Title: Let the Vultures Start Circling
Post by: Skifledanabit on February 14, 2013, 01:30:43 PM
I had a sad revelation last night, I don\'t have the time, expertise or money to get the 7 back to the standard I want it, so I think it is now time to break it.

I will post all the photos I have including all the rusty bits and the initial photos when I was looking to buy it.

FYI, this is what is NOT for sale
Bride passenger seat, but if I am offered the right price, I might.
The Gold wheels, they sold ages ago.
The snap off steering wheel hub.

In addition, I have a front strut brace on there too. I really should go and get some more current photos.

Ok, so a few prices would help I suppose.

I\'m not entirely clued up as to current pricing trends, so I\'m just going to put up what I think they are worth compared to how much I paid and after usage and current condition.

Engine with oil leak (that\'s all, still pulls nicely, goes through the gears well) with Gearbox: £500

Crystal Clear Headlights with HID kit, all in working condition: £50

Cusco Front Strut Brace: £50

Buddyclub fixed lightweight bucket seat, with slight bolster wear, have stuck fabric tape over this to stop any more damage: £200

Low rise side mount FC rail For Buddyclub: £100

Bride Brix II Recliner, great condition, no damage at all: £400

FC Passenger rail for Bride: £100

Mazdaspeed 747 wheels, in good condition, could do with a good clean and polish: £300

Apex lowering springs, adjustable rear shock. Standard front shocks but have a set of adjustables spare, all could do with a clean: £200 for all

2 branch manifold heat wrapped: £50

Stainless single exit exhaust sounds really nice, quiet on tick over and general driving then a nice roar when giving it some beans: £100

Battery box WITH LID!!!: £50

JVC Stereo, MP3/USB etc etc player: £50

JDM rear lights and JDM numberplate holder etc, great condition: £150

Unless stated otherwise (when I find them) and/or if someone wants a particular part not listed, all other parts of the car inc. the shell: £500

If there is something you want that I haven\'t listed, let me know and I will help you out.

I will add more as and when I remember, as well as getting photos.

I would obviously prefer pickup from Romford, Essex, but I\'m sure some parts can be sent by post if required. All prices plus delivery.

They are 747s yeah. I thought long and hard and after I sold the old 7, the next car i got I ended up hating because it wasn\'t the 7, so I got rid of that and got this 7. It will just go the same way again, I could get the best car in the world, but I would still end up hating it because its not the 7.
