Rockauto has most splash guards in stock for a reasonable price, but I see what your saying. There are a lot of pieces.

I think I'm going to let the car go. New York has a stupid f'ing law requiring me to put brand new airbags in the car. And the hoops that I would have to jump through to bring it back from salvage seem to be too much. The car wouldn't be worth much with a salvaged title, and I'm sure I would have over $2000 trying to get it back on the road. Just isn't worth the risk/hassle. What a shame. I was planning to go FE5 control arms, and griffin intercooler and drop to a 2.7" pulley.

Wow, I thought it was higher then that! That's for all model years combined?

Sucks to hear you can't buy back/repair. If you had any parts be sure to take them off and recoup some of the loss.

This is a large part of the reason why I keep my car tucked away in the garage. These cars are too few and far between and my Father took very good care of it when he owned it.

1997 Range Rover 4.6 HSE (132K) Typical British project
2004 Saturn Ion Redline (9600 mi)
2015 Subaru Impreza 2.0i
2015 Chevy Colorado Z71 Trail Boss 4x4 crew cab in Rally Yellow

Nope, he's giving up the battle of life. Soon we'll have to make our own parts
