Soybean mentioned in another thread about the limited number of Opel Parts suppliers. Here is a list of suppliers in Europe.

Yeah, some I remembered Gary, some I had forgotten, but the problem lies in shipping and the difference in our currency. Some of the suppliers take a long time to ship, but I will say, people in Europe take a lot of pride in their Gts and you can readily see it in the pictures Norbet posts. Jarrell

I have 3 "odd ball" Opels that the U.S. suppliers do not stock parts for so I need to deal with European suppliers. I usually get the parts in about a week. A lot of them are now taking Paypal for payment so that takes the currency out of the picture. Most of their pricing includes the 20% VAT which is deducted for international shipping. Shipping can be costly once you get beyond the "Small Packet" size.

I just placed an order with Edelschmiede for my 24v motor. I'll update when it arrives. (of course they could be on Holiday for the next month :haha:)
