Type 181 Thing Safari Parts Exchange

Post by Kubelmann » Fri Apr 06, 2007 12:16 pm

As a suggestion from a STF Thing poster I was asked to create a parts exchange sticky. So, here it is

Let me get the ball rolling with a request for a set of door hinge mirror mounts. I will trade Thing parts of equal value for a pair of these.

I may have a set of these in steel. They had the Island brackets cut off them. Is that OK with you?

I also have, totally restored, engine protector plates, (all Four parts) and a complete air cleaner with original carburetor.

I have an Original Hardtop (needs some work) and the interior steel reinforcements that mount vertically to the top.

This thread would be more helpful if everyone filled out their location...with an actual location.
