Garage Clearout

PostPost by: theelanman » Fri Sep 22, 2017 7:43 am

I too have some +2 steel wheels I need to move on........these are the early steel type
the type that had or didn't have the chrome trim ring.......these are not the type with the chrome rim as part of the wheel
one set needs refurbing and is fitted with Dunlop SP sport tyres from the 70's (which obviously need getting rid as they're now like polished steel)
the other set have been refurbed....powder coated in silver and have a brand new set of Kumho tyres on
the first set is the set I got with my car...the second set was the set I had to replace the first set but while I was still using the car.........anyway....that all went out of the window when I bought a set of original +2 alloys..........
the set that need a refurb would be the same price as the other chap at ?200.....
the set that have been done and have new tyres fitted would be ?500 ~.....ish (on top of the original purchase price.....I paid ?40 a wheel to get them done and the tyres were ?50 each....so its actually cost me ?560 for these)
if you have any interest....please feel free to drop me a line
Im in Buxton Derbyshire.........
I will also be shifting some other stuff once Ive completed the sale of the M100 Elan.......
this is the first stuff out as it was infront of the car........
also if anyone wants (or knows anyone who wants) any M100 parts and spares.....I have a garage full of those too which will be going........and yes there are wheel in amongst all that lot too.......and a very very rare Carbon Fibre Hardtop

It wasn't info for me, but I thought the other viewers would need to know haw many wheels in your sets.

I've weighed Elan steel rims and they seem to weigh about 6kg. How heavy are the +2 ones. Just as a matter of interest.
