Does anyone know if its possible to purchase the Interceptor R front Valance as a seperate weld in part? It looks great and really moderns up the car IMHO.

There are so many parts on those cars they should sell as aftermarket parts. I'd buy one. Could be worth a call to Cropredy.

I also plan to get new bumpers sans overriders.

I've taken the overriders off my bumpers. Filled the smallish hole with a chrome dome bolt. Only notice it if pointed out. I thought it would look cleaner (and be easier to clean) and possibly make it look a little wider. Not 100 % sure but sticking with it for now. They are a feature that dates the car I think. We just had the Ellerslie concours show over here and 4 different people all remarked how (relatively) contemporary the Interceptor styling is.
Have also blacked out the grille like the R. Doesn't work so well on darker cars I think but will stick with it for a while before gIving the "every second leaf" style a try.

Whenever I have asked about purchasing any Interceptor R parts they have always seemed cagey about it... :(

I suspected that would be the case, not likely they want R type knock offs floating about.
Ah well, I have seen a front valance that has been extended in good taste and dgmurray's one looks beautiful too! ( along with everything else that's being done to his car)

A cut and a pie shaped piece added. The whole clip is worth a watch.
