Restoring two old Renaul coupes. Need help finding parts!
« on: January 11, 2009, 03:10:47 PM »
Is anyone in our European readership able and willing to help me find parts to restore my newly acquired R15 (1972) and R17TL (1976)? Without US dealerships, Renault parts are exceptionally difficult to find here.

I have already tried contacting the people at Renault.com several times without success (not even ONE response). So, it appears that junkyards and NAPA-equivalents are what are needed.

Yes, we plan to do a blog of the restoration projects - with photos. :)

oooh, I had one of those some years ago and actually had to sell it because we couldn't get parts to fix it.
I wish you luck on your endeavor, restoration projects are great, keep you occupied.
