rear guards for a coupe wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

I did something really silly to my K, and now I need to fix it. does anyone have 2 rear guards for a coupe? doesn't matter if they're rusty. preferably in SE Qld, but I'll freight them if I need to.

A whole car or shell would be OK too. (actually preferable, because I need the bar with the shock mounts and the rear diff mounts as well.

any help greatly appreciated.

cheers,

Matt.

Took a jump at about 140kmh. when we landed, it just turned right. bounced off an embankment, then slid sideways into the poles of a cattle grid.

Still don't know if something broke, but whatever happened, it happened fast. best ride in the park for about 100 metres. And quite a lot of damage as you might imagine.

perhaps if I pick up enough pieces I can build a K from it. (that used to be a rear disc.

So if anyone has some rear quarters, i promise to look after them better than this. :stupid:

Hey Matt, try looking up ebay item 200335857627. Sounds interesting. I wonder if they could help?

Really? Are the MCA bits salvageable?

Yes, one and the same. In a former life I owned a 240k "project car". It had a P76 4.4 V8 in it, and sat in my shed for about 2 years before I saw the light and sold it. Last I heard the new owner was fitting an LS1 and going drag racing
