Si estate at Cheltenham

Post by MTXM » Wed Jun 20, 2012 8:17 pm

I got a few useful bits of trim off this car during the half-term week but there is still plenty left, including what looked like some decent strut tops! The scrappie is Harry Buckland and they have a website! With regards, Matthew T.

So did the glovebox strut work?? lol
Got a decent handle on the glovebox at least!!
Any chance of handbooks etc offering the radio code is there?

Not much there you need Campbell?
I'd fancy the front sidelights, foglight/indicators and dipstick!
Is it a reasonable yard priceweise??

Both the glovebox strut and handle were US unfortunately Andrew and due to pressure of time and pouring rain I forgot to check the fog/indicators. The radio might have been a slightly later Clarion replacement and I am not sure about the code on the handbooks - that I think were there. Both the sidelights were smashed and I have taken the mirrors and front bumper and door trims, although otherwise the car was mostly complete. The prices were reasonable I felt and you can take bits off yourself. With regards, Matthew T.

It's reasonably priced. Last time I spent £65 and got an assortment of switches, relays, parts of engine, manuals, trim, lights etc from an s1 2.1 estate. In the deal was a brand new towbar too for an estate. Guess where It is going. I'll be checking the wheels over and once can never have enough of those trims.

Wouldn't be the first time a yard says a car has gone only for it to be found EXACTLY
in the same spot. They're not the sharpest bunch about, that's all I'm saying. lol

It is a yard you can walk round - I walked all the way round both yards, twice!

As I was in a chunk of the top yard was being cleared for the new arrivals.
