Hi,

Noticed the other week a standard Nissan Sunny in a scrappy on eBay, emailed the chap asking what bits were left on it, to my amazmement still in one piece Very Happy couldnt get down there last weekend, so popped down this morning to find it was still all there.  He left me too it to get what I needed:

Full dashboard
Trim around radio
Door Seals
Two parts either side of parcel shelf complete with factory fitted speakers!! plus loom Laughing didnt need them, but as they had the speakers factory fitted thought why not!
Rear side windows trim pieces (only needed clips)
standard rear lights with bulb tray and loom (internal fog light)
door bump strips and quarter panels
all bulbs out of clocks (put them in the wifes handbag)
Dip stick (dont ask!)
both front Indicators
Lower dash trim pieces (mine have various holes from bits being attached when in japan)

all that for £80  Very Happy  now the reason I got carried away was, the car was absolutely spotless! it only had 51k on the clock, even standard radio with code in nissan folder with log book and car owners manual, body work is immaculate, only problem being is theres two cars stacked on top now Mad  electric sun roof but wind up windows Laughing  looks like is was only just serviced as well brand new dizzy and leads, oil cap clean as a whistle.  I wanted the windscreen wiper pivot mount drivers side, but suffered the same fate as mine bottom bolt rusted to hell and cant remove without damaging plastic bracket behind, £51 from nissan it is then Shocked





Was going to get a few more bits but got them from Bob the other week, only noticed last week that I had a small crack starting to appear in my dash when I was up in the house loft, the dash I got today is like brand new!!

Half the house loft is taken over with pretty much two sets of interior now Laughing thankfully she never goes up there!

Gaz

Its always good when they let you get on with it.
Most of the places around here ask what you want and they get it for you.
I like to have a tat around when i go to a scrapyard.

Another guy working there came over after a while and looked a bit taken back that I'd manged to strip pretty much the whole interior out in a short time Laughing

Came away with a Mk6 Golf wing mirror complete unit, heated and tilt down when in reverse, as the Mrs hit a van weeks ago and destroyed it, got that for £40 so happy with that as all other ones Ive priced up are around £70 mark
