Re: Genuine, rare, centre console panel and gauges.

I actually have no idea whether I sold this. If I didn't, it's all super-hardcore-buried somewhere. :lol:

Re: Fibreglass rear quarters

If you cut away the steel and replace it with GRP it's a radically altered monocoque in the eyes of VOSA. Rightly or wrongly, those are the rules.

Re: Fibreglass rear quarters

Nah, "radically altered monocoque". I will personally report anyone who fits these horrendous overfenders.

Re: B230ET/FT bits

^^^ I'm probably going to use a trigger wheel at this rate. I have a nice lightened flywheel I can use.

Re: Wanted...The Holy Grail..

I have a 5DR awaiting restoration. I'm hoping to start on it before Xmas. I'll either be making it fully standard, or adding a 940 turbo engine. It will 100% be for sale when it's done, as I have too many. Sorry I can't be more help.

Re: Fibreglass rear quarters

In addition, you'll never be able to MOT a car that has the rear quarters cut out and replaced with GRP. You'll need an IVA if you ever want to use it legally on a road again.

Re: B230ET/FT bits

You don't have a B230FT/FK flywheel do you? The 'dogdish' type? Could collect as I'll be in the bristol area in a week or so.

Re: Volvo 760 parts

How thick are the spacers? I would have thought Virgos would fit fine as they're all the same offset. Spacers would help many a rwd volvo wheel fill the arches properly though.

Re: Another one point seven to save

Hi Mac, how are you keeping? I'm not sure about whether I can shift my sunny. Once I've replaced the water pump I'll have a better idea if it can sell. I may have sold an MX5 today so if that comes to fruition I'll be in a position to buy. I still have Barge, though she's sadly off the road now. The...

Re: Another one point seven to save

Yeah, get your own thread! I really actually want this. I've had my Nissan Sunny for sale for about a week now, with a couple of sniffs at the £600 mark, I was hoping it would go on Sunday but the water pump shaft sheared last night so I'll need to replace that first. If I can get it gone I'll actua...

30+ with Footman James, who in all fairness only charged an extra £20 for the sunny being 27 years old. £133 fully comp, unlimited miles.

Re: Another one point seven to save

I am possibly selling my Nissan in the next few days. Sadly the water pump just sheared tonight but that should be a minor inconvenience. I quite fancy this little 340, but it'd be a race against time to grab it before the test expires. Also, I probably can't get it onto my classic policy. :(
