From what I've heard you need go on the days with the girl that has tattoos. She supposedly gives you the best pricing and doesn't screw you over like the other employees do. Heard she works weekends and the ones you want to avoid have saturday off.

well then it may just be me and my excitement, i'm loving the prices because usually when i go to other yards they always charge me a lot, especially for small parts. this one yard wanted 250 for a hood and bumper and was like nahhh.. >.>

Ok cool, I may take a trip over there the week of the 12th. I need to get some door lock actuators for the GT if they still have the mustangs.

You have to go after certain parts. If the parts are NORMALLY high price parts, you can get them at a steal there. However, I've noticed that sensors and electronics are SERIOUSLY high priced. Also turbo and supercharger stuff is rediculous. Also, they charge you for every bracket as well, and those are usually around 7-15 bucks.

I didn't realize until I checked the website, but I used the one in Savannah GA on a routine basis when I was stationed at FT. Gordon for training. GREAT prices.

Yeah, the lead I got from my build thread wanted 300$ for a hood and bumper.

I called them up and the conversation went some thing like :

"I heard you guys have a white eclipse or talon 90-94 year range, how much would you need to get for the hood and driver's door."

Them "About 300$ for all of it"

"Okay I will see if I can get a trailer and we will come get the car latter today"

Them "No no thats just for the parts"

" You can't be serious, I've gotten entire rollers for less, and I know you guys aren't paying what I would to private parties"

Them Click, dial tone
