Glad you were able to get so many useful parts off that wagon. It's moments like this that make it all worthwhile for me to post these threads announcing the availability of parts and/or entire vehicles.

Did you grab those parts in just the last few days, or some time ago? Just curious, because up here in NorCal, it seems that many wrecking yards don't keep newly added vehicles around for more than a month before sending them to the crusher.

Hi, I went up there about April 29th, a few days after u posted. I had my 85 4wd parked and somebody rolled a dumpster next to it. No problem right? Well the dumpster pickup driver picked up the dumpster and it damn slid off the forks in mid-air and landed on the back tailgate. Broke it all up, crushed it. 🤮 I got sick. At least I got a nee back hatch but its white and my car is yellow. Now to find a rear window, theres one on ebay for $165 but i think i can find a cheaper one eventually.
