181 Swap and Sell

Post by Bob Ingman » Thu Aug 07, 2003 12:38 pm

In the past we`ve used this thread as our own 181 classifieds. Its good to begin again periodically.
If you have for sale items or wanted items this is the place to display them.
If they are not 181 items then use the STF general classifieds. Good luck. Bob Ingman

In the name of Bob Ingam I say Bump


Lets get STf back to a tech forum for Thing owners.. K-mann

I am looking for a good set of metal floorpans. I have some fibergalss ones if someone can give me a decent price. I would also like a good passenger front fender, and also looking for seat tracks. I am very negotiable to the price.

Nick I got my metal pans from Things Unlimited now www.thingparts.com They were good pans at a good price.
For a front fender after being hit by a deer I pounded it out in a couple of hours it was straight and filled. Fenders can be such a hastle when the bolts are rusted and beading is bad. If its a driver give it a try before going to the expense and labor of swapping.
I think Mike Basso(Thing Parts.com) will also have the seat tracks you need. He has both new and used items galore. Good luck. Bob Ingman

I have two full sets of original front Thing brake parts to include drums, shoes, cylinders and all associated parts. I also have a few pairs of Thing rear diagonal arms. All parts are factory original parts in great condition. A pair of orignal Thing front seats are available. Also a pair of complete rear axles with CVs and boots.

Airhead while youre looking for thing axles and joints also look for the same from the Porsche 924/944. They are identical and usually sell for about one quarter of the price. Best of luck. Bob Ingman

I have two pairs of axles. I would rather take the CVs off since they are old and not reliable. What are they worth?

Hi There,

Anyone have a spare electric motor from a BN4 heater that they would like to sell? Mine seems to be having a few issues?


Thanks to Bob Ingman for making "181 Swap and Sell" a sticky!

*update* found some spare parts! Just have to finish the transaction, and I just might have some heat.

P.S. Mike Basso @ Things Unlimited has heater cores for $75.00 if anyone else needs heater stuff.

Not only do I have a "plethora"of Thing parts that I would like to trade, I just had a long talk with a "former" Thingster who has an extensive inventory of primo Thing parts -- fenders, wiper motors, mirrors and more. His prices are way out of line but he lives just down the road and I intend to work to get the parts for us. Anyone interested email me so we can work out a plan for a group buy.

My Thing parts currently available include

6 stock Thing rims
like new gas tank
rear diagonal arms
two front sets one rear set of complete Thing brakes
tons of other small parts
