    Use this thread to show off all of the great parts (and cars) you've found at the junkyard!

    To get things started, I will show you today's find. I got nearly $1k worth of parts for only $135! All they need is a wash and they're good to go.

    The best thing I've bought so far was an OEM front bumper. :)

    Once got a pristine hatch weather seal for a 1G for $12. I almost felt bad about all the other bolts and interior trim clips I had stuffed in my pockets.

    This year I scored a 2g awd manual trans, transfer case, and rear for $300. I also got a full tan and black leather interior for $200.

    Picked this up last week. I was excited to find out I know/knew the previous owner but nobody from ColumbusDSM has contact still. Bought from picknpull. Literally looks like nobody has ever sat in the passenger or rear seats. Zero rust. All the trunk junk including cargo net and privacy cover. Unreal for what I paid. Torn on putting a fmic on because I don’t want to get rid of the fogs.

    I live 5 minutes away from 2 pick and pull yards. A list of notable stuff I’ve gotten dirt cheap:

    Walbro 255
    ARP headstuds
    Entire black leather interior/dash
    Few eprom ecu 1g/2g / 2 black box ecu
    Full 2gb talon bumper set side strakes
    2ga talon twisty skirts and caps
    99 silver cluster for automatic (different from a manual)


    These came from a locals car who gave up because he never got it running right, I literally stopped by the yard daily to make sure I got to it first ROFL :

    Ipt refreshed valve body with trans lab shift kit
    Ipt end clutch kit/basket
    1g rebuilt TB
    Prothane motor mounts
    (All of the stuff right above is currently in my gsx)

    I will say the last few years it’s been pretty dry for DSM stuff lately. Especially anything 4g63 related. Anything that hits the yard looks like a skeleton in just a few days. OP, nice find suspension stuff is always picked first at our yards.

    I took them outside and washed them up real nice, they almost look new. I searched online for the part numbers and they cost $500. Those struts are Tokico brand, and they cost like $100 each. For some reason I only hvae 3 of them, so I'll have to order the 3rd before installing. It's a Megan Racing shifter, probably the $75 one from Ebay. And then a little smoothe bezel to top it all off.

    I'll update my build thread once I get everything cleaned up and installed if you guys want to see it. :)

    Yea, that's true. I went to this car 2 days after it arrived and somebody already pissed all over the interior. I remember last year I went to look at a Spyder a week after it arrived and the engine bay was completely empty LOL.

    As I was in the checkout line, the employee asked where I got them from, and when I told him I got them from the Barcelona Pearl Eclipse he basically kicked himself. He said he was keeping his eye on it, and of course I said too bad LOL.

    It's not a junkyard find, but I was searching on eBay about two weeks ago, and I happened to find brand new oem 2gb side skirts (the rocker pieces) and drivers side fender cap. Yes the were BRAND NEW, so I had to snag them up. And I do believe they still have a left and a right for sale, just search up these part #'s and you should see them MR248254, MR248253. The seller I bought from was partsbrokersllc.

    I don't think so, the ones I found were 2gb eclipse side skirts.
