Garage Sale

As I tackle projects I seem to accumulate spare parts. Sometimes I take a couple of different approaches to a topic, or I over order bits by accident.  Sometimes generous supporters of the site send me parts to use or play with (which I greatly appreciate).

Rather than me hording them in the shop with them relegated to collect dust for years, I figured I’d offer them up here for anyone interested in buying them.  This isn’t for profit.  I just want to find them a new home, and hopefully generate a few proceeds to buy more parts for projects to create articles and videos from making the site even better.  One man’s garage fodder is another man’s gold.

All the parts are located in Sacramento, California, USA.  If you want to do a drop by to pickup the parts – I’ll buy you a coffee!

If you’d like to purchase an item, please reach out to me on the Contact Page.


Right Hand Front Fender / Wing – New

Yup, I have a brand new factory right hand front fender for a DB9 (2004 thru 2012).  Why?  No – I didn’t crash Princess Piddles!  A generous reader/viewer Manuel Tollini was kind enough to donate this item to support the site.  He upgraded from a DB9 to DBS, and had these parts in his garage.  Manuel stopped by the shop and we swapped stories and discussed all sorts of neat projects.  Thanks Manuel!

I was surprised to learn the Aston Fenders are a light weight composite.  I’m not exactly sure what, but it’s not Aluminum, not fiber glass and not carbon fiber.   Was likely state of the art back in 2004 when the car was designed.

The condition is 99%.  As with any new shipped large body part there are a few minor scuffs to the primer from sitting around the shop and on shelves, and the pointy tips of the corners have a very minor chip.  Any new fender needs final body work prep, so this is easy for them to perfect as they fit to your Aston.  I will send pics/video of the fender so you can be assured what you are getting.

Offered for $1,750 USD plus actual shipping costs.   Packing and shipping this will be the biggest challenge – it’s nearly six feet long.


Left Hand Side Sill – New

Another donation from Manuel Tollini that he had purchased and donated to the site.  This is the exterior lower sill that runs along below the door front to rear.  It’s made of some flexible plastic material and finished in factory grey primer.

It is a brand new factory part.  The condition is 99+%.  As with any new shipped part there are a few minor scuffs to the primer from sitting around the shop and on shelves.  Any new body panel needs final body work prep, so this is easy for them to perfect as they fit to your Aston.  I will send pics/video of the fender so you can be assured what you are getting.

Offered for $250 USD plus actual shipping costs.   Packing and shipping this will be a challenge – it’s over six feet long and flexible.


Mass Air Flow Sensor Tube – New

Aston Martin p/n 4G43-12B612-AB

Another donation from Manuel Tollini that he had purchased and donated to the site.  This is a brand new OEM Mass Air Flow sensor tube.  This connects between the airbox in the fender well and the flexible tube that connects to the throttle body air intake.   It has a slot in it that holds the actual mass air flow sensor (that is a different part).  This part can get cracked at the airbox end where the flanges engage.  If you need a new one, here’s your chance.

  • Aston Martin part number 4G43-12B612-AB
    • Body – Engine Electronic Mass Air Flow Sensor
  • Available from Scuderia Car Parts online for about $21 USD (plus tax and ship).  Could this be the least expensive bespoke part ever for an Aston?

Just looking for a new home for it.  Offered for $10 USD plus actual shipping costs.


Battery Conditioner Link Lead – New

Another donation from Manuel Tollini that he had purchased and donated to the site.  This is a brand new OEM Battery Conditioner Link Lead.  In the boot of the DB9 you have the connector for the battery conditioner.   This is internal cable to make that work.  If yours is damaged or worn out here is what you need.

Just looking for a new home for it.  Offered for $20 USD plus actual shipping costs.


Transmission Valve Seals – Medium and Long – New

Only the Medium and Long is for sale

During my Transmission Service video series I ended up with a couple of extra ZF brand mechatronics valve seals.  Specifically the medium and long length ones.  One extra of each.

  • Medium – Aston Martin part number 4G43-29401-BA – Sealing Sleeve (31.40mm long) –  Qty 1.
  • Long – Aston Martin part number 4G43-29401-CA – Sealing Sleeve (40.70mm long) – Qty 1.

Offered for FREE plus actual shipping costs.   I just don’t want to throw them out.  You’ll still need to buy the two ‘Short’ ones online elsewhere.


PCV Air Return – Right Hand – New

Aston Martin PCV Vacuum Harness – Right side – p/n AG43-9E498-BA

During my PCV Valve Replacement Series I ordered ‘The works’, and got more than I needed.  One of the bits was the right hand stainless steel PVC air return line.

Offered for $100 USD plus actual shipping costs


PCV Air Return – Left Hand – New

Aston Martin PCV Vacuum Harness – Left side – p/n 4G43-37-10289

During my PCV Valve Replacement Series I ordered ‘The works’, and got more than I needed.  One of the bits was the left hand stainless steel PCV air return line.

Offered for $100 USD plus actual shipping costs


PCV Valve – New

Aston Martin PCV Valve p/n 34-85327

During my PCV Valve Replacement Series I ordered ‘The works’, and got more than I needed.  One of the extra bits was the the actual PCV valve assemblies.  Turns out they were already pre-installed in another part I had purchased, so this is extra.  A DB9 needs Qty 2 of these (and I only have one for sale here).

Offered for $20 USD for Qty 1 plus actual shipping costs.


Vehicle Wrap to use refinishing your Grill – New

During my grill refinishing series I ordered about twice as much vehicle wrap as needed to do the project just in case I had to redo anything.   Now I have enough left over for someone to do the entire grill wrapping project on their car.  As long as you like the color this would be perfect for your project.

Offered for $30 USD plus actual shipping costs.

Magic Paint Stripper Combo for Grill Refinishing

During my grill refinishing series I had ordered several 1 quart containers of various chemicals to do the paint stripping.   After the project was completed, I still had 1/2 quart of each, enough to easily complete the project again.  So, if you are about to undertake the same task, here’s where you can get them for free.  All I ask is you pay the actual shipping.   Its only feasible to sell these to someone in the mainland USA for shipping purposes (else it would be cheaper for you to just go buy your own)

  • Approx 1/2 quart of Methelyne Chloride
  • Approx 1/2 quart of Klean Strip Aircraft Paint Stripper (non-methelyne chloride formula)

Offered for free.   You pay the actual shipping costs.
