At the wreckers today i found a real gem - EL2 XR8, manual. Been written off, however most of it was still salvageable - including the full interior.
The seats are DAMN comfy and would go very nicely in my EF, however im at odds with the wreckers as to how much they're worth.
They said they paid $3,200 for the wreck - thats including the box and engine and interior.
I asked them how much they wanted for the front seats and back one (no doortrims as one is stuffed and it'd be hell to find another one), and offered a trade of my full EF Futura interior (seats + trims). My interior is in perfect nick, the EL's one isnt too bad but it'll need a clean (as all wrecked interiors do).
They said they'd let me have it if i gave them my interior + $700. Now is it just me or is that ridiculously expensive?!
I'm willing to give them my interior plus $2-300 absolute maximum. Is that fair?
Also, if anyone wants an EL2 XR8 engine complete with around 100,000 on it + 5spd gearbox, lemme know..................
I paid $300 for Front and Back seats, Door trims and carpet from an EF XR8. This was through a mate tho. From a wrecker the seats allone shouldnt cost more than $300 with no trade in. If one trim is ruined the door trims arent worth squat. Although as the XR's had the same door trims as the futuras grab the fabric arround the door handels to swap onto yours.
Also remove the number 2 from your topic
Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.
No offence, but I will be a monkey's arse if you end up getting that 5.0L and cramming it in the ED mad_ea...
Anyway, back on topic I think that it is ridiculously expensive!!! I wouldn't be paying more than $450 for the front and back seats alone. If they don't take your deal, just hold off and be patient even though it might be hard...
