Mk2 G40 Conversion Breaking *UPDATED 29/07* Last lot of bits!
« on: February 02, 2017, 10:00:15 pm »
My last lot of Mk2/2f bits are listed below. Postage for most things should be around the £5 mark. I would prefer the larger parts be collected from me in Southampton, but if this isn't practical, I can obtain a quote for shipping (although it might be fair bit more). I'm happy to offer a discount on purchases of multiple parts.

I've posted pictures of some of the parts below, but can get pictures of any other parts on request.

Interior
  • 5 speed gearknob £2
  • Mk2 back carpet; rear section only* £5

Exterior
  • Mk2 Headlights (pair) £10
  • Mk2 Coupe rear lights (pair) £10
  • Mk2 Orange side indicators (pair) £2
  • Mk2 Orange front bumper indicators (pair) £2
  • Front wipers (pair); unused and boxed £3
  • Mk2 Coupe S sideskirts £10*
  • Mk2 Coupe gutter trims (pair); slight buckling in both where they've been removed and re-fitted and one has minor cracking £5
  • Mk2 Coupe rear bumper; boxed and in perfect condition £20*
  • Mk2 Coupe S badge; reasonable condition, some colour has rubbed away £5
  • Mk2 rear "VW" badge; reasonable condition, some colour has been rubbed off £2
  • Mk2 rear "Volkswagen" badge; in packet and in perfect condition £5
  • Mk2 Coupe "GT" rear badge; not to be confused with the Mk2F one. These are extremely hard to get hold of, but I have two. One is pretty much perfect. With the exception of a little bit of the sticky backing left on it, you'd be hard pushed to see it had been used before. The other is in good condition, but the colour has faded slightly, there are two tiny paler dots in the colour and it looks like something has rubbed it ever so slighltly. However, you've got to look very closely to see these imperfections. I'm not sure what they're worth, but will start at asking for £75 for the former and £60 for the later. Feel free to make an offer though. I'll probably hang on for a few weeks to see what I can get for them though. I'd rather not use eBay due to problems with timewasters.

Mechanical, under bonnet etc.
  • K&N cone filter; unused, 58mm connector £5
  • Genuine oil filter for G40 engine; unused and boxed, with sump washer £2
  • Revotec adjustable radiator fan switch £5
  • Mk2 speedo cable; only covered a few hundred miles £5
  • Halfords 65mm exhaust clamp; unused and in its packet £1
  • Mk2 jack £2


Misc.
  • Mk2 Haynes manual; has been used in the garage, so some pages may be a little grubby £5
  • Mk2f Haynes manual; has been used in the garage, so some pages may be a little grubby £5

I think a letter was missing; were you asking what are the upper and lower brace bars? If so, the upper rear brace bar braces the rear turrets and keeps the rear suspension geometry good. The lower front braces the chassis legs (which are notoriously flimsy on the G40) and keeps the front suspension geometry good. Both are bolt on and can be fitted in a few minutes.

As for the shell, I have the seat belts. The front ones have been removed, but I do have them. Were you interested in the whole rolling shell or just the belts?

Yeah I had meant what... Na I think the wife would kill me if I appeared with another car for the drive... I remember my brother fitting strut braces to an old car and made a big difference.... it would just be the belts and buckles as the g currently has nothing installed.. it has two sparco harnesses in the front but that's it.. also stops the seats from flipping forwards

I have the nylon ARB blocks and I should have some Powerflex bushes; which ones were you after?

All of them. The lot! inner, outer, blocks, top mounts, rear beam. I've got a 125k mile GT with all original parts on it I reckon, like driving a blancmange on a bouncy castle!

Are they new or used? How much you want for them all posted together? £50?
