im hoping i cna start getting stuff. if i can get the bulkhead that would be a big dent in the parts. all ide need then is hte bumper support, 2 fenders, hood, and bumper foam and cover. and the fenders and hood are 150 at a salvage in good shape. so im not THAT bad off. its not more money than i can come up with.

i dont think ill be out of it much longer tho

as soon as i got teh money im guna buy the bulkhead.

See the problem i had when i was his age is that without a car it was hard to get a job, really hard but if you can get one more power too you.
Your plan sounds good just stick to it and you'll be up and running in no time.

whao whoa whoa.....where are you located at?

you shouldnt be spending 150 on fenders and hood.... Around here you can get that for like $10-15 a fender and $25-30 a hood.

It doesnt even look like you need fenders from what i can see. Sure the drivers side has a dent in it but if you just want it back on the road then dont worry about it...

You basically need a bumper support, the foam, the actual bumper(cover), rad support & a hood.

salvage yard. the pass fender is fucked up, and if im guna replace one. im guna replace both. i need thebulkhead cuz if u look closely its actually broken not just bent. and the crossmemebr is beyond fixing.

plus im being picky cuz im not guna fix it mediocre. im fixing it as good as possible or im not guna fix it at all

I live in Oklahoma.

the fenders an dhood are in perfect condition and no rust either.

its just a simple Harry's-U-Pull It

theres a few around in PA....i think one in philly, near my old town in pennsburg, and one up here in Hazelton, PA.

the one here in hazelton is supposed to be the largest they have though ....its like 4 or 5 football fields long...and like 2 wide.

im busy for hours just looking at all the cars i need parts off of...then plotting them out on the map, and wheeling the cart around....its rediculous.



Oh and something certain to piss you off....

Everyday they're open they have specials...

some are just better than others....

-any set of wheels $75 w/ or w/o tires.
-any two seats $50

-MOTOR MONDAYS....ANY motor $100

They have tons of other days too for other misc. parts.




Me and my buds get up real early on the motor days and ge there looking for the tuner wrecks that may happen to come in with swaps...like 5 of us running around amongst all the mexicans trying to loot anything valuable.

we've picked up :

2 - V6 Probe GT motor
an H22 with the distributor and valve cover missing
b20 crv motor
3 - 1g 4g63t
hyundia excel motor for our friends sis's car.

& a bunch more....
