Wanted: Undertray

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

Bump!

I have the blind nuts for the subframe but still need an undertray and bolts. Does anyone have one?

add the phrase 'spare and in good nick '?

the bolts are actually ruddy coarse threaded 'self tappers' , try Screwfix ( https://www.screwfix.com/p/carbon-steel ... pack/40117 )

or I have some left over , liberated from the front wing of a Vectra if you only need the four for postage? you need another two for bottom rear edge of front wings (one each side) and the same around front wing top-edge . ..

probably 'trashed' if you do get one as well; mine is stiched in a few places with cable ties and the 'captive nuts' in the subframe were replaced with pieces of suitable 'tapped' SS plate, pop-rivted into place. I got a stack of ID plates , 5" x 3" approx 18SWG so very handy for these sort of operations :D

There are a load of 440's at Lake's so I'm sure one of them will have one in decent nick... I just need to get there and work out how to get underneath them (the decent looking ones all seem to be on long grass). 

I've also approached W R Composites to copy one which might not be too expensive (he does snow caps and front spoilers at £50 each). I have one to copy but it's not mine to keep, it actually belongs to the car I recently sold and forgot to re-attach it‎!

Right now, I'd love the easy option of one just arriving in the post‎ or me driving somewhere closeish to collect and fit next month. 

I'll give you a shout if I need the bolts, but you are right, they're just generic things so I'll be able to get something locally. ‎
