ECU's really dont sell very well...

Alternators might sell..

Relays could sell I suppose.

The big things that sell are corner lights, turn signals, interior trim pieces, "carbon fiber" pieces, tail lights, emblems, hatch covers, switches, climate control/knobs, shifter bezels, shifters, steering wheels, center caps, speaker covers, battery tie downs, headlight/antenna/wiper motors....

Other than that, if you come across system 10 rear tweeter covers, gt-s gauge cluster, and power seat switch, pick em up for me and ill buy them off you.

You're gonna find that the more you buy, the less you pay. I bought a shizzload of stuff for my MR2 (one part valued at over $200) and the whole lot costed me $150. I ended up reselling a lot of it on MR2OC and making $200. So....I make some profit and got some valuable parts that I wanted. I'm waiting on a good day to go back out there to make another killing.

Yeah thats what im hoping for.

I got paid today from one of my jobs and the paycheck sucked due to having time off at christmas, pissed.

No worries, still hitting junkyard on sat(think i said fri. ment sat. though) and seeing what i can find. Last time they didnt have any 5th gen celicas, which sucked, lots of Rolla's though for those that asked for stuff from them. 0 MR2s though, kinda odd if you ask me.

Ill repost later saturday, got to get my hands on a little more cash before then

Freshnicity

sorry, just got back couple hours ago and was working on my car.

i didnt purchase anything on my list, cause they had nothing, at all.

Found ONE celica, 5th gen, auto gt,90. it DID have the ECU, which im going to go pick up tomorrow afternoon after i work on my car. everything else in that thing was GONE, i mean STRIPPED BARE. No speaker panels, door panels, no dash, no nothing, only thing left was steering wheel,ECU,automatic shifter and some old tires. And the shell of course.

as for the corolla's, i DID find a couple,only one had a gauge cluster,i didnt bother pulling it because i didnt think it was one of the years you specified.

I didnt purchase anything except a MAP sensor and a few relays. Im going back tomorrow though with 2 buddies, and trying to find some of the stuff you all listed. For the guys wanting 5th gen celica stuff, im sorry but they just dont have them out here like that, that ONE i found was stripped bare to hell.

but i can probably get you that gauge cluster tomorrow black and Vik. And 92 if you want an ash tray ill sell you mine out of ST dude, if you really want it.

ill keep a look out tomorrow when i go, i got everything written down.

sorry for the let down, should of spent more time there today, was too busy focusing my car. Give me till the end of next week to purchase and post what i find, i got to do this timing belt and i got work/school all next week.
