Not sure if I'm using the correct terminology but I'm fitting new rear shocks and I want to powder coat the pressed steel fabrications that form part of the shock/spring assembly. As that would mean the car being unusable for a week or so I want to get a pair of the housings, blast them, paint them and then have them ready to fit so that I can do the whole job in a couple of hours. If anyone has a scrap pair of shocks that would do.
I'm in Northamptonshire/Warwickshire area.
Thanks, Andrew

Hi Andrew

Don't know if you know, but you can buy these brand new from PFS. Around £40 each.

I do have some used ones available in Nuneaton (£15 each) but they've still got the rear spring/damper assemblies bolted to them. You're welcome to buy a pair from me if you're happy dismantling them when you get here.

James

Cheers James - I'll be in touch next week about this. Thanks. I could also do with the equivalent parts for the front shocks as well - have you got some gash ones of those ? Disassembly no problem.

Thanks Lancer - i may follow this up if I can't get used. I'm having a bunch of other bits blasted and coated so effectively it won't cost me anything to get them done (and I'm happier with the quality of the OE bits)
