    Sone of the parts, especially trim are available new repro from parts suppliers, sunbeam specialties and classic sunbeam, same with lenses.

    Other parts am sure members will contact you, but try pm to 65sunbeam or jaars

    Thanks, I’ll order what I have to and hope I can find all the other parts that aren’t offered by suppliers. I think the hardest pieces to find will be the hood side supports for the soft top frame. Are they called cantrails? I also expect to have trouble finding the trim that secures the soft top bottom to the rear of the car and the side covers that hinge. I have the larger hinging seat back but not the smaller side covers.

    I also understand the proper gas cap is very hard to find.

    The soft top retaining strip will be easy to find, just know that si/ii is different to the later cars.

    The cantrials are hard to.find...but not 100% needed.

    The metal side covers for the top are also not to hard to find but si and sii are detail difference but will fit... S3 onwards wont.

    I think I have a S2 Speedo out in the shop. Have a few of the switch surrounds, but not a complete set.
    I have a friend that has a steering column cover and may have some of the other S2 parts you're looking for.

    By the way, Michael is right on target , some of what you need is available new from either
    CS or SS.
    I'll check what I have and PM you later .
    Cheers!
    Steve

    I spent much time gathering the parts he needed on his list a week ago and sent photos of all of them and priced them with fair prices and he did reply back once or twice but implied that he was trolling other members selling parts for the best price I imagine. Colin-early Alpine parts are not easy to find let alone finding anyone to sell them and mail them to Canada as well. Lesson learned on my part. Eric

    Thanks for writing gentlemen, I’m sorry I haven’t gotten back to you yet. I should have kept in touch better. Life, family and business is very busy here but that is the case for most of us. I have been able to find a few parts from someone local and am waiting until next weekend to hear from another fellow. I should have kept you posted. I appreciate your efforts and will send you messages as soon as I know more.

    Thanks,
    Colin
