Back tail lights and front side lights wanted

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

Hello. We can help with most things here‎ but rear lights very seldom come up. There seem to be rear lights offered from Europe on the two Facebook groups more often but be prepared for a near 1000 Euro asking price for a perfect set.

If yours aren't damaged from the tow-truck incident you could try having them polished which a few people have had great success with.‎

What's wrong with the front clusters ? If it's just the drl lenses, next to the indicators, you can buy excellent copies in acrylic from Joep (member on here) Not cheap, but they aren't affected by the heat like the originals.
