Request.  Anyone heading South on the M1?  2 x car wings from S36 (north of Sheffield) to anywhere further South.  I'm by Fleet Services, (GU51) but drive all over London and much of the south.  Petrol money will be paid.

Do we have anyone near Selby? 

Need to collect a bumper for the AX, if I can't get seller to courier it.

Andyrew is trying to make our Allegro VP a whole car again and would like this to use the lower rear quarter for repairs.

Thing is Nottingham is just a bit too far for me to travel at the moment. Could somebody collect it for me and get it a bit further south for us?

I live near Buckingham but anywhere within an hours drive to meet up would be fine.

I can potentially help with all 3 of these, I'm based in Sheffield and go down to Kent once every 1/2 months. Next due down middle of next month. @Six-cylinder @Alan_Green @DoctorRetro feel free to msg details if still needed.

Thanks the Allegro wing has been transported and in style. It got to ride in Tommyboy's Montego down powered to 1275cc and sharley17194's AX as part of their Grand Tour Lands End to John o' Groats trip.

I'm looking at a set of winter wheels on eBay down in Princes Risborough - what are the chances of anyone being able to get them nearer to the north east area (Durham / Newcastle) ?

If you needed them collected from the ebay seller then I could collect them from Princes Risborough and take them home the 25 miles north to Buckingham. I am a bit restricted as to how far I am comfortable driving at the moment.  If somebody else did not want to get free tea and biscuits at Six cylinder towers then I could take them out to the M40, J10 services or M1, J15a services for there next move north.

Do we still have a Pony Express thread or service? I need a pair of real taillights collected from the Sandleheath - Fordingbridge area. The seller won’t post unfortunately, so I’m wondering if any of our members could assist? 55D674E7-F4B0-4877-ACD7-FD35FF852168.thumb.jpeg.91afad510dde9f474d82d8d016388e5b.jpeg7B0D36FB-8256-47DE-BCF9-D9BA71683951.thumb.jpeg.72cfd7d3df6764a84b228ad07864dea1.jpegD6418C97-7E42-4503-B064-1D5CEF1631E7.thumb.jpeg.955e0617614547a981bb7b7f632be068.jpeg

that is an excellent offer, thank you. I've asked the seller about arranging a courier but if that doesn't happen then I may be calling on your generous favour.

cheers,

gm.

Checkout Paisley Freight online - not sure how they fiddle things but they'll 'ship' most tyres/wheels even though the actual job is usually by APC (other couriers also exist but like APC they will not carry tyres/wheels/car parts [usually]) I've used Paisley Freight to collect (bad idea if the seller is a total kn*b as each failed collection is £10 + stress) but maybe better to  get the seller to book the collection and then you pay them.

Four wheels + tyres = £40 but you need to adhere to their packaging guide (loads of cardboard/bubble wrap/tape)

Last used them two weeks ago for 2 x quad tyres on rims, £19.99 - collected by APC, delivered to me by anon white van man (who was very nice btw)

yep, I've used them a few times. these are just a bunch of scabby steelies with winter tyres so packaging is less critical but I've approached the seller and we shall see what he says.

Anyone in or around West Calder ?

I've seen 1 alloy wheel on eBay, but is collection only (a good 4+hrs away).

If anyone near could collect it and stash it away, then I'd be greatful.

Then just to figure out getting it further south ūü§Ē

Thanks

If you're not in a hurry I could probably grab it next Sunday when I'm over that way.

@Six-cylinder has successfully collected some parts for the French Express that need transporting to Scotland. (Thanks!)

He is near Buckingham, and can also do M40 J10 Cherwell Valley Services. Or  M1 Roadchef J15a.

If anyone could bring them part or all the way north that would be much appreciated. Happy to contribute to costs.

Thanks

 

 

If it helps, I live near @Six-cylinder and work in the Gosport/Southampton/Portsmouth area a couple of days most weeks.

I have a C Class estate. If anyone needs anything that size moving up to the FoD, give me a honk.
