Hi, Needing some space in the shed, so will part with some tools and parts gathered over the past years.
Can those learned in the ways of mini please provide guidance on what I should ask for the following items:

1. Harder Spicer single pin 1275 diff with diff covers. stamped A411 8/62 ?
2. Mark 1 grill with moustache (no rust) ?
3. Mark 1 tall lights assembly (no cracks) ?
4. Head lights 1. Lucas, 1. Stanley ?
5. centre console ash trays x 2 not busted ?
6. 1275 complete rocker set. ?
Once I have an idea of worth I'll post in the for sale section along with a heap of other stuff.

Thanks in advance.

I know from buying an old headlight for someone else it cost around $35 for a Lucas. The Stanley is probably worth almost nothing, nothing unless you can find the one odd person who has one blown one in a Japanese vehicle.

I don't think the ash trays would be worth much either, even I have a collection of plastic ones.

Could I suggest that you price the items listed at a value you would consider paying if you were needing to buy that item. Since you are trying to clear out the shed, lower prices would attract more interest. Better a few dollars than taking leftovers to the tip.

Most of the items listed are still available new (at variable quality) and are not rare 'collector items' so you need to be cheap enough to attract people who were otherwise considering new items - especially for cosmetic items like tail lights and grills.

An excellent and accurate answer Bill.
More people selling should take your advice..... That 123456 price people put up in places is ridiculous imho.

Out of curiosity, did you sell the parts you had listed on the 'selling' part of the forum? I sent you a couple of PM, but with no reply.
