CMGC Parts Locker Clearance         These items must be gone by the end of July.
We have recently reorganized the club's stock of used parts, and are out-of-room at the storage locker. The following items are destined for the scrap yard unless someone buys them quickly: MGB windshield (cracked)with good useable frame; several MGB seats; a complete wire wheel rear axle (Salisbury type) w/hubs and drums - if you have contemplated converting your Rostyle wheel car to wire wheels, you will need a complete rear axle such as this (and we also have the necessary front hubs for wire wheels). We also have two MGA hoods and an MGA trunk lid - these will not be scrapped but are awkward to store & we would like to sell them soon. Contact Dave Evans, through the website classified page or at 630-462-9181.
