But i upgraded my car like with M-tech2 bumpers side skirts everything all around even VMR rims on them 18"staggered..my question is if i was to part out my car will the scrappers still pay me the same ammount offered? or does the car have to be with all its stock parts?

I know me parting out the car will get me money.


What I would do is pull the following items off, and try to get $200 "Scrap" metal cost back form teh wrecker.

- Bumpers (Front and Back)
- Side Skits
- Rims
- Head Lights, Rear Tail Lights
- Deck

- Pull the Starter, Alternator, AC Compressor (they will never know until later... if they even care).

Since the transmission is dead, it's not driveable anyway.

You technically only need two rear wheels. Use your spare and get another junk wheel....

I've helped buddies strip their cars...

Axxe - im very tight on cash plus like i mentioned earlier its VERY rusty underneath the car like the spot to jack the car has a rusted hole so ya lol. otherwise i would do what u suggested.

MrRwd - Thats what i was looking forward to do. but good thing you brought up the starter, alternator n etc didnt think of it for a sec lol. Thanks! well umm ya be following up DIY or youtube videos on how to remove the parts from around the engine. the rest is very easy to take out.
