Hello,

Does any one else have a lower passanger side front trailing arm? I installed one I got from someone on here (it was free so no reason to name anybody) and found out it is bent.

PM for details, shipping.

Thanks

I just picked up a complete rolling pan from a thing..

Only bought it because I've never known a donor pan.

if anyone needs anything from it - let me know.

Drive axles and CVs are gone.

SOLD

1974 THING- drive it home in So Cal Price: $4600
1974 VW Thing. Good condition. Picked it up to build an offroader...but then found a completed offroad one I couldn't turn down.
It's got a good top (maybe 2 years old) , new side curtains, new carb, just got a clean bill of health from the local import shop.
Body is straight....a few scratches, but no damage. The pan has a repair under the battery, and has some rust, but is solid. I believe the car is probably 90% original.
Needs nothing to drive it daily. The drivers seat could use some attention, and probably new tires if it is to be a driver, as these are showing some dry cracking.
My wife wants to keep it (she says it's cute), but we don't need another car. Let me know what questions you have.

I'm also looking for some thing output flanges for my 924s/944 suspension mod. If anyone knows where I can pick some up, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Chris

No worries, I just picked up a couple of things that have rusty bodies, and are getting turned into more Desert style cars, so i have a bunch of stock stuff to unload.
