Various SE/S2 parts coming up for sale.

Postby simonbuk » Sun 03.09.2017, 15:55

NOTHING IS FOR SALE - YOU ARE IMAGINING THINGS

I am going to have various parts coming up for sale so come back frequently !! I am going to try and price them fairly with what I've seen in the past/think they are worth. If I'm way out please let me know with a nudge and a wink ;). I'm not trying to make the most out of people just trying to get my money back from Kermit.

So, your starters for 10 -

1. Front brake calipers and disc/pads, front braided brake lines. These were on my S2 and were in full working order, passed the last couple of MOTs satisfactorily. I've upgraded to Hispecs so don't need them. A bit dirty but they are brakes !! I'll clean them up when I can. Discs have about a 1mm lip if that. I also have a set of racing pads to give away with them too, never used.

£8 Million Pasos

IMG_20170903_133850022__1504444456_94.197.120.182__1504450177_94.197.120.182.jpg


2. ECU with performance chip - unsure which chip at present until I remove it from car. So at a minimum a Kilamonjaro maybe an Everest.

Turnips

3. Alloy 16" Wheels and tyres. These are good condition wheels and tyres, don't look too bad on an Elan I think. I'll supply name, offset, etc, later when I get home. Tyres are good, Bridgestones with what must be 5mm all round. I'll check when I find a tyre gauge ! Also have a set of the Lotus center badges.

£Aneka Rice.

4. Rear Lower Wishbones. I believe these to be later S2 wishbones as I believe Steve broke an S2 to swap parts onto Kermit. They are in very good condition, not yet removed from car but maybe in the next week or two. (The rest of suspension/hubs/stuff will also be removed so shout if you want something and I'll take some pictures).

Short City break for one.

5. Rear light clusters. All parts of the rear lights - plastic covers, main part of light, wiring and bulbs, black plastic rear covers, the WHOLE lot. I've heard as they are rare and also Renault Alpine shared they have commanded prices of £400 each - is this correct ? Happy to adjust after your input.

£Star Wars Fancy Dress Party - I go as Leah.

6. S2 grey/black with red stitching seats. I would say good condition with Lotus emblem discreetly in head rest part. Unsure of value so again happy to listen to views. Having now sat in Kermit's relatively newly retrimmed seats these do feel firm but they are 22 years old ! They are not showing signs of sagging or misshapen in any way. Just now firm compared to my new ones. Very light wear to driver's side bolster.

How very dare you suggest that.

7. Door cards and grey carpet from my S2. I may be selling these also. Just seeing if I can dye the yellow parts black on Kermit's door cards and need to remove the black carpet from that and see what it's like.

8. Set of door and boot locks with key. All work from the same key. Unsure of price ?

9. Early perspex number plate cover. Good condition - unsure of value ?

I have listed most of the higher value items. There will be lots of other parts coming including bits of trim/handles/button's - what do you want ?! Headlamp motors/ headlight pod with glass units, electric windows are working so is central locking. There's a stainless steel exhaust on it.

To be honest i'm watching that blue one on Ebay at the moment that has just gone north of 3K for a damaged one with sh*t paint - i'm having serious doubts !!

Nothing much has happened yet so i might put a few things back on !!

:? With so many good bits on the car why would you break her up, I'm assuming something seriously wrong ? (I'm not judging you)
There was a time when some cars were worth more in parts but that was mainly because there was plenty of customers out there willing to pay top dollar,
I'm not sure this is still the case, maybe the time has come when the complete car is worth more ?

Nothing seriously wrong, just tatty, hood poor, all seals f*cked, bit rusty. I would feel a little bad about breaking it but i'd get my money back, maybe more, end up with a spare engjne/box and some other bits.

A few years ago people were breaking the Elan+2 because they were cheap and the twincam engine was worth something.

Elan+2s go for around 20 grand now.... so keep breaking and you will have a few quid and a spare engine, whilst increasing the value of my assets by a few grand.

You are unlikely to ever need your spare engine, plus they are cheap, and once it has stood for a while you would have to rebuild it... Which is the expensive bit.
