Garage Clearout of 800 Spares

Post by scoobyh123 » Sun May 28, 2017 8:46 pm

No, don't panic, i'm not selling up and not having an 800 anymore! It's much simpler than that!

Over the years i've amassed quite a scary amount of spares and can't see me using anywhere near half of them, let alone all of them so the plan is to sort out what i will need and then offer the rest initially on here then fleabay. Also i want to be able to get my Sterling back in the garage like it should be so i'm having a mass clearout of the garage and maybe even my shed as well.

If anyone needs anything specific let me know and i'll see if i've got it, if not i'll be listing parts on this thread and if nobody has them, ebay.
Most of the bits are Mk2 but there's a few Mk1 bits in amongst it all. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

I don't know how much i've got in the way of Mk1 stuff Steve, i know there's a sunroof, 3-spoke steering wheel and a tailgate spoiler, other bits i'm not sure on.

There's a few bits in there, most of which i have to say i'll probably be keeping - are you after anything definite or just anything Coupé-specific?

Anything coupé-specific would do :)
If you have time to put up a list of stuff you don't want to keep, I might be interested in a few items.

I've spent what seems like an eternity today fighting spiders for garage space to exhume at least some of the spares. Here's what i've found so far :

Image
Mk1 Fastback Spoiler

Image
Mk2b N/S/F Wing, White Gold 2, very good condition

Image
Mk2b O/S/F Wing, generally very good except for the rust/deformation on the arch

Image
Set of 4 15" 7-spoke i/Si alloys and a steel spare - tyres are useless.

Image
2 sets Mk2a rear lights, ex my Sterling and Coupé, both sets excellent condition.

Image
Mk2b Stone Beige Dashboard, no lift, fantastic condition with Airbog

Image
6 Bumper Clips in a bag of assorted bits

Image
"Lucky Dip" box of Mk1 bits inc some ABS sensors.

Image
Bag of assorted brackets, hinges, shims (i think) and also contains the 6 bumper clips.

Image
PAS Reservoir, 820/825

Image
Set of 4 (?) window regulators and motors and some wiper mechanisms, a strange coolant pipe and a damaged Jeep XJ Cherokee mirror! :shock:

Image
Mk2b Coupé drivers seat belt C/W pretensioner

Image
White Gold 2 bonnet, paint not perfect but no obvious rust that i've seen, good grille

Image
Image
Mk2a Front bumper in White Gold 2 with scrape marks. These are quite deep on the drivers side

Also available (pics to follow) 8 or maybe 9 16" Roversport 7-spoke alloys. These will be cheap for all of them together. One or two are buckled (they were on the ex-Tony Pond car when it was used as a Pace Car at Thruxton and/or raced at Snetterton and suffered an "off track experience") and one or two have damage to the land where the wheel nuts contact thanks to while you wait done in a flash type tyre bays using windy guns to do the nuts up.
As such they will need to be checked/inspected before use and whoever has them should just about be able to get a set of 5, maybe only 4 good wheels. I don't have the time, energy or inclination to do this anymore.

There are some more spares not shown such as a Mk1 saloon/fastback sunroof, a Mk2 saloon/fastback sunroof, a variety of Climate Packs (untested) for air con and non-aircon cars with the old slide fan control, several headlamps, Mk2 O/S/F wing in Nightfire and possibly more besides.
Cheers,
Dave

Dave, does the bonnet include a good sound insulation pad?
Also do you have any coupe door hinges?

I'm not sure there are any bumper brackets there Jez but you're welcome to the clips and the bag they're in which has assorted hinges, brackets etc. Send me a PM and we'll sort it out. :wink: :D

It does Tom, yes - not sure on the Coupé door hinges but probably on my spare doors, i'll look later and report back.

On a slightly different note, for some reason these three pics didn't transfer from my phone last night so here they are now :

Image
Another shot of the bumper

Image
Image
Set of 4 doors in White Gold 2 - all have a minor scratch and they vary in size and depth. None are down to the metal though.

Also available, set of 4 Mk2b door cards in good condition, Stone Beige, lower spec but the only real difference is the fabric insert instead of leather - easily swapped! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Bad news on the hinges i'm afraid Tom, none present on the doors i have. :(

However, are you after the upper or lower hinges? The Red Dwarf Brothers have the lower ones in stock at a surprisingly reasonable price :

https://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-GRID004865

(Items #4 & #5 upper and lower respectively)

If it's the upper ones you're after the only thing i can suggest is hunt through the various breakers on fleabay and hope. Alternatively find a 200 Coupé, Cabriolet or 3-door hatch made from 89-95 and plunder the upper door minges from that :

https://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-BDB38033

Also found this on ebay, drivers door upper hinge for a Coupé :

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-200-400 ... OSwMtxXqaq~

Alternatively there are some in Spain :

http://www.mgroverpartfinder.com/XPART- ... +S+L+.aspx

A few options there for you! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

'm interested to know if the pressed steel 4-door hinges are the same dimensions as the cast/forged coupe versions. I need upper and lower both sides.

They look pretty different to me, the hinge pin iteslf might be the same but without measuring it it's hard to say.

Found these on ebay though :

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-218VVC- ... SwoBtW4f1U

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-218-Cou ... Swax5Yu09b

They look complete at the moment so the hoinges should be available. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave
