FC body panels (metal) & floor pan. More of the molded rubber seals for the FC heater system. Any part unique to the left side doors (Yeah, I know, limited market.)

How about EM repro front and back rubber floor mats in the colors that were available back in the day? Also, the bumpers that the rear folding seat rest on when it is in the upright position.

Please keep in mind, that when a reproduction is made, a lot of time and effort goes into making sure that it is correct and will function as originally designed. A simple thing such as a seat bumper can cost thousands of dollars just to have the mold made for a production run. People need to step up to the plate, and order the part when it becomes available. If it just sits on the shelf, and dribbles out a couple of pieces each year, then it isn't profitable, and the investment in that one simple part that isn't selling, takes money away from more reproductions being done. Support the vendors that support your hobby! Buy the reproduction parts when they become available, not years later when they may or may not be available. Some reproductions take so long to sell out, that the company that did the original manufacturing of the reproduction part has gone out of business. When this happens, then there is a strong possibility that the part will never be reproduced again.

I'll second this one! A re-run of some of the steel panels that are out of stock would be helpful also.

How about another run of the 4 spider carriers with the reinforced case?
I would also put another vote in for the posi plates. Also the posi side gear itself would be nice. There are MANY guys looking for posi parts now and they are getting harder and harder to find. I know Clark's has the steel posi cover and David Clemens was making the spacer. If the clutches and gear were reproduced it would be possible to put a posi set up together with off the shelf parts again smiling smiley

Another vote for reliable mechanical fuel pumps. And for us turbo guys, how about the correct thick gasket that goes between the throttle body and the YH carburetor instead of stacking gaskets to get close to the original thickness?
