Marty, I sent a couple of PM's to you regarding the possibility of a good, complete sunroof cassette. Didn't hear from you so I assume they are all gone, but if you have a good one then I may still be interested.

Pierre3.

Sorry, we are travelling around Europe at the moment and not online every day..

I still have the sunroof cassettes, yes. But not sure on condition. I will probably end up taking them home as the scrap metal bin probably won't allow the glass.

I don't know if I'll have time this trip to see how good they are, and not sure the best way to send, probably would have to go on a pallet I would imagine.

I'll have a look at them when I next get to workshop (probably 23rd) and make try to get done pictures for you aswell

Thanks for your reply, Marty. I was aware that you are very busy, and that you would be away in Europe for a while.

Whenever you get the chance to check them out would be fine as I am not in a rush to get a replacement for my own. I have mine currently set so that it is fully closed in the roof space so at least there is no rainwater getting in. I am happy with this for the time being, but I would quite like to have a working sunroof again. I just don't want to put in a cassette in a poorer condition than my own.

I took my sunroof cassette out, about 18 months ago, and at the time I removed the seal around the glass and tidied everything up so, at the moment it is in good shape. But it is non-operational because the motor seems to be knackered, and the cable that retracts the roof seems to be not pulling the glass back for some reason. If I can get a good cassette, without rust or corrosion around the glass, then I would put that it in so that I can let out the flies and bees from inside the car on sunny days !!!!

Marty, I'll be down on the 23rd to pick up the steering column, ABS modulator and a front bumper to send to Spain and give a hand clearing the remaining stuff out. Do you want me to bring my trailer so I can drop the two engines off at V8Dev to save you having to pallet them up and send by courier?

Anyone else going to be there on the 23rd?

I think Nick is going to come up on the 23rd to grab a couple of bits I have aside for him that didn't fit last time.

Scrap collection of the 98 is on the 23rd aswell as dropping off the metal skip for other scrap.

If you want to bring trailer then worst case you can grab the rest of the bits of wood that you wanted. I still need to finalise the engine stuff with V8 Dev.. they weren't offering that much for everything I have, so might just sell them the engine blocks and a few bits and keep things like the heads as I'm sure I could get more for them just by selling second hand on the likes of eBay, and also keep a spare set for myself.

I don't know what time the scrap collection is - they said he'll call when on the way, but I'll probably be up there from about 0900 to keep tidying stuff up.

It won't be 09:00 but I'll get there earlier than last time, hopefully around 10:00.

All good - I'll mostly be there about then just in case they come early to do the collection.

I'm going to email V8 Dev tonight re the engine parts. Given what they were offering I think I'll keep some of the bits for myself as spares/to sell second hand! But the blocks are definitely no use to me. I'll let you know if I've come to an arrangement with them before you head over.

If there's no need to take the engine blocks, then I'll leave the trailer at home. Quite how something that light weight can cause the whole car to shudder is beyond me, it's fine with some weight in it but when empty it is just a nuisance as it bounces from bump to bump. Everything else will go in the boot or on the back seat. I'll bring my chainsaw to make the big bits of wood fit.....
