    Visiting Scrapyards Thread...

    Righto don't know if the idea behind this thread will take off (we may not be the best region to try it but at least others might see the idea ) but here's the plan...

    For those going to scrappies...
    Whenever you go down to a local scrappy, if you find they've got anything decent (or perhaps just a reasonable amount of Astra's) then stick a bit of info in here i.e. what Scrapyard, what the item/car was, etc.

    Also, if you know you're going to a breakers any time soon, perhaps a quick post in here would be helpful and if anyone wants anything then maybe they could ask you to have a look?

    For those needing to go to a scrappy/those looking for parts...
    Why not post info about whatever you're looking for, so that if anyone know's they're going in the near future, they can perhaps look on here and see what parts people are looking for.


    As I said, this thread may or may not take off. But spreading our part-finding resources and keeping our eyes/ears open for each other like this will mean we can not only pull together as a region, but we might find our required parts a bit easier

    Good idea - we used to do this over on cavweb a while ago, even down to buying requested bits and posting them. The threads were pretty popular too.

    Obviously only works when people actually do pay for the stuff!
