LOWER REAR FENDER REPAIR LH MK1-MK3 SPIT
LOWER REAR FENDER REPAIR RH MK1-MK3 SPIT
Fender repair pieces to replace my rotted out panels, I don't need the entire fender and these are significantly cheaper than a whole fender. The look just spectacular, painted black. Wonder how hard they will be to install, wonder if that is weld-through primer-ed, yah right.
ROCKER PANEL LH MK1-MK3 SPIT
ROCKER PANEL RH MK1-MK3 SPIT
These are the big boys and are just like the fender repairs. Just beautiful new metal to replace my rust-puckered ones. Originally, these were $20 cheaper each from VB, with the Winter Sale, on missing the sale, It was cheaper from Spitbits. Also with such a good reputation from the NASS folks, the order shift was easy to justify in my mind.
One of my dogs, Peanut (or NuttNutt as we call him) was watching me take a picture of the parts. He had a confused look on his face and quickly lost interest in what I was doing. Stupid human pointing something at a bit of something on a box, shouldn't you be getting me a treat?
TRUNK SEAL MK1-MK3 SPIT
Significantly cheaper here and from what I received, the quality is very acceptable.
HINGE GASKET SET MK1-MK3 SPIT
Back-ordered, really a snafu but quickly remedied. I saw it on the packing list and not in the box and became immediately concerned. Friday, March 19, 2010 11:05 AM I inquired about it via e-mail. Friday, March 19, 2010 01:34 PM, I got a reply from Nigel himself explaining it was on back-order and he missed noting it in the invoice, offering that I could cancel it if I needed to. I am in not immediate rush for it so I can wait. It was handled quickly, professionally, and personally. Can't ask for more than that in today's automated society.
CHROME BOLT WITH WASHERS MK1-MK3 SPIT (2req)
Will be used to attached the convertible top to the body. Well, whenever I get the top, I will have them ready!
