    I have been having lots of requests for Mondeo bits from my ebay ad.

    I have had a few for things like doors and the bonnet.

    What's a good condition bonnet worth? How about each door and each front wing?

    Also, what's the best way to send these around the country?

    Oh, another thing, what's the best way to send a bumper and how should i package it?

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Depends if the company charge for size or weight, either way postage is going to be expensive i would say collection only tbh.

    Check out Parcel2Go, i've sent a few bits and pieces from my Prelude I broke with them, but nothing as large as bonnet/bumper etc.

    I used to use Parcel2go years ago and they did a good job, however a lot of people on this forum through the MM had bad experiences. Never used them again since. No idea if they have improved since then.

    How much money you made out of the motor so far then, my mate has a Ghia x 2.5 (rsap)which has a knackered auto box, just wondering what we could make out of it by selling all the juicy bits?

    Loads becuase it's got RSAP. £200+ front bumper, £150+ for rear bumper, £100+ for sideskirts, £50 for spoiler, £50 for grille if its a proper mesh one.

    Blimey didnt realise the bits were still worth that much, i guess the interior must be worth 200, engine 400, alloys 50 (they are pretty naff!), trip 50? do these prices sound about right

    What wheels? If they are ST24 4 spokes, about 200 quid with tyres.

    What year/mileage is the car?

    Supermarkets and Large Electrical retailers maybe?

    Otherwise the P.O. sell it by the roll if you can get to one before they get there.

    I think I will pop down the supermarket now and see what I can find.
