    Did you know you can just replace the door from a donor assembly ?

    Some of those Ebay prices are stupid expensive. I think allot of that is from the demo derby people. They figure their stuff is gold and people will pay gold prices for it. That is why it sits on Ebay for months. They won't budge on the price either. Sorry, I won't play that game. I boycott those people.
    After awhile, they will just throw the stuff away.

    I got lucky a few weeks ago and pulled a near perfect dash pad out of an ‘88 Country Squire at the junkyard for $25; just had a small crack in the passenger speaker grille. I might find a way to mend it since my current pad has a split.

    I really don’t know who they think are looking for these parts at prices like that. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to get stuff locally, through people I’ve met, and the kind folks here. There’s a distinct difference between selling stuff between enthusiasts and trying to turn mad profit.
    Regarding the crack in the speaker. I fixed a couple of cracked speaker grilles by doing the following: Carefully glue a FIRM thin and close woven piece of plastic mesh that is bigger than than the speaker hole to the UNDERSIDE of the dash at the speaker area. You might find this at a hobby store like Hobby Lobby or AC Moore. Use a THIN coat of heavy duty spray adhesive at the grille, a thicker or second coat at the area around the hole. Gently press the speaker grille down to the mesh. Set something with slight pressure on both sides of the dash sandwiching the dash to dry overnight. Hopefully the next day the dash will look decent. grille will be firm. At least you can say you gave it a good effort. If you had good results with the one side, do the other side if you dare.
    I have also seen a tastefully done dash that had small aftermarket speaker grille covers put over the holes. Not factory but it looked good. They even were painted the same color as the dash.

    I know. I've actually already done that before. I replaced all three doors since I had some junkyard pieces with good doors, but that looked worse than the complete assemblies I had.

    I think one of my kids broke the tab on the rear driver's door.

    Do you want me to look at what used ones I have in stock ? CV/MGM with just the silver top not the wood look ? I have TCs too.

    Someone here is looking for one of these. Can't remember who. Reasonable in price. They want more for trashy used.

    Actually, I just realized that I already bought a used passenger side assembly from someone on here. I just procrastinated on doing anything with it and forgot I had it. I appreciate it, though!

    Small gripe....maybe I am asking too much but I cannot stand when a item is placed on cement like that. It leads me to believe the seller will also package it without care. Only tires belong on the cement.

    It's a worldwide standard now. In Poland, we have ppl who are eager to buy ~10-30 000 USD for crappy cars from the communist era. And they are not even nice, well-built, they were obsolete the moment they were introduced on the market... but still.
    Recently I found an offer for a Volvo 760, broken head gasket (if not something worse), unknown undercarriage condition, and a lot of phrases like :it will only get more expensive", "a great investment", "a superb classic car than can bring you a lot of money". Yeah sure.

    The asking price is high but it’s a nice ride. Someone got spray bomb crazy on the underside.

    Looks like it sold for $11.6k back in September, 2020. https://www.classic.com/veh/1985-for...fabp4-4o3VGL4/
    My thought was that the car could easily bring $10k-$12k (from big spenders, not from me), then I found that link indicating that is exactly what it went for not even 4 months ago. I think they know they have to stretch to get something more than they paid, hence the movie reference even though it's not the right color or year.
