Need the following parts for a 53 Champion 4 door sedan - Upper radiator air deflector (Pt no 297776). This is the panel that goes between the radiator and the grill that the hood latch plate bolts to. Also need a pair of good front door vent window frames. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, George.

Hi Dave, I never thought to try closer to home as these cars are rather thin on the ground in this part of the world! I am hoping to come across in the next 2 or 3 weeks - as soon as the shaking stops here!! Still getting a lot of aftershocks (had a good '5' a couple of days ago) so am a bit reluctant to leave Francie and my Mum (her house was destroyed in the quake) on their own. Need the panel for a guy here who is restoring his 53 sedan and his painter removed the panel and then lost it!! Will be in touch and many thanks, George.

Ok George, I will see you then. I am glad that you made through the quakes allright. I am sorry about your mum's home, Is she OK?

Hi Dave, Yes Mum is OK and living with us at the moment. Her house is still standing but lots of structural damage so will have to totally rebuilt. Was just a new house - she had only been there about 12 months or so! Cheers, George.
