A real OG 73 thing engine shroud is a sought after part. Expect to pay good money for one. Thye are never cheap. There are lots of after market shrouds that are free of the clean air ports that sell for much less.

I'm in need of a wiper motor. I'm coming up on inspection to get plates and it's the only thing I'm down to pass. Anyone have one that works that they're looking to get rid of?

I'm in the process of changing out my engine, and I've got a few parts for sale.

Used oil bath air cleaner: $100
It's in good condition and looks a lot like this:
http://www.thethingshop.com/detail.asp? ... 181129613B
If you don't have one, you'll need to get an elbow - The Thing Shop has 'em.

Used oil bath air cleaner bracket: $20
Also in good shape. It held the above air cleaner on my car for the last 8 years.

Used Thing Shop divided header exhaust: $100
http://www.thethingshop.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=181DH
This one is about 7 years old. I sandblasted it the other day and my neighbor repaired (TIG weld) the two holes that it had. I can send pics of this one if you're interested. Also included are my old J-tubes - which are not sandblasted and are pretty cruddy, but will get you by until you pick up a new pair for $15ish.

Soon, I'll have my old tranny for sale as well.

I'm in Sunnyvale, CA. E-mail me to arrange shipping.

I bent my front lower driver side trailing arm in an accident and need to replace it.

Anybody got one they want to part with?

By posting his request here, Ian was able to his arm in days for a very good price. This system works.. HotrodVW: Vince has an original 73 Thing shroud for sale on the Samba classified ads. I seriously doubt you will ever find a original factory one that is "cheap"
