Scrap metal is about all that'* left of the donor car. I have parts all over the place and finding a difficult time to find places for some of the larger ones. Fortunately, my buddy has a lot to store cars for his towing company but I hate to wear out my welcome.

Anyways, stage one is just about done. Here'* some pics of the aftermath:

hey, i need the fuel door. one of the springs is busted on mine and it doesn't close all the way by itself. and your car is the same color as mine. Dealer says I need the whole door and paint, but yours would be alot easier

and the passenger mirror, is your heated?

The mirrors were destroyed before I got the car. As far as I could tell, the fuel door is riveted on. I can potentially drill them out but I'd like to know is that is the correct method. Any idea?

The fuel door will be screwed on from my experience. Just a matter of reading up on how they are attached. And hmmm need a ps mirror...heated and tinted? Just the glass?

Guys...Randman completely carnaged the 97...There'* nothing left but a little scrap metal.

It looks like you're right Bill. 'Dems not rivets, de'* screws. More specifically, the door removes by removing two nuts accessed from behind the filler pocket.

What'* it worth to ya, sonoma? I need money for food and beer for my helpers.

How about a case of your favorite beer plus shipping. How are the rims, I have one that is scuffed, although shipping would be a killer.

Two are OK and the other two are pretty banged up. I have a buddy that repairs aluminum alloy wheels. I'm going have him evaluate the two to see if they are even repairable. If they are, then I'll be keeping the full set. If not then I'll be selling them individually.

How about $20 shipped? It'* easier to send a money order than it is a case of beer.
