Re: Birdcage repair


No problem, you've done the right thing with a UK supplier. Either post or PM your list, if I haven't got it chances are the Thetford Massive have.

Re: Birdcage repair


Have a look through the C3 parts catalogue on my website:

https://www.corvettekingdom.co.uk/categories/all-categories+...

I have most of that in stock and what I don't have I can get very quickly, you can also get a 10% discount on the majority of that using the voucher code Charlieisagoodboy

Re: Birdcage repair


Thanks Scott, I definitely will be asking you for a quote but I don't think I'm going to need much of this stuff for at least 6 months yet, as I've got loads to be getting on with. I'm finding it hard enough to store all the bits I've taken off the car so far without having a load of new bits as well. Of course if I can get a few good secondhand bits now, then it might well be worth finding the space.

Re: Birdcage repair


I only have parts for chrome bumper cars although I think I have a new body mount kit for a 78. When you get around to rear bearings remember I have the set up tool.

Re: Birdcage repair


If you do have a body mount kit, then let me know what you want for it and a loan or hire of the set up tool would be great as well. (Probably some time next year after I've got the body off)
