Sidewinder Shell (bought brand new last year) ready to paint on ebay (2hrs left)...

Item number: 290198380035
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....80035&_trksid=p3907.m32&_trkparms=tab=Selling

Price is currently £600 with 68 watchers (!)
The shell is in Hull (East Yorks).
Someone'e gonna grab a bargain. Cost me £1k+

SWB Chassis is currently £50 (also located in Hull) with 50 watchers (nearly 19hrs left) and only 1 bid.

Here's the shell blurb from ebay:
BRAND NEW SIDEWINDER SWB BUGGY SHELL

This is a fantastic new fibreglass beach buggy shell, designed to be built
on to a shortened VW Beetle chassis / floorpan (see my other auction
for shortened chassis) and will make the perfect winter project - ready
for the summer months!

Bought direct from Mel Hubbard of Manx Buggies, it is arguably one of
best buggy shells available today. Mel is renowned for producing the
finest shells - his kits have been fitted to more show-winning buggies
than any other UK manufacturer - so you can rest assured that this shell
is of the highest quality in strength, finish and build.

This Sidewinder will suit floorpans shortened for Manx and GP bodyshells
and a few others as well, please ask if you're unsure.

Although created in a similar style to the fashionable original Manx / GP
buggies of the '60's, the Sidewinder features far superior strength and
rigidity, wider wheel arches and improved engine bay access.

The body is exactly as per the photos and comes complete with matching
bonnet (with the latest style of integrated dash) and a pair of sidepods
(£100 new) to give a smooth and clean look to the finished buggy.
The entire bodyshell is in a beige gelcoat and is prepped ready for paint
(or can be left as is).

Unfortunately I haven't had time to progress with this myself as I'm part
way through relocating and am moving house next month - my loss
is your gain n all that.

The shell, bonnet and sidepods cost me over £1000 from new
- compare this shell to the others available on here at £1100, I'm starting
the auction at half that so there's a real chance to grab yourself a bargain!!

Collect or Deliver
The entire shell will fit in the back of a transit van or on a standard length
car trailer (as per photo) and will need to be collected (I may deliver but
this would be at the buyers expense (ie. van hire cost + fuel) and dependent
upon location and a deposit.
I am happy to supply foam to protect the shell from damage whilst in transit.

Want to bid but don't get paid til the end of the month?
I will accept a 10% deposit WITHIN 5 days of auction end and cash for the
remainder on collection 2 weeks after that (3wks total).
ONLY bid if you intend to pay!!

FINALLY - I WILL NOT SHIP THIS ABROAD. I'M AWARE OF THE VARIOUS SCAMS
SO SAVE YOUR TIME & MINE! BID TO BUY NOT TO HAGGLE.

Please contact me if you'd like to view the kit prior to auction end.

Thanks & HAPPY BIDDING!!
