Evening everyone Trying to source the style arches and front bumper the same as this 280ge... Notice how the front bumper arch and side(s) arches are very sharp angled? Also the bumper is longer than than most I've seen on 280ge's I've seen? And last but not least the color code of any one knows? Many thanks

They look quite different from the typical factory fit of that era. (Early ones were made of glass fibre. Later ones were polyurethnane, but in both cases a little more rounded than those pictured)

that will be difficult (i.e. impossible); judging by the logo on the bumper it is a G modified by BB Auto, quite prominent in the 70s for tuning Porsches, innovative at the time but does not exist any more.

and found this photo on the internet with the corresponding interior, the good old Clarion tower, looked like a good idea at the time:

that body kit is too wide for the alloys, not a great look IMHO
