What bits could i strip from an XF that would be useful in an XR?

If i get this XR i looked at its guts are not in pristine condition, and i will be getting rid of my XF. Now if i dont roadworthy it up and sell it ill be stripping the crap out of it for anything that may be of use to me in the future.

Ill be taking out the new battery i put in not long ago, and now that ive found out they should fit ill take out the seats and maybe swap them with the XR's. Ill also take all those little white plastic door-opening mechanism hinges that always break and are becoming more scarce all the time

But what else can everyone think of that i should keep out of it...just reel off heaps of crap so i can make a list. Thanks

Most of the frontend fits to my knowledge. Really depends on what type of XR your talking about? 60's model XR or XR 6/8?

If it's a 60's XR? even the seats will most likely fit.

Grab the front suspension and steering for sure. The upper wishbones have better bushes in em and wont squeak like the ones u have now. Also you get better discs (vented) and alloy calipers too. Steering box wont fit tho. If you use the front suspension lower control arms, be carefull, the camber bolts are different diameters ( XF larger than XR).
