73 walkthough wesite dilemma

  1. Hi there,,
    Im hoping you guys can help.
    I have a 73 westie continental walk though project,,, i bought it 2 years a go with the intention of restoring it,, but due to not having the time i havnt really got anywhere with,, except for accruing lots of parts/panels for it..

    So having bought a 72 crossdresser westie 2 weeks ago its time to let the project go..

    I bought it of a guy who had the same idea as me from what i can tell its been of the road for 20yrs,, it has the westie interior its complete form what i can remember ( all ready removed when i bought it and dry stored in garage)it has its engine (last run 2 yrs ago for 5 mins,, then removed by me and dry stored in garage ,,.. both front seats are original and still useable,, (they need a good scrub) its has all its glass inc the two louvered window units

    Like all uk buses its bottom area is rotten and i mean rotten, the compete lower 8" front to back needs doing..

    i have a huge amount of new panels inc front panel , lower panel,, deformation panel,, a pair of cab floor halves,, pair of front arches with steps,, /n/s passenger inner and outer sills,, i beams and top hats,, a pair of cargo floor halves (lhd) n/s rear arch panel,,, pair of rear corners,, battery tray and more,,

    i also have a pair of us import cab doors ,, a decent sliding door,,, good engine cover lid etc i even have a y spliter pipe for the heater tubes of the rear end.
    But it needs a lot of welding,, so in=t needs some who can weld or has deep pockets

    So do i
    A ....wait for the right person to come along and buy it as a job lot
    B.. sell it as a empty engine less rolling shell and part the rest out bit by bit ,
    C...do the unthinkable and cut it up for bits and part it all out..

    Depends how much time you want to put into it.
    Breaking it / parting it out will be a lot of effort and you'll get bored of getting dozens and dozens of messages for the smallest of parts. You'll also spend a fortune on postage which buyers will baulk at.
    Price it fairly, bung it on eBay and it'll be gone by next weekend.
