Stan, I'm after the passenger side C pillar trim (between the rear window and right rear passenger door, roof to seat back top).

Gray, for the SLE, not camel (tan) for the SSEi.

Guys, I was in that car. Both passengers would have had injuries, but not life-threatening.

I gotta tell you, that'* pretty close to the worst car I've seen in a JY. usually anything that bad just gets crushed.

The only ones I've seen worse were a Dodge van that had been hit head on by a semi(only thing that could have caused the damage particular to that one). I had caved in the entire front, to the point that the front edge of the roof had folded down hit the driver'* headrest, then shoved past it, ending up curled behind the seat. Also, the motor was gone, and the passenger footwell was split open, with a white dress sandal sticking out of it...

The other was the only PA of my generation I've ever found in a junkyard. It looked like it had been hit head on by a bullet train. The entire front end had been shoved into the passenger compartment, and the front half of the floor and roof had been turned back in on themselves, so that the dashboard was shoved into the area above the parcel shelf. The front seats were completely pretzelled. (Is that a word?) I can't for the life of me figure out why they had put it in a pick-n-pull yard. There wasn't a single recoverable part on the car. The rear wheels were out of round, and the front end had been hit so hard that it simply blew the back bumper off... I can only figure that someone had to have hit it at well over 100MPH while it was parked, because the airbags hadn't gone off.

I have pictures of the van somewhere, I'll find them tomorrow, but the PA I didn't have my phone with me.

The worst I've seen was a 99 Grand Prix. It had been hit in the rear, while parked (airbags weren't popped) The entire rear of the car was punched into the interior, to the point that the rear bumper support was LITERALLY touching the dashboard. The rear subframe and trunk pan had split down the middle, so that the rear tires were both bent up and around to touch the doors. The entire drivers side quarter had folded out, tearing away from the rocker panel and roof. The c-pillars had SHEARED, so that the rear of the roof was just hanging over the empty space where the trunk and rear seat had been. I've seen a LOT of damage to cars over the years, whatever hit this one HAD to have been doing at least 120, there'* just no other way that much damage could have been done.

What surprised me was that the front sheetmetal was still good. The hood even released and locked.

Brian, I'm with you. Usually they don't hit the lot like this. I think the only reason this one did is that the drivetrain is 100% intact. The motor was untouched. There are a few minor pieces inside that are ok.

I may go back today for another look, and see if that stoopid C pillar trim is actually there. I'll take a better camera if I go back.

I DID in fact overlook that C pillar trim I needed for the SLE due to the destruction I found.

How much?

At first I was "$20 TAX " But then I noticed it was just a miss-placed "Total"
Nice score!

Is that a typo? I don't get how it'* odd if it'* a SE, most SE were column shift.

Just asking.

Funny thing is that missing tail has a virgin mate on a black SSE about 50 feet away.

If anyone hasn't figured out the score above, I'm converting to the factory SSEi bass amp, gain control, dual voice coil 6x9'* and rear tweeters in the SLEeper. Since both cars have the same JVC DVD HU, I want them both to sound the same. SLE needs a little more bass.
