|11/08/2003 20:30:08||Mr.G.Burrell||I have an old SAAB in my drive which I was going to restore.I bought it approx 3 years ago- I have no registraton documents but reg is CFM 407L.I bought it from a scrap dealer in Stockport who was in the process of having it crushed - it was my intention to restore this vehicle to its former glory.Unfortunately I have been unable to fulfil this ambition and so must let it go.Bodywork is shot but I think there are probably some mechanicals which might be of some good.Its in a bit of a sorry but - it is free to a good home if anyone is interested - all they need to do is come and collect it. Many Thanks

|12/08/2003 21:42:38||John||Nick, thanks for the info. on the CV recon.
If you don't mind me asking, how much did the recon work cost?
|13/08/2003 12:39:23||Nick||Because I needed it done quickly they arranged for my old one to be picked up (cost about £11 for that) It was couriered back to me the next day. Total bill including VAT, courier, boot kit was £66.98 but at least I now have a CV joint that will be solid for many years to come.|
|13/08/2003 15:52:24||Alec||Wow, that seems very reasonable to me. I will keep a note of them.|
|13/08/2003 17:31:04||Nick||The service there was excellent, they even painted the recon joint for me, highly recommended.|
