    If I post this in the Forsale section nobody will respond. I talked to a guy tonight on another forum I used to be on (Eteinne's from there too). He's interested in my doors complete, with mirrors, 2 back side windows, sunroof and trunk window I guess...but says it's easier to just take the trunk off.

    The car had over $2000 of body work (that I got a deal on) a year and a half ago with new paint. The trunk's been modded as most of you know. It's in great shape.

    So, my question, what are fair prices for these parts? We're both in Montreal, so shipping shouldn't be an issue.

    Thanks,

    Hey says he wants to buy a parts car cause that's cheaper, so he obviously doesn't want to spend much.

    Now, I could sell them and not really have a chance of selling the rolling chassis to anybody or I could not sell them (chances of getting rid of them again aren't good) and sell the car when engine, tranny and everything is gone.

    You're never gonna come close to recouping what you put in. If you aren't selling the car as a unit, take what you can get.

    FYI - when I bought both doors, hood, hatch, drill, front fenders from the junkyard, it cost me $300. The hatch is by far the most valuable piece. I'm sure yours are in better shape than what I bought, but there's a limit on what people will pay for body parts, and it's pretty low.

    See! $300 is good. So say $700.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinkin' high. I thought around 100-125/door. With mirror and ventvisors. He only wants the latch and glass from the sunroof...not much for that, 25-50? Trunk glass, I have no idea how that comes out. Back windows like 25/each or something. I want to get at least what a junkyard would charge, mine's definitely in much better condition.
