Hi all,
Does anyone know where I can buy part numbers 26290AC100 and 26290AC110 in the UK? Front disk dust/splash guards as I can only find them either in the USA or Australia with pricey delivery charges.

I may have to just run with out them as I have done with previous Veedubs but thought it'd be better to have them.

Cheers
Andy

My first SF they were so badly rusted they just pulled off in chunks, but with my current SF they were in good condition so just rolled them back all the way around to allow for the bigger front discs.

I've run without them on my last 2 cars.
They are not really a bolt on part anyway. From memory, the originals are spot welded on.
