Default junkyard score of the day

hey guys and gals, i have got a new thread idea. lets post up our local junkyard scores of the day.

i got an alert from the LKQ yesterday. a white 93 D21 with a blue interior was added to the yard yesterday morning. smashed in the front and rear. looked good from the pics. i drove around all day just knowing i was gonna get there today to a destroyed truck.

WRONG.

this thing didnt have a mark on the interior, other than the dome light cover being missing and the stereo gone, and one sharpie mark on the passenger door panel.

i went ape shit. i scored a 95% mint blue dash pad for 25 bucks. it has one small crack that i can repair. i also got both of the mint XE style door panels. i have all but given up on finding decent SE panels for now, but i will still keep looking.

i also snagged the AC control panel trim and the AC switch, and the defrost vents. we also kept every screw and bolt from pulling the dash. also got a 4 banger gear shift knob.

got that shit out the door for 60 bucks....got the ac switch and gear shift for free seeing how it fit in my jacket pocket lol

there was also a mint glove box and pretty decent steering wheel and a beautiful single cab headliner. the bench seat looked new. also got OEM blue Nissan floormats.

like i said, i have been waiting and waiting and it finally went in my favor today.

Now we have to keep Lund visors on our look for lists, since they are almost impossible to find.

gotta clean the mats. im gonna get a pic of the daskpad tomorrow. it got dark and i had to put my stuff up............i had to do the driver valve cover on the lexus and i was chasing a stupid code 15 on that lexus too. no ignition signal returned to the ECM so it wasnt firing. it also had a broken lock on the coil wire too and a damn broken primary coil connecting wire harness.

Wow! Congrats. I WISH I could find some tan door panels that look that nice. Glad it paid off for you.

Not related to the mats but is that the infamous lexus in the background? Those were so far ahead of their time when new.

Well, anything that has been in AZ for a while will look like what I already have.

LKQ does not have any wrecking yards here that I know of, but other yards offer the notification benefit. I may try and grab an engine to build.

I feel you on that one. I grew up in NM and the sun does a number on cars down there. I have two cars that came from there - both have faded clear coat and interior plastics and one is on its 3rd windshield. But they don't rust which makes the SW a great place to find a cheap beater.

You can have a rust free car that looks good on the outside, then you open the door and .

When certain vinyl parts are discontinued it gets to be a problem for those of us who like to keep vehicles a long time.

So jealous of those who have access to good vinyl like cadillacdude75.
