Most of my spare parts are in ziplock bags in a box in my closet.

What specifically do you need, and I'll see what I can scrape up.

We have a lot of online-shops offering special wheels and other stuff here in Germany.
But in light of high shipping costs that won't be very useful for you, I guess?

For example check out:

www.ulinowak.de (superb aluminum/resin wheels)
www.noro-tuning.de (body kits made in resin and other useful stuff)
www.tremonia.org (photo-etched transkits)
www.av-modelle.de (full aluminum wheels, expensive but VERY good!)

Other than that I use ebay to get parts or even cheap broken models for donor.
Not least there are fellow collectors who possibly can help you with the wanted parts.

I build my own parts. If you look in the dxclassifieds section I have some listed in there. If there is something specific you need and I don't already have I can probably make it. I am starting a website, but it's slow going. I make mostly racing parts and complete engines. Also custom hoods, tube chassis,etc. You can send me a message if you'd like, if anything I make interests you. Brian

I usually fabricate mine when it's not available in the market. I use different kinds of materials found anywhere. Home, restaurants/bars, book & office supply stores, hardware shops, etc.

Raidou, I've seen your BMW pics on your website and elsewhere on this forum, and I was wondering where you got all your extra BMW rims?

For example, I saw BMW 3 Series Coupé wheels on a 1 Series Coupé, does that mean you had to buy a whole new 3 Series Coupé just to use the wheels?

With all the rim swaps I wonder where all the extra rims come from... :feedback

Jeez, no! :giggle
I mostly swap the rims from one model to another. You maybe noticed that I put CSL-rims on my E92 so that's where the wheels of 1series coupe come from. :wink
When I buy new wheels from Uli Nowak, the stock wheels go in my spare box. Somewhen they will fit on another car.
Sometimes I buy some wheels from ebay or friends.

Oh yes. I see a camaro(70), a blue car way up top on the left and a black car to the right of it. I like any musclecar. Let me know what you have and what you want for them. Oh any drag race wheels and tires if you have them, and other engines so I can make more parts for different engines. Dodge engines, buick, etc. Thanks Brian

Are any of those engines a Mopar 440 or other non-Hemi Mopar big block?
