['83 FC 35] Need Exterior Parts
 
Hey everyone, I have a 1983 FC 35 that I'm restoring and I'm missing a few exterior parts. The last body shop it was at seemed to "misplace" a lot of the parts so now I'm scrambling. On one side I'm missing all the small metal doors, a light (which I found on CoachParts), awning and all kinds of stuff. If anyone knows what all I'm missing or has anything for sale, please let me know!



I tried embedding the pictures to the post but they were way too large so here's a link to the album:

I have to ask, if the body shop "misplaced" them why aren't you telling them to replace them? Finding those doors might not be too easy. Randy, may come along and have some or an idea of where to find them. The body shop may have to hire a metal shop to make them, if they don't have a metal guy good enough to make them. The light might be easier. Try this https://www.overtons.com/sierra-28v-...RoCclMQAvD_BwE I just noticed this one is 28v but I'm sure you can find a 12v one.

I may have a bay door,but i need measurements.
the fridge louvered door is still available new.

It's the classic scenario where you pay a guy and a year later he skips town. It's my fault for not checking in, but when I finally did a lot of the pieces were missing... either thrown away or sold. It's at a new shop now so I just need these pieces to finish it up.


The guy that has it now says he might be able to fabricate the door towards the front, but the back one he's at a loss for. I'd like to just buy the parts so it saves everyone the headache, but I'm learning it can be difficult to track down.


I found this light and it looks like the right one and for half the price. It doesn't say the voltage though. (https://coachparts.net/blue-bird-wan...ing-light-assy)

Thank you for this. I will get these measurements tomorrow and let you know!

Nice coach. Sorry i can't do much to help. My tin knocking days (and equipment) are behind me. I get my hands on a 4 foot brake things might change. My only thought (being from Florida) is that striking dark paint job. Cooling in summer might get a little tough if you come down south (IMHO). Of course, that is the beauty of these things. We can drive them any place we like.

William, Randy is your best bet for the battery door. If you come up dry there might be alternatives. Randy isn't there someone who had a mid 80's fc that was totaled in a tornado? I think the owner now owns a BMC? I think the insurance wanted to much and have it in some salvage yard. What about Colaws? Just thoughts....

That was Dave Hollis's coach that fliped out.
I have no idea where it went,if it was newer it might have rubber hinged doors.
All FC doors are not the same.
