Gen 1 driver's side door pull/handle (have also seen this described as "door latch remote control"). Not sure of the part number.

Mine is still working to open the door, but the spring that pulls the handle back into its recessed position gave out. Passenger side is available from a few sources, but I cannot find the driver's side.

Hello,

Does anyone know where I could find a hood release handle? Mine broke.

The National Officers of the Viper Club of America have decided to move forward on the "Old Parts Project". I will be working directly with the National Officers and SRT. The purpose of this post is to identify the Obsolete parts and list them here. We need your input: Let us know what you have not been able to get or replace on your car. When we get a list together this list will be presented to SRT.

Please list the year of the car, and describe the Obsolete Part. Things like fasteners, antenna mount, weather-strips, side curtains, soft tops or even specific parts of a soft top, AC system and parts, etc.

Please be patient and thanks.
Merry Christmas Jeff,

I have fuel level sensors for the Gen I if anyone needs one

Hi
Does anyone know where I may be able to find the driver side door panel for a 96 GTS or have experience with a fabricator that could repair a warped panel?

Are windshields for Gen 1 still a Unicorn ? Are the polycarbonate ones from Shields street legal ?
Saw a few NOS in Ohio on Ebay, but too far away and too tough to ship.

Looking for GEN1/2 headlights. Trying to finish a GTS/ACR project. Will pay well! :)

What do you call those vent flaps at the rear of the front wheel wells? It looks like they're made of a fiber paper and mine are about to rip off.

Not sure what they are called but I assume you are talking about these.

I found a guy that made these a while back and they work great. I sent him a message to see if he still makes them. I’ll let you know what he says if I hear back.

Yeah that's it! I'm surprised they aren't more available. I would think they all fall apart pretty quickly.

There's got to be an alternative source. I thought I saw something a few years ago that somebody made an alternative part.

If I remember right I think those are just like masticated rubber or something. You could probably buy a sheet of it and cut it yourself with a utility knife if you really wanted a new set quickly. Probably wouldn't look quite as nice as something water jetted or die cut or something like that, but could restore function at least.

I have a couple of aftermarket windshields for sale. I drive up north to VA if you want to meet up in person to grab one
