    Default Lower Fender Spats. I'm in a jam!

    Does anyone know for sure if the lower fender spats on a LX are the same as the GT bumper cover? My car is at the paint shop and (long story) I don't have the lower fender spats for my 85/86 GT front cover.

    Does anyone know of a source to find these? They seem impossible. Guy on ebay wants $100 for two broken and heavily damaged ones.

    im pretty shure they are the only diffrences would be up front with the gt having fog lamps and the lx not but the sides should be the same for 85 -86.
    and yeah thats what they pretty much cost on e bay.

    I put a GT bumper cover on an 86 LX. Nothing was needed except the fog light bar and bolts.

    Thanks for the info guys. I went on a nation wide man hunt for these things. I messaged CL sellers across the country last night. Hopefully something turns up.

    Did you put up a parts wanted ad on this forum? I'm sure someone could help you out!

    I couldn't post a wanted ad because I don't have enough posts.

    I got rid of my FB but I can go on my wife's and try to find that guy on FBA's. I'm getting a lot of 87+'s, broken ones, 2 left sides, etc....

    I totally understand you are simply trying to help a fellow forum member in need of parts. That is pretty cool you would spend the time to post that up just to help him. But to me, that black one also look heavily damaged or crushed and then he says "not perfect" whatever that means. I would want more pictures of them from different angles. It could just be the angle of the pictures.
    Good Luck. I was lucky to find a set not long ago that were nearly perfect with a bumper AND fog light bar AND fog light harness

    I appreciate any lead right now. I've talked to many people about these over the last few days. Everyone's either got a bucket full of 87+ or two lefts or severely damaged or won't ship or whatever. These are going to be covered up as the car is getting a 9" Motorcity front valance for the front cover. After you posted the FB lead I reactivated my FB account and messaged the guy. He want's $100 for all of it and I asked for him to split it up as I don't need the moldings. He wants to keep it together. If I get desperate enough I will have to bite and make it work. The car is sitting in the paint shop and within a week or two he needs those pieces to proceed.

    Hmm...it looks heavily crushed and also like theres a hole and a crack right on top of it. Maybe I need glasses? I didn't say don't even check on them or that I know for a fact it is damaged, just that I would request more pictures before you send him money and get the stuff and are disappointed is all. Can't hurt.

    I'd be willing to buy the moldings from you if you go the spats+molding route. I need a set for my 85 Saleen build.

    Not sure why the guy won't split them up as he could double his money, but so be it. PM me on details.

    Not true. Nowhere in the rules for the 'Parts - Wanted' sub-forum does it say anything about a minimum post count and in the description of that sub-forum it says "NO MINIMUM POST COUNT REQUIRED." ...

    Parts - Wanted (NO TRADES)

    Read guidelines before posting.

    I didn't see a sub forum for "Parts Wanted." I looked and couldn't understand why there wasn't much mention anywhere of PArts Wanted but I just assumed it was in the For sale section which I couldn't post in due to low post count.



    EDIT: I just went and looked and the two forums marked "PARTS WANTED" And "FREE PARTS" weren't visible to me when I posted this. Now I can see them perfectly clear. Very weird.
