mate I'll happily give you $200 for the coupe doors (sight unseen) as long as they are complete (I don't mind if the interior trim is stuffed as long as the windows and window mechanisms and lock/handles are all there
Withg regard to the tail-lights - I basically need a complete set, lenses, backing plates - the whole assembly. I've got a coupe shell, but it has no tail-lights whatsoever. If you can make a set out of what is there, I'm happy to buy them. When I say "if you can make a set" I don't actually mean I'm expecting you to have to do that for me. What I mean is - 'if one working pair can be made from the bits and pieces' sort of thing. If that is a possibility, I'm keen to move forward with working out a price that is fair. I'd very much like pictures if possible, of all the lenses, so I can work out what is what, so to speak.
Also count me in for the ute tailshaft would $80 do.
I realise this would all then need to be shipped over. If you can get it to a pack and send near you, I'll get them to pack it all on a pallet and send it here at my costs (I'll have to work out prices with them, but I'm ok with doing that.
So - can you come up with a price for the doors, the tailshaft, and whatever combo of parts it'd take to make a pair of complete tail light assemblies (I'm ok with $200 for the doors, and $80 for the tailshaft, let me know if you want to work something else out) and I'll have to hold on working out a $$ for the tail lights till I see pics.
I'm also happy if you want to negotiate this via PM or email rather than on here:firstname.lastname@example.org
If I could ask (and I'm not interested in getting into the 'he said she said' stuff - just curious if maybe I can help) - what parts are missing from the carbs? Ironically floats and throttle plates (and throttle shafts) are actually pretty easy to get/replace, but the 'hard stuff' is generally either the main body itself, or the fuel bowl covers, such that they are, since mostly that stuff is only going to come from another carb that was put aside for parts. Note that i'm not saying that that makes either party better or worse off, but if there _is_ a particular part missing, maybe, just maybe, I can help out, and if I've got it I'll pass it D's way for free, which (I hope) would sort of help both parties out. Heck I might even be able to make the part if absolute worse comes to worse (It won't have a weber name cast on it or anything but I might be able to make a functionally identical replacement!)
ACtually this might be an issue - I just looked at pack n send - are any of the following a reasonable distance for you?
Unit 2/9 Parkes Street, COCKBURN CENTRAL, WA 6164
9 Cantonment Street, FREMANTLE, WA 6160
Unit 3, 25 Yampi Way, Willetton, WA 6155
They all are about 60km. maybe if I threw in a few bucks for fuel as well?
