We bought a vast amount of stock from Rover, obviously, they no longer wanted to supply spares for the P6 or had excess stock. You typically pay 10% of retail but take the lot when buying bulk loads. You go through what is on offer and work out if the nice pieces support paying for the dross items that no one will want. We therefore bought two arctics load. Rented premises in Lancashire. When the stock arrives you discover that some of the nice pieces are not there.
Someone now has to run this in the case of the P6ROC the person did it for free.
You then get people moaning about the price of items - they expect them to be pence and not at a normal rate.
In the end the stock was sold to a trader who eventually off loaded it to another trader. That trader, who I knew well invested a lot of money in having items remanufacturered, including wings. He found that people moaned at paying Ã‚Â£150 per wing - everyone had said they wanted them until it came time to hand money over.
I want to see our cars survive, the above is just a cautionary tale.
