The biggest thing I need are the grill inserts and some of the trim (a bunch have bents or screws through them.)
My big mechanical's: hp increase, A/C unit, and 5sp trans swap.

or know a company that can help.

The wagon is going to the body shop tomorrow, so need to be getting other stuff lined up.

Re: 5-speed, I just swapped my M40 trans for an M41 with a D-type overdrive. Makes a huge difference in freeway driving, both in mpg (+/- 25% gain) and general noise and vibration reduction. It's a somewhat involved procedure, but works beautifully. See http://www.vclassics.com/archive/odconv.htm for step-by-step details on how to get it done. Note that the description is somewhat out of date - prices are higher for everything, and RPR, at least, is long gone.

Read through the entire thread, click on all the links then return here with what you intend to order (if anything) so we can find a better deal (if any).

Many Amazon used/new parts suppliers listed here...
