No, sorry Dave, that tub is resting on the chassis from Steve Matthew's previous car. I finally just found a front clam for it so it will start being re-assembled from scratch later this year. The mustard car is back from repaint after 8 years, so it is getting closer to the main shop every day. I have another RHD tub over here I grabbed many years ago that I might have enough parts now to reassemble and make functional. It has been the mock-up for the shift cable assembly process, so it has been very helpful.

This tub is a UK/RHD version I bought a few years ago from an eBay seller that got tired of trying to sell off the car parts and just sold me the remainder. I was over last October and finished stripping it and crated everything I could use to ship to the US. I can't thank Phil W enough for all of his help in that endeavor

We were so busy, I never got a chance to take a picture of it after we were done stripping it.

Wayne might be going over there later next week and maybe he will take some pictures for me. It is just the main shell less doors, boot, stowage cover and just about everything else we could unbolt. I think it was a 5 degree rear suspension version chassis, so quite early.

Or made to measure in perspex for about a tenner. You'd have to trim the corners, though.

Alas the auction has reached its time limit but hopefully the seller will list it again! :-D

Where exactly is the value in these if they are shagged ? The frame ?

That ad. for the extortionate seats is by LEC's very own Jamie, as in rear hub conversions.

Times must be hard in N Berwick :twisted:

You mean Jeemy (LEC ID) who goes by Jamie.

The seat frames, squabs (bolsters/cushions) reclining hardware and seat belt latches have some value. The seat suspension units might be usable, but they would be tired and likely to crack if removal was attempted. If someone wanted to return a car that had a different style seat set installed might need them as a starting point.

No. The person selling the knackered seats is LEC Jeemy from North Berwick (rear hub conversions, S/S rear wishbones, SVS Performance https://specialistvehiclesolutions.com/ etc....)

Jeemy here..... memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=8555

Not to be muddled up with LEC Jamie the Seal who lives in Fife (developer of the rubber seals, builder of Stratocaster guitars, Honda engine conversions etc....)

Jamie here.... memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1485

They are 2 separate and entirely different people

I knew that, just worded the same details, just did it differently.

Jeemy's name is Jamie and he uses that when he communicates with anyone.

Sorry for any confusion.
