The main lists lists below are being slowly updated and some are out of date. At worst ring or email with queries
I use a mixture of part numbers ; some OE , some Minispares ; Panels - some are M-Machine.
If you are unsure what the part might be , put the part number into Google and others who sell it may show you better what it is !
I appreciate this is a bit hard work, but I struggle to do anything more technical at this point in my life given the time available.
If you have the patience to slog through this lot , Thankyou for your patience. Good for you!
If you want to place an order ; Please put details on an email or ring with parts and payment details
New parts regularly in stock listed first then "When It's Gone It's Gone" below .
Unless listing dated 2022 most listings are out of date - I am updating slowly....
New parts :
New stock is sourced from the original manufacturers or from replacement suppliers where we feel the quality is adequate. In some cases we will keep the original part and a replacement and the part number and description will denote one from another.
Some parts are designed by and made exclusively for us .
Used parts :
Part number that starts with U. They will have been checked for suitability for re-use.
Reconditioned parts :
Part number usually has an R at the end of it. These are generally done exchange and the part number will have a similar part number which shows the surcharge that will be taken until a part suitable for exchange has been supplied to us.
Not all parts are listed, so enquire about availability of others
Carriage / Delivery:
Enquire: Small parts up to 1Kg will generally go in the post. Above this , we generally use a carrier as it's cheaper. If we are sending with a carrier , let us know if your'e likely to be in or if the parcel can be left without signature or with a neighbour. Parts can be collected from our premises during working hours.
We have developed a way of putting a new hose on hydrolastic units . We offer (when available) refurbed used units that have been pressure tested,checked and repainted with new gaiter and a new hose . These are done on an exchange basis . For a guide as to what might be suitable for re-hosing , see download below. We also have used units from time to time that we pressure test and sell as they are. £84 surcharge on old unit till returned. This service is only available within the UK
We developed this to be a suitable one for competition as it has the necessary size hole for post 1966 cars and misses anti roll bars , but it is also useful as a means of tieing a car down to a trailer . Requires drilling 4 holes in rear subframe.
We developed the competition front towing eye with the necessary 60mm hole to conform with the new regulations that came in recently for post 1966 cars as it tucks neatly under the bumper and does'nt look too modern compared to a strap. Pictured is when we took the standard Rover type one (painted green) off my Mighty Mini racer and are going to replace it with the comp version. Comes standard in yellow and is supplied with fitting bolt.
A pair of adaptors that bolt to the bonnet to allow it to be opened and propped open as normal or removed. Simple to fit - the existing hinges are retained and the threaded part of the stud on the hinge is removed. Supplied with fittings. 1969 on cars (hinges at edges of bonnet type) Mk1/2 type also available.
I have loads more Used and New Old Stock (N.O.S) parts and used stuff not listed.
Hopefully I will find time to list it better ...one day
