Carlisle 2013 Buy/Sell/Trade

Post by DPDISXR4Ti » Thu Mar 21, 2013 3:17 pm

Carlisle is a great time/place to buy and sell Merkur-related parts - after all, you're already there any way! It's especially helpful when buying/selling parts that are big and/or heavy, and thus difficult/expensive to ship.

If you have any parts you want to Buy/Sell/Trade, post them up in this thread so everyone will know what they should bring to the event (parts and/or cash!).

Please keep comments to a minimum - this thread is not for banter, but rather for listing your items for sale (FS) or wanted to buy (WTB). In fact, please preface in the subject heading with "FS" or "WTB" accordingly (I guess I should add, "WTT" if you want to trade something). If you want to communicate with a person who has posted in here, please take it to PM and arrange payment details and when/where to meet up. I'd also suggest exchanging cell phone #'s so it's easy to track each other down.

Ready, set, go!

FOR SALE : MERKUR DEPOT PARTS

Post by merkurdriver » Thu Mar 21, 2013 5:36 pm

Fantasic idea as Carlisle 2012 was the largest Merkur swap meet that I have ever seen. :headbang

I'll edit/update this post as the time draws nearer and nearer. But I'll take this time to say I can bring any part from our inventory with me. Fenders (NOS and used), bumpers, grilles, wheels, transmissions, dashes, seats, etc. etc. etc.

CARLISLE SPECIAL DEAL - 10% OFF ANY ITEM ON THE WEBSITE http://www.merkurdepot.com Special offer only for Carlisle attendees paying with cash.

We will be arriving Saturday morning again this year and set up in the hotel parking lot as per usual. Any items not paid for/collected by Sunday morning will be offered to the person "second in line" who showed interest. So, even if something appears to be spoken for, please state your interest as second.

Thanks to modern technology we will be able to swipe credit cards on site right there in the parking lot! Paypal payments also possible on site as well. Cash is always preferred however as we don't get hit with the transaction fees.

For Carlisle weekend only we will be offering new NOS XR and Scorpio front fenders for only $100 each! (pics and regular price shown at http://www.merkurdepot.com)
This is $30 off the Scorpio Fenders and $70 off the XR4Ti Fenders!

From a european 2.9 V6 4x4 car, so input shaft is Scorpio friendly at the moment. Want to stick this behind a 2.3 / XR4Ti?

I would like to buy a bi-wing hatch in good condition. I will be staying at the Raddison.

Thanks
