    818 parts - front end, fuel tank

    My 818 had a fire at the end of last year that completely burned the rear of the car. I decided to rebuild it without the body, kind of an exo-818. The front end body components were damaged but are repairable if anyone can use them. I have basically the entire front end available, body components, structural components, aluminum, etc.

    I also have the factory five fuel tank available that I did not use.

    I have an unused windshield frame and windshield glass.

    Fuel Tank
    The fuel tank has been sealed inside and out with KBS fuel tank sealant. Some additional baffling has been welded inside to help with fuel slosh. A fuel vent rollover check valve has also been installed. Includes fuel pump and fuel sending unit.
    I can ship the fuel tank.

    Windshield and frame
    Unused windshield frame and windshield glass.

    Fenders
    Left and right fenders including headlight assembly. The top of the fenders were burned in the fire and will need to be repaired. The gelcoat burned off. Also, the headlight covers will need to be replaced. Includes carbon fiber dive plates. Left side dive plate has a bubble from the heat. The fenders are structurally fine but the tops need some fiberglass work.

    Hood
    Similar to the fenders. Gelcoat burned off at the rear and will need to be repaired.

    Front end structural components
    Already assembled as pictured. Includes aluminum panels and grill.

    Front nose/grill
    No problems with the nose and includes brake cooling ducts

    Carbon fiber splitter - SOLD
    No problem from fire. Wear from installation and normal use. In good condition.

    These parts are really too big to ship so you will have to pick them up in North Alabama (Huntsville area).

    Make offer

    Not in a need for any parts at the moment but care to elaborate to what caused the fire?

    Not 100% sure of the exact cause since so much burned up in the back of the engine compartment, but I suspect one of the oil lines/fittings from the dry sump tank or cooler sprung a leak and oil hit the turbo or exhaust. I didn't notice the fire until I pushed in the clutch and it went to the floor (rubber clutch line on the trans must have melted), then started looking around to see what the heck was going on. I glanced at the rear view mirror and saw flames under the passenger side hood cover.
