Have a bunch of stuff, more or less odds and ends (extra fenders, doors, Hoods, mirrors,ingiters, trim pieces ect....) That I was hanging on to. For that just in case accident or what not.

Why is it so hard for me to get a sale? Because it's all stock replacements? My prices are super super low compared to Ebay. Willing to meet if need be, just won't ship the big stuff as it's a pain to ship hoods/ body pieces......

In 8 months I've had one phone call about a good trim. Guy said he wanted it and we a time and date as he said he was local and willing to come get it.......never showed......

If you were willing to ship, the body panels would probably sell. Celicas aren't concentrated around any one particular area, so it's hard to sell parts for them unless you can send the part to wherever the buyer is.

Pull-a-Part

This in a nutshell.

I have replaced both doors, both fenders and decklid on Chaos for under $100. We did Crisco's entire car for about the same.

It is hard to beat those prices and convenience.

As a matter of fact, after I replaced Chaos' hood, I literally threw her stock hood in the trash.

IDK about other potential buyers but lack of funds is what keeps me from getting the parts I need to get Prime and the All-trac in better shape. I've been trying to sell stuff as well and no luck here either.

Most odds n ends are easy to get at the junkyard for pennies. The fenders - assuming they are widebody you have to be willing to ship otherwise nobody will buy. If they are narrow body then more likely to be cheaper/easier at the junkyard.

Anyone want some 5th gen fiberglass narrowbody fenders with the cool vents in them? Didnt think so. Ive been trying to get rid of them ever since they came with my car like 3 years ago.

I don't know why it is so hard to sell parts for our cars.

On the other hand, what else would I clutter my garage with?

If you were willing to deliver, one's body system sections would probably offer. Celicas aren't focused around any one particular place, so it's difficult to offer areas for them unless you can deliver the aspect to wherever the customer is.
