I've been trying to find an '06 or up Vert for a while now. Broke off a trim piece that runs over the back above the trunk, seals down the back of the vert top. Four screws. It was catching on my vert top and one day when raising it,... kablam, the damned thing busted off and no fixing it. So, hunt and peck but so far no joy. If you happen to see one, please let me know!

I really take my time when im at a salvage yard too. All those cars and to believe they were all once loved and taken care of, then by some misfortunate accident or change of hands it ended up in the state it site in at a salvage yard.

I wish we had more/better yards here. I miss my fav yard in Georgia. The upullit down here is a pain. Gotta pay just to get in and then they don't have squat in there. When you ask them if they had x car they tell you you gotta pay and go in to see.

At the yard I go to we have retards who just rip everything apart.

They strip out the radios if they think they can make a buck on E-bay.

On the other hand most of the derilicts which come in are pretty beat, also they get crushed within the year, guy crushes 3500 cars a year.

I am lucky he sells me most stuff real cheap or doesnt charge anything for interior trim and crap like that.

I only have one yard near by with PT's and they typically have 06+ models last I checked they had about 5 cars all front end damage.
