The car is about 13 years old, you're going to have a hard time finding parts. You can use any available body, but the wheels are not the same anymore, good luck finding tires for it.

cant find a body unless your saying that if it fits a proceed or mugen, etc it will fit the vector?

i bought a brand new 99 spec vector late last year. parts are an issue, however ive found ebay is your friend. ive found enough stuff on there to build a complete car from parts if i wanted to. tires are another problem, i lucked out and bought stock, found a guy selling various compounds, all new, 6 pairs of each front and rears.

stuff is out there, like i said, ebay is your friend. dont expect it to be your race car again, but you should be able to find enough stuff to have fun with the car again.

there is some interchange, however dont try and go off part numbers, serpent changed them at some point between the vector and 950. from what ive figured (dont rely on this) pulleys are the same and so are belts. some of the suspension components look quite close, the case of some fitting may be needed but they could work.
