Garage clear out time now that Coupe bits are filling it up faster than I can make space for. The stuff that immediately comes to mind is:

GRP Coupe roof panels painted gloss black on the outside, carpet on the inside and with all fittings attached. Trial fitted them once, iirc the carpet could do with a little trim to clear the roof seals, then did nothing with them for 7 years :lol:

FSE adjustable fuel regulator (used), a pressure gauge that screws in to it (new), and a K series plastic fuel rail with a new FSE adapter fitted in place of the OE regulator.

A quick ebay search suggests people are still buying MEMS2 VVC inlets, got at least 2 complete ones with injectors that I'll never need. £30-40 sound about right?

Set of R8 Koni reds all needing a refurb - these worth anything at all?!

K series 52mm TB

Corsa C rear bumper in black - ok condition

R8 Coupe rear bumper in tahiti - ok condition nothing special, chip in the top by the boot iirc.

R8 rear disc non-ABS trailing arms

Ti front brakes - calipers and ground-out carriers

ZR 160/ZS 180 front and rear calipers

Bound to be more mundane stuff too, but any ideas on what those are worth?

Do you just like to criticise me on every post ?
I am a manual worker who looks at posts from the other side of the world 11hrs infront looking on my phone while at work and miss certain points.

Yes I would be interested in the FSE if you sell.

I think the GRP roof panels were about £70 or so Stef

Re- reading it does sound harsh. :(

I wonder if the roof panels are what I had made.

I recently paid 150 quid for some kind yellows and am sending them for refurb.
I'd have bloody preferred reds..oh well.

In short koni don't make shocks for coupe anymore so the only option is to buy used and fit or refurb.

I think Dom was after soon but they're deffo worth something.

Refurbishment cost is around 250 quid for blasting painting and regarding etc.

That's the place I called matey and quoted the shocks I have...I was told around 40 quid a shock and additional 40 or 50 quid for blasting, powder coating and painting.

Prices go up over time I suppose, still pretty reasonable compared to what all the other outfits were quoting! One of the others on the koni page wanted £70-90 per shock + VAT!

You could maybe reduce costs by getting them to send you the bodies and getting them blasted and powder coated yourself, or do what I did with my yellows and just grind them back to bare metal with a wire wheel on a grinder, then etch prime, tetraschutz and paint all with rattle cans. Powder coating is great until it gets a chip...

Anyways this is a what's it worth thread, just interested in prices for now and a sale thread will follow, first refusal to people who have expressed interest.

I'll get some pics of the roof panels, fuel stuff and shocks after I've cleaned them up.

Dug some more stuff out of the garage at the weekend. What do Coupe fog lights go for these days? They're a bit crusty but in my experience they always are. Photos are crap, one pair is amaranth (purple) and the other tahiti.

Also found a pair of R8 headlights and rear light clusters that look ok, tenner each? Fiver for the indicator? One of the mudflaps has an inch long crack/tear in it, might see if some araldite will sort that out, tenner the pair?
