Help Me Please Looking for interior parts for 1989 Trans Am GTA

I'm looking for two small plastic trim pieces for the inside door armrests on my 1989 GTA. These where only used on the 1988 and 1989 GTA (in the color I need). You can see pictures and description here:
http://la.rsson.com/tta1078/looking4/looking4.html

Any help would be really appreciated as I've been missing one of them for many years (since I bought the car) and the other one is cracked and need to be replaced.

Also the 1987 color is different so it has to be from a 1988 or 1989.

Re: Looking for interior parts for 1989 Trans Am GTA

Jan, if you're unable to find this part and the gray ones you have are in good condition.... why not just recolor those to match your interior and use them? Any good quality auto paint/supply store should be able to match that Beechwood color for you in a sprayable interior paint/dye.

That would be easier than searching for years and having your TTA missing a trim piece, IMO.

Thanks CLiff, I dropped him an e-mail and I hope he can help me out. Been looking for these parts since I bought my TTA many years ago and have them in all colors except the one I need. Really appreciate your help.

Cool Re: Looking for interior parts for 1989 Trans Am GTA

Hi Jan!
Well,
In the move out to Arizona, I seemed to have "lost" the package with the parts that you are looking for (I don't even remember if they were cracked or not).
I'm on my 6th trip, 5 with my new big turbo! I have so many boxes stacked floor to cieling, wall to wall, it is unbelievable! Well, YOU would believe it! Ha!
So...................you coming out to "visit" me in April?? Lisa is looking forward to it! It's not Texas Loosey's, but the food is good! Hum, Texas Loosey's. Maybe I'll meet you back in Los Angeles! Ha! I gotta get those parts from the junkyards before you anyway! Ha!
Remember how I had no room at my house in Los Angeles? You should see all the land I have now! Time to get some more cars! And have I been looking! No lie!

Hope to "see" you soon,

George

Re: Looking for interior parts for 1989 Trans Am GTA

Hi George,

You should have given the stuff to me, at least you would know where they were :-) You better find that box, seems like you are my last resort finding them. Hey I would even fly out there personly to pick them up!

You need to send me your address so I can post the Swedish magazine with 2 TTA's and tons of other TA's I picked up for you last year.

No Texas Looseys out in the desert :-(, and only ONE Taco Bell ??? How do ya guys survive ??? I know you dont cook :-)

Look forward to visit!

Jan
