This is by no means a way to safely elevate a vechicle in order to perform repairs. You should always use jack stands on a solid surface as well as following common sense.

The parts car is nearing the end of it'* usefullness. It'* more of a storage locker now than a resource for parts. There are only a couple of more items to remove then... it'* off to the crusher. It has served me well as I have harvested many parts for the 93 and also was able to sell quite a few parts. I think this car has been a great investment and I think my wife is begining to see this too!!

I have my eye on a 94 SSEi for another parts car but will have trouble with storage (note sanding/plow truck in the background) Winter is coming.

That looks just like my parts car did. If you have room get the hood trunk and doors, you never know when someone will hit you in a door.

Hood definately! I need to experiment with the hood scoop idea that came out a few weeks ago.

Yeah, trust me guys, DON'T go under a car supported by anything other than jack stands, on LEVEL, HARD ground [not grass, dirt, gravel]. I am wary of the plywood I have under my car.

Looks interesting... My bonneville has met the power of a cinder block... except mine is holding the trunk shut... stupid latch stopping working.

How much more you removing from that before you junk it? Does it have the console? Might be interested in that for some testing... what are the miles on it?

Car has 146K miles. The only thing left in the interior is the carpet and the rear pad. The carpet does have some stains but no holes. If you want a console for testing, you are welcome to what is left from the SSEi. The console in the 93 now is a combination of original parts, parts car parts and new ones from GMPD. I still need the vents and the cig lighter element to be complete.

I think I'm going to get almost everything out of the car that can be removed easily. Doors hood and trunk as Damemorder suggested, engine, trans and cradle assembly, and some sheet metal chunks for rust repair. Heck, I'm thinking of fliping the thing on the roof to get the fuel lines, control arms and other things on the bottom. Those big tires you see in the second pic go to some big equipment. :P

You are also welcome to the trunk latch. We can call it your delivery charge.
