So in an effort to claim back space in my garage, I want to start cutting up the donor Zed. I had aquired this car mostly for the roof and a few other patches of skin. The car was hit from the rear and the front but a lot of the car has useable panels. I don't think I'll be using all of it so I'd like to get rid of anything useful to other people and also see if there are any EOI on any of it.
The previous owner took the floor, both rocker panels and cut up the rear tail panel and both ends of each quarter panels.
Still has wheel arches, firewall, engine bay rails, spare wheel well, bent up front end(not too bad) I will post photos when I get on my PC.
As I've never cut up a car before I was wondering if there was someone in Sydney that might want to help in exchange for panels/skin - negotiable :) I don't want to make the mistake of cutting through a useful panel just because I got carried away with a grinder.

I can email photos of the car if any one is keen.

Hi mate,
Yes I see a few sections I wouldn't mind for myself. Can you send me a PM with details and availability?

Cheers,

Something else to do if you come to Sydney - I can supply the 9" grinder, or a 14" 70cc two stroke version if you prefer

Cheers

Hi Scotty,

 

Hmmm…I’m thinking pretty much you got this off George out Campbelltown way? ( which, if so means he also showed you his Black Beast … nice hunh J

 

If you have not sold the nose area ( radiator support ) and wish to sell please email, SMS or give me a bell.

 

Happy to come and remove myself.

 

In doing so you will prevent me taking to the shell I have (fairly intact ) with an angle grinder so I can then pass it on as is and keep a Z chassis alive for re-build.

 

Ta dude.

Hi Guys,

 

Sorry! should probably updated this sooner! Brabham has helped me cut this up over the last couple of weeks and we have split the parts up, I've only taken the roof (as that's all i really bought it for).. and i also took another smaller panel. Alex has the remaining shell and might be happy to part out if you asked him nicely?  ;D

 

I'm always keeping an eye out for another shell cause i need a good rear cut. - Obviously they don't come up often but if i catch wind of something, i'll post it up.

Yes this was George's, he took quite a bit of the shell/skin before i got it, the only real good part was the roof. - And yes, his car is a piece of art! He had a few parts he was trying to unload on me, he might still have? not sure if he's active on this forum much? Nice bloke though!

Yeah- George is great- VERY thorough and a true sad story about the Silver Shell you had ( the prang he had the day he put it on road ).

 

Glad to hear it all went well.

 

The rear on my shell is rusty, its been asked about before. I grabbed it off Bardan (Import Monkey ) last year but cant bring myself to destroy the chassis.

 

Is Alex the Alex panel beater with the 2+2 he is restoring ?
