Red Deer encounter: panels needed

Postby Frenchy » Sat Aug 13, 2016 1:15 pm

Hi, I am a member of the BX club, owning a TZD and also have a Xantia HDI.

I have been driving citroens for nearly 40 years off and on and find them supremely comfortable and reliable.

I have joined here in the hope of finding body panels for my Rosso Red Xantia which was involved with a red stag (deer) this morning.

I now need a bonnet, slam panel, n/s front wing and headlight and possibly a bumper to get it back on the road.

This is a 1999 model with very low mileage, under 100k, full leather and all electrics and an extremely comfortable cruiser, returning 53mpg.

Any help in locating parts would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome Frenchy

I've copied this post to the "For Sale & Wanted" forum and extended the title in the hope you will get a better response from there.

Cheapest way would be get a donor Car, you can also save "other" bits and then scrap it. There is not much that scraps a Xantia except Sills rusting/failed subframes and leaking suspension, none of the areas you say are normally effected so would be in good order.

The ACTIVA, as logical as cubed tumble-weed
