Looking for a C4 Convertible spare tyre, cover and jack

Story goes that customs liked the spare tyre, cover and jack more than the importer. Can anyone on here help me source these items please.

Is there a way to hold them to account for the damage.

I didn't bring the car in, but from what I have been told in the past, they have a right to search by any means and are not held accountable for damage done. Again, this is what I have been told.

Any proof it happened in Oz? Theft and damage could have occurred before it left the USA.
It's C3 chromie for me, see? Si!

Not sure as I didn't bring the car in GTC. Anyhow, it's history now, just need to replace the missing and damaged stuff.

I have a jack.
Cover??? You mean the jack bag or the spare carrier?
What year. I have a 16" but you need a 17 post '88.

Sabre, need the spare wheel carrier, 17" spare as it is an 88 with the Z52 package and jack. Bag for jack is optional. All I have is the key for the wheel caps (thank god) and tyre wrench behind the drivers seat. Even the threaded bar that holds the spare wheel carrier is gone.
