    Thumbs up 18 interior never used

    I have a never installed, brand new white with red piping interior for an 18. Two buckets, one bench. This interior was never installed, and just sat in storage for a long time. The plastic has gathered some dust, and one of the bucket seats has a small watermark in the underside wood, but as you can tell the seats (tuck and roll leather) are immaculate. If you wanted new ones they would have to custom build them and you'd pay about $2,300 for them. These are available today, and I am selling them for $2,000 + shipping.. or come pick them up. I took the bench seats out for pictures, but as you can see the buckets are still in the wrapper (they come with snaps). Feel free to ask any questions, I'll also take more pictures upon request.

    Only if they sell. I hope they gather as much dust now as they did before.

    This site has tended to be more like a family, with people helping each other, many times above and beyond, extending "brother-in-law" deals on stuff they have that someone else needs, in support of a common interest in Donzis.

    Buying something, and improving it somehow, replacing broken parts, correcting mechanical issues, enhancing the cosmetics, and then reselling it is fine. Value was added that is reflected in the price differential.

    Buying something that others need, and have expressed an interest in, simply to turn around and re-sell it at a huge profit, rubs me the wrong way.

    That's just me.

    I had a chance to buy them. Spoke with the guy on the phone and he told me about this guy from CT that wanted them real bad. I assumed he had a boat they were going in... Guess not. The seller told me he would sell them to me instead because I lived closer and we had a mutual friend. I passed on the seats ( even though I needed them) allowing the CT guy to get them... I assumed he had the same needs as myself. To use them
    He paid $700 for them.
    When I saw the price he was trying to get I had to let the members know. Im all for someone making a buck, but Geeeze thats just not good Karma... Pay it forward.

    Question

    Were these not posted on this site before they went onto the ebay auction site ?
    I thought someone here actually made a deal to buy them before at that time.
    Several other folks were also interested, and were waiting in the wings ?

    Is this another "Flip-for-a-BIG-Profit" situation ?

    They wernt on this site. The seller told me he messed up when he put them on e bay and put them in classified instead of an auction. Seller is from Toms River area. When I spoke with him he told me he needed new tires for his truck so he had to sell the seats. I backed off thinking it was someone in the Donzi Family that needed them as well...

    Yes this is a flip for huge profit... only if they sell
