PostPost by: dunclentdr » Mon Aug 18, 2014 9:14 pm

I have a few 'large' parts left over and would like to offer them at sensible prices to members.

Uncertain as to what 'sensible' prices might be - can anyone advise me so I can list them?

The parts are (All for Plus 2):-

Spyder chassis - early chassis in very good condition, has had a clean and coat of paint, some minor surface rust only, new brake lines in

Diff - has had new output bearings, seals and torque rods and new rubber set, cleaned

Rear brake calipers - need full refurb

2 knock on rear hubs

2 rear uprights

Thanks in advance.

I would think that ?500 for the chassis would be reasonable. It may seem a little low, but the holes drilled for the previous car will possibly have to be plug welded and re-tapped to fit onto another car.

This differential would be around ?250 - ?300 if the aluminium casting is very good.

Rear calipers, if they have the handbrake linkages, are quite hard to find, and ?150 - ?200 would be about right..

The uprights, if Type 18 and with good lower castings, would be around ?120, and I would throw in the +2 hubs for that....they are not worth much on their own!
