These are the last parts from the Electric Blue Plus that sadly succumbed to terminal corrosion

click to enlarge click to enlarge click to enlarge

Very good engine - smooth and quiet with great oil pressure (about 2.75 bar fully hot). Compression test results -

Cold - 170, 165, 160, 160, 170.
Hot - 160, 160, 155, 160, 165.

Not bad for 140,000 miles and testament to how it was driven and how it was maintained

£550 collection only (or arrange your own courier - we can strap the lump down to a pallet)

click to enlarge

6-speed gearbox - £350 collection only

click to enlarge

Aftermarket oil cooler with flexi pipes - no more corroded pipes! £250 + £12 P&P

click to enlarge

Aftermarket downpipe - Not sure what diameter, but it looks like about 2.5" or a little larger. Has been lagged with heatwrap to keep the exhaust temps up (helps flow) £150 + £15 P&P

click to enlarge

Standard turbo - very good - no discernable play at all (other than the usual movement you get with a journal-bearing turbo). Don't worry about the oil - it was a very leaky camcover gasket.... £250 + £15 P&P

click to enlarge

Late-type bonnet struts - were holding the bonnet perfectly well (until I sold the bonnet....) £50 the pair + £8 P&P

click to enlarge click to enlarge

Bailey atmospheric dump valve - not sure which model. Anodised black. Slight rub, as per photo. £30 + £4 P&P

click to enlarge click to enlarge

Hubs - bit mucky, but mechanically sound - complete with ABS sensors - £40 each or £75 the pair. P&P £10 for one, £15 for two.

click to enlarge click to enlarge

Steering rack - £80 + £20 P&P

click to enlarge

Driveshafts - boots are good - £100 the pair or £60 each. P&P £20 for two, £15 for one

click to enlarge click to enlarge

Plus model Brembos and red rear calipers - will split if required. £250 for the set. P&P £15

click to enlarge click to enlarge

Pair of LE / Plus front discs - no lip at all - I would guess that these don't have 1000 miles on them. £70 the pair P&P £12

click to enlarge

Rear light recesses - still fitted to the panel because I didn't want to fight with the sticky stuff.... Slight corrosion to one recess, as per photo. £40 the set plus £10 P&P

click to enlarge click to enlarge click to enlarge

Poly-bushed wishbones - mucky, but solid. Bottom ball joints are fine. £60 the pair plus £15 P&P

I only have one in my personal stock (taken from my old Sprinty)

I've been thinking about having some made - I wonder how strong 3-D printed parts are.....

It depends on the material. Nylon SLS would be more than strong enough. Plus you could beef them up a little - you'd have none of the constraints of injection moulding.

I work in design and prototyping and have often considered getting parts like this made.. haven't found the time yet.

Price reduction on the engine and gearbox before I'm forced to put them on eBay (which I'd really rather not do if I can help it)

Engine - £475
Gearbox - £325

I'll do a deal for both together (engine and box are still bolted together)

Also happy to arrange a cambelt and water pump if required (easy job while the engine's on the floor)
