FS: '98 Boxster parts (hard top, convertible top, bike rack, interior)
 
(Post updated Sept 2 2011)

I'm in the process of turning my very nice 1998 Boxster into a Spec Boxster. Many, many parts have already come off the car and more will as the month proceeds. I am offering these parts for sale, of course! Colors are Arena Red paint, black top and interior with leather, and the usual gray trunk carpet lining.

Pretty much every bit of interior and trunk carpet and trim (except the dashboard face) will be removed, including what's behind the driver such as the roll bar and convertible top. I also have quite a few extra accessories like the hard top and hoist, 18" wheels, Brey-Krause parts, etc. In general, the parts are in terrific shape because I have always garaged and maintained the car well, but it is a 13 yo daily driver so some items have usual wear from use.

I have a page with more info a complete listing of parts and when they will be available if not already. Please email me at (trygve at bombaydigital dot com) if you are interested in something, or want more details about some item, or think I might have something coming off the car that I forgot about.

What color are your seats?

brp987 08-13-2011 06:42 PM

Dibs on roof transport/bike racks.

Nitro 08-13-2011 10:55 PM

Interested in:
- Center Console / Ashtray
- License plate light
- Sun Visors with working doors
- Driver Side Vent
- Passenger Side Cupholder ( style that clips in vent )
- Trim covers by convertible latch ( they cover bolts and motion sensors )
- Driver Side Headlight Pigtail

What color is the rear trunk cargo mat with net and tie-downs?

I'm sure there's more, but that's about all I can think of right now.

Thanks,

Nitro

Initial answers
 
Thanks guys. I am going to take some pictures today and come up with asking prices. In the meantime, answers to your questions:

@ultimate1: seats are black (leather, heated)

@Nitro:
- not sure if I will keep the center console in the race car, but it will probably go
- dash vents will probably all be kept even with roll cage
- I *do* indeed have the cupholders that unfold and snap into the side dash vents
- I suspect most of those little trim pieces will be coming off
- I need to keep the headlights functional, but I'm not sure what "pigtail" you are referring to
- rear trunk mat is gray like the trunk carpet; net is black, tie-down straps are grey

@Shotokan:
- Sorry, the steering wheel is the plain old 4-spoke kind

Thanks for the response -- I totally understand you need to keep some of these. I'm just happy to get some of these and shorten my "to do" list. Looking forward to pics and prices.....

Yes, we will have to wait and see if he decides to sell it, but as I read the order of the comments, I think I am first in line ...... :D :D

Tim -- your car looks fantastic. I saw it among several posted online during my endless internal considerations over the last year about what direction to go for the Spec Boxster. Ultimately, I decided modifying my own car was the way to go for me, partly because I already have money into many Spec parts (and other race required parts) on the car and I know this car's entire history for good and bad. The additional cost of finishing the build will come out a lot less, although that's not including most of the desirable extras you have!

When the time comes to strip the interior, I am pretty certain the center console will go. Of course, it's a large piece, so my preference will be a local buyer with cash so that I can avoid having to pack and ship it.

The visors will go, too. The driver side visor mirror flap doesn't stay up when using the mirror, but other than that they are good.

At some point I'll extend the list to detail the interior items, and ping this thread.

Still have several items ready to go right now -- 18" wheels with very new big meat tires, hard top, Brey Krause roll bar extension, etc. :D

@SF-Rockster - The RTS is sale pending, someone is coming up from LA in a couple of weeks to pick it up, so unless that falls through it's taken. The hard top asking price is $1200 and I also have a Sto'Away ceiling hoist/storage system for it. I'm in Alameda. Check out the pictures and details on the listing page:

Many more parts are off the car and available now!

Please check the linked page and the PDF file with the full spreadsheet of info and status.

Thanks,
Trygve
