testing the water... My pickup might be for sale

Post by johnnyboy666 on Thu Jun 12, 2014 8:53 pm

Evening.

A recent change of circumstance has left me questioning whether keeping my pickup is a viable option, so I thought I would see if there would be any interest if I was to put it up for sale. Have a look through this thread for details:
http://hijet.findtalk.biz/t2104-bit-of-a-project-thread

Its recently had the gearbox changed, and its an ongoing project so will need finishing off (but it does drive and stop etc) MOT and tax are about to run out, and I cant really justify taxing 3 vehicles at once!



I will probably regret it, and I wont let it go for naff all. Worst case scenario, it goes in storage for a while so I can focus on the 205's.

I'll get some up to date photos and a spec list if there is any interest.

located in Derbyshire.

Half finished projects are not big sellers.

put the rear body back on it, a set of matching wheels and an MOT and then its a hot seller.

Also the exhaust pipe work sticking out isn't good.

Don't worry, it's been tucked away for the time being...

Good choice. How much work does it need before its drivable?

It's driveable now, but for the Mot it'll need shorter rear shocks (working on that still), a windscreen washer jet, and I'm going to remove the load compensator in the brake lines and put an adjustable bias valve in instead, which will probably involve replacing at least some of the brake lines. And I'm going to put fresh discs on the front.
Due to an 'incident' the exhaust needs a slight adjustment too

That being said, I've just bought yet another 205 so the pecking order may change!

Van rear shocks are shorter than pickup rear shocks.

Off the top of my head, I guess about 3 inches or a bit more maybe.
