  9. Hi there, I've been hunting also for spares now for more than a month... those bridgestone tyres is very expensive!! Fireboy has the best prices on EBAY... the other okes are of the wagon... you can email him he will sell direct also, a little bit cheaper due to no ebay charges. Rims same thing... search Ebay weekly and bid on them if available... I found 2 pairs for $20.. my luck.... It's time consuming.... but sadly most spares only on ebay available...
  10. Hi all, Ok RS500 have a new owner he collects Ford's.... I found replica wheels in Germany... don't care about the Bridgestone name on side.. still want to use my optima and not going to buy $100 pair wheels for that... Found other bits and pieces on Ebay.. time consuming but got a few bargains and then again not.... ebay is evil!!! Found repro body with decals from guy in Kuwait... finished painting... tape tape and more masking tape but got it done sorry for size... I'll start a new rebuild blog at some stage...
  11. Got a question, What is the best on a Turbo optima the chain or a belt conversion?
  12. Ok guys, I'm open for offers on the RS500 Cosworth chassis and body... Or trade for whatever Turbo Optima spares you got..... Feel like a wheeler dealer.... lol
  13. Hi there... very nice.. I'm in the process of sourcing spares for my personal owned turbo optima from 20 years ago... Can I ask you to paint my new body..... very nice indeed! What a shocker on Optima prices on the net.... wow some okes lost it!!!
  14. Hi there, I will post some... cleaning all my models been in storage for way way to long.... Here is some pictures of the RS500.
  15. Thx found some well price parts on ebay... some other parts are really crazy priced... I'm checking ebay daily now... seems some parts are well priced if you wait a bit...
