Sorting out spares.

Spring cleaning? Sorting out spares and general rubbish. I've too much stuff, kept in damp garages so a pile of brake shoes, distributors, and ignition switches and some old body panels/engine covers are all going in the bin.
Some of the larger items I will be selling. I have to raise some cash and also make room for a twenty one year project vehicle that I hope will come home in the next couple of months.
It's been away some time for welding and spraying but its long over due return is nigh.
I have other J type spares still needing to be sorted out as well as some more cab and rear doors that I'm keeping as I have a project JB van that needs them. I was going to restore this van but for various reasons it is now for sale. Only two offers for the van both I felt were rather low, so I will be e-baying it shortly and let a nutter turn it into something else.
I had thoughts of doing the same a nice pick-up truck but doubt I have the time even to rip off 80% of the tin body work and make a wooden flat bed.
So here are a few of the items that I will be selling shortly.

 GPO cab opening windscreen. (since yesterday I've had two offers for this!)

Front panel SOLD!

Drivers side door, has been repaired with an Aluminium sheet!

Nearside rear door, damage to lower outer corner.

Nearside rear door, corroded lower inside skin.

 GPO rear doors, more holes than metal!! Somebody might have use for the hinges.
Very good N/S/F door, mainly surface rust only.

Three headlamps, one Lucas bulb, two H4 bulb.
