Reasonable eBay seller?

Post by Stish704 »

I’ve found this guy on eBay selling reasonable priced bits.
Sorry if he’s been mentioned before but thought worth sharing.
He has all the little bits we need, clips, screws gaskets etc etc.

Search NotJustFord eBay store. Or Simon_hinsley

Just ordered a couple of bits, namely a bonnet clip as mines had it.

I’ll let you know what it’s like.

Although he is not on here these days Simon is still on the Admin team on here, he is a good bloke. You shouldn't have any problems.

Simon "standard_man" Hinsley is it Peter? I never knew him by his surname!

Always nice to find sellers that don't want the earth for parts, especially if they are used and average quality!

The problem with sellers like that is, there's tons of stuff you didn't think you needed until you see all the nice shiny new bits for sale and you realise otherwise! :lol:

That's the chap Tom. We often don't do surnames do we. I have to rack my brain sometimes for yours but I usually retrieve it eventually 😄

Thanks for the endorsement, as Peter S and Tom mention I’ve been around for a fair few too many years but trying to build up a bit of a spares business .

Trying to remanufacture some parts also , the black anodised stainless screws i am especially pleased with .

Happy to discount larger orders to Laser Page members .

Simon Himsley AKA NotjustFord

My parts tend to represent the cars me and my sons have so in the family we have

3 capris
Classic mini
Mk1 MX5
MR2 turbo
2 x mk4 golfs

There are parts arriving on a fortnightly basis , every penny and more goes into new stock to expand the business .

Thanks to anyone who has bought from me , I have some small SH parts but to be honest the likes of Martin Pawson will more likely help on SH parts .

Not been to a camp in ages would be great to catch up, might even drag stalker along although she now shamefully drives an RS4😂

They let me in with a Z4, so she should be ok.
Though I did also bring beer and sausage rolls. :D
