimate that they will be available in 2013.

Cool, not sure i understand though why you would do LJ before LC when LC is older and harder to come by !! The sooner it happens the better

Any update on how the LJ surrounds are going? And subsequent LC surrounds?  I only have one LC surround and I've seen more rocking horse poo than LC Surrounds anywhere.

I managed to score a couple of these. I have taken them to the Mould Repair Guy out at Kingswood. They are able to repair these even from a poor state. Not cheap, but given how much work is involved, fair.

 

I will report back when I get mine back. 

 

The moral of the story is dont throw them away even if you think they are stuffed.

 

cheers

Glenn

I picked up my LC headlight surrounds from Automotive Moulding (Kingswood, NSW - 4731 6445) today.

 

The surrounds had cuts and damage.

 

They managed to repair the cuts and remodel the damage well enough that I couldnt even see where the damage was. They really did a great job!

 

I have no links to these guys except that they have repaired my headlight surrounds.

 

cheers

Glenn

How much to they charge for a pair of LC ones if you don't mind sharing? - I have a set here needing some work - if the price isn't too bad, I'll get them done, otherwise I will sit back and wait for mr rare spares.

To repair 3 headlight surrounds cost me $500, which was about $160 each. I didnt think that was too bad, given what they were like before I gave them to these guys.

 

cheers
