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.

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 break even in the process.  One man’s garage fodder is another man’s gold.

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

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.

Vehicle Wrap to use refinishing your Grill

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.

Front Brake Rotors

Front Brake Rotors – Aston Martin p/n 4G43-28-10265

I ended up changing out my nearly new brake rotors with brand new rotors during the Full Brake Service series of articles.  The front brake rotors I removed were in excellent condition.  I took them to the local brake shop and had them skimmed so that they were perfect and ready to use again.  I then resealed them so they wouldn’t rust (see photo).  They are still 31.6mm thick (new is 32mm).  Minimum thickness is 30mm, so they have essentially 70% life left in them and that should be good for about 15-20K miles.

Offered for $200 for the pair (less than half price). plus actual shipping costs.   These things weigh 27 pounds each, so shipping won’t be super cheap, but this is still a screaming deal.

Rear Brake Rotors

Rear Brake Rotors – Aston Martin p/n 4G43-28-10266

I ended up changing out my nearly new brake rotors with brand new rotors during the Full Brake Service series of articles.  The front brake rotors I removed were in excellent condition.  I took them to the local brake shop and had them skimmed so that they were perfect and ready to use again.  I then resealed them so they wouldn’t rust (see photo).  They are still 29.6mm thick (new is 30mm).  Minimum thickness is 28mm, so they have essentially 70% life left in them and that should be good for about 15-20K miles.

Offered for $200 for the pair (less than half price), plus actual shipping costs.   These things weigh 24 pounds each, so shipping won’t be super cheap, but this is still a screaming deal.

EBC Red Stuff Brake Pads – Front and Rear Set

EBC Red Stuff Brake Pads (Front and Rear)

While doing my series on brakes and brake pads, I tried a few different products.  I used this set of EBC Red Stuff brake pads for about two months.  Then I changed them out for Porterfields to test those.   This set is barely used, maybe 1,000 miles on them at most.  They should last another 15-20K miles.  Or pick them up to use as your Track Day pads.

  • EBC part number DP31908C (front set) and DP31909C (rear set).
  • Condition:  Used
  • Value:  This set will cost you $200 USD online still today

Offered for $50 for both sets (front and rear), plus actual shipping costs.
