Interest in sheet metal?

I'm planning on completely stripping my 90 SC parts car to the bone starting sometime next week, and the body is going to be cut into chunks with a sawzall to make for easier disposal.

Is there any interest in sheet metal from this car? For example, the car has a sunroof, so I'm either going to pop out the glass and sell it, or if I get a serious buyer, I can cut off the entire roof section and sell that with the glass. I'd also be willing to try and cut up the floor if anyone needed floor pan sections, cut up the quarter panels (Although they aren't 100%), etc.


I'm not going to be able to do this for at least another week, and I won't be putting anything up for sale until it's all cut out, but I'd like to see if it's worth my time to cut out large sections in case anyone needs them vs just hacking the crap out of the car so it'll fit in trash bags.


I really wouldn't be asking too much for the metal since it's not rare by any means (Maybe with the exception of the sunroof, and even that wouldn't be too much); I'd be doing it to help out someone with a rusty bird that they want to save.


Since we're talking about large sections of the car, this would be local pickup only.


Post up if you'd be interested, and I can get back to you with pictures and an ETA on when it'll be cut out.

you might wanna tell if the rockers are rusted. the northern cars tend to be.

and i'm sure someone will snag that rear cover if it's available too.

Yeah, I'm planning on grabbing pics and whatnot later on this week, but I thought it might be a good idea to see if anyone is potentially interested in advance.


I'm 99% sure the floors are solid, but I need to check out the rockers and quarter panels more closely.

I may be interested in the rocker panels if they are in decent shape.

Finally got a chance to take some pics.


The rockers seem to be pretty solid, although the metal "tabs" that hold on the ground effects are rusted and someone bent the pinch welds.

The rocker panels would be ~$15 a side, which would pretty much cover the cost of a set of sawzall blades.

The driver's side quarter has some rot in front of and behind the rear wheel well, so I don't think anybody will be wanting it, but you never know.

The passenger side quarter is in better shape, although there is some rot behind the wheel well.

I haven't pulled the seats out yet, but the floors seem solid. I'll doublecheck on that once the seats are out.


Also, any interest in a complete moonroof? I'd cut pretty much where ever is needed to make it easy to graft to another car. I was thinking ~$100 for the complete roof with moon roof glass/motor.

Also, best offer on the doors, hood, and trunk lid:
