You're like Kreskin, man! I left those out of the picture 'cause they're MINE! There are some rear seat mini carpets, and bashed up SVT 5 spokes, though.

That was my firm hope!
This way if you just need a regular little item, you can appeal to your local or national brethren who may already be looking for something themselves!

Need a rim for yourself; might as well check here and see if you can keep your eyes peeled for simple items that someone else can't find. If Murphy's Law has ever reared up and bit anyone else, you always find that window switch, or odd trim piece three trips AFTER you gave up and overpaid somewhere else.

We're an online community, and I don't mind getting a little muddy to help my community!

That 'guy' may already have a part-out post up here or another Ford forum; you never know! Your time is worth a few bucks anyways, plus; the prices we see here are still lower than tracking down a new replacement... especially when an old one can be adequately cleaned and acquired.

I'm fairly certain the car was scrapped with extreme prejudice, though...
And in the two or three trips I took to grab stuff off of it, the good equipment I'd seen firmly attached in it's proper location, were either strewn about in the mud puddles and weeds surrounding the car, broken off where they were by ham-fisted attempts at removal, or just smashed and abused for no other reason that I could guess other than sadism... The last time I saw the thing the interior had been cut and thrown, switches I'd carefully removed had been stepped into the dirt just outside the car, and it looked like someone just picked on THAT car to workout their aggression on: and there were no less than ten regular hatches no one would've been upset to find bashed up!

The instinct to horde the find for yourself is understandable, to keep all the goodies for yourself; but the idea for a 'picker' thread is not only for pieces off rare cars, but for more pedestrian items too.

Example = if you have a later model, you didn't necessarily get the little carpets for the rear passengers: it's cheaper to find 'em yourself or ask a local member to keep an eye peeled, go pick-up from them, and throw a few bucks at them for the trouble.
