Re: 2.5 td

I would advise not going down this road trying to make a 19j. You will save yourself a lot of money by just buying the 200tdi

That being said I have almost everything to make a 19j and would be willing to sell it.

2 used 109 frames - Sand blasted - Free

Hi, I have 2 109 frames that have been sandblasted and some welding has done on them. Both frames have solid parts on them and could be made into one solid frame, or bits cut off.

I will keep them until the end of January and then they will go for scrap if no one is interested in them.
