So I'm planning on going Lord of War on my 88 parts car. For those unfamilar with the reference, please review the following videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4ZSR0pfg5Y
With that out of the way, the question becomes what should I save and what should I trash? The parts car is an 88 coupe, little to no options. The main car is an 87 GT with all options but rear defrost. I already plan to save the cradle to build an engine swap on. I'm also going to use the interior to build something custom with, and the hood because it's in nice enough shape to try to build some sort of extractor hood with. I know there are a few miscellaneous parts that are worth saving as spares such as the headlight motors and stuff like that.
The body is a big question. Aside from the hood I don't have much use for the rest of the body. The paint is SHOT. On top of that, most of the panels have some sort of problem with them, such as the keyhole on the decklid being buggered up. Really the only panels that I would consider salvageable are the roof, notchback, driver's door, driver's fender, and the two rear quarter panels. Both bumpers have BAD sag, the passenger's door has a chunk missing, etc. Even the "good" body panels will take work to make nice. Is it worth it for me to keep them and try to sell them, or should I trash them?
As for other parts-- what on this car would have potential value? It's got a duke with something wrong with it (not sure what, don't care enough to investigate), automatic trans, and not a whole lot else. Over the next few weekends I want to sort this car out. I want to pull of ANYTHING of value and trash the rest. I need this car out of my yard.
