Is there a market any more?
« on: 01 September 2019, 16:51:41 »

Just a question and in no way a for sale - that will come later if I decide to do it.

Ive got 2 x 3.2 Elite Estates that are likely to go for scrap. Is there any point in taking stuff off? Any interest in an Irmscher Bodykit for an estate? Or Sportstars?

Wondering whether I can be arsed with stripping anything! :-X ::)

Lots of parts that are hard to get NLS
headlamp level sensors, rear brake retain spring/pin set etc
auto dim mirror
alloys with tyres will always sell well
coil packs if genuine and good
sensibly priced Irmscher stuff
or sell complete as spares repairs with good pics and honest description
list the parts that are NOT rusty  ;D

eBay, for body kit still a lot of interest in euroland,  If you have the time just list stuff,good photos and including postage, as for prices, remember lots of stuff is now NLS,...

There's still a market, but it takes effort to actually sell stuff for a worthwhile price.


Bigger stuff like bodykits and weird wheels are easy to remove and will probably sell quickly.


The small random stuff is an entirely different matter: it takes time to remove, and lots of space to store. Then you have to match it with buyers who will pay for it and the postage. There are people who want lots of used spares, and they are the ones you need to cultivate.


Personally, I don't think it's worth the effort.

As a long shot talk to Nigel, Omega52.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/omegas52?_pgn=6&rt=nc

He is a great block who still holds Omega spare parts and has looked after my, and others on here, cars needs well! 8) 8)

It is a shame to get rid of any Omega parts that others may need.  Maybe, just maybe, Nigel can do a deal with you if you remove a pallet worth of parts. It could help those of us Omega owners who want to keep them running! :D ;)

As I say, just a long shot! ::) ::)

The issue is, time is very much in demand at the moment. Not sure whether the effort is worthwhile or if Id rather just get the space back.  :-X

I'd definitely be interested in the Sportstars, maybe more, Irmscher steering wheel?

Weigh them in and use the time and space for something important.

Remember that lots of parts are not just NLA, but also NLW.


These are now old cars, with steadily decreasing interest in them.

Had crossed my mind, but I don't think I would be popular if I rolled up with 2 more real cars. :'(

Not really thought. One is a write off anyway, but does have lpg and Irmy stuff the other needs a patch welding in and brakes for an MOT - this one has a stainless exhaust.

Not really in a position to get rid yet as they are useful storage space but a sensible offer would take them, bearing mind scrap value.
