Default Making a trip to the Yard, anyone need parts?

Santanadude, plus a few others, have me jazzed now about visiting a couple of local Pick-A-Part junkyards. I'm going to be gearing up to pull parts and am working with the yards now to identify what model PT's, if any, they have so that I can maybe get together a shopping list prior to going.

If you're interested, post a part you are needing and I'll see if I can pull it. Will obviously have to price these with the yard first, plus shipping, so that you get what you want at a fair cost.

Once I get a list of parts, I'll work to make sure I can get them in good shape and you can work with me and the yard to know the price. Then I'll settle with you on a fair value for my labor to pull the part and ship it. Shipping separate, coming from 28117. I'll post here when I'm ready to start hitting the yards, there are three very large one's within a half hour of me.

I've just noticed this. You and me don't live that far away from each other. I live by Gastonia.

Yes, haven't we met at any events? I've been around for years. Live up on Lake Norman, come to Gastonia once in a while to join with their Rock and Gem club. Do some digging around there too. Should get together and do a tool time some time when the weather is a bit "dryer"...lol

Let us know when you come back south. I'm trying to plan on going to the Cruizin Clarion this year, not too far from you. Then also have a Rock event in Newton, NJ this year I'm going to, gotta see who's going to be nearby to get with them too.

Going to be hitting yards around Statesville and Charlotte.

Oooo nice.

My '03's back-up light/lens is cracked on my passenger side! Think blue monster would like a replacement.
