...dropped by Pick-A-Part in Salem yesterday in search of the ever-elusive sway bar bolts. Didn't find what I was looking for, but I scored some other cool stuff. I got such a good deal, I had to tell everybody!


SE gauge cluster clear plastic thingie...


...power mirror switch (don't have power mirrors, but I'll come up with something to do with it)...


...A/C-less HVAC panel in perfect condition...


...SE-R cluster wiring harnesses...


...four 194 bulbs, in original blue covers...


...and a lovely white grille for a "secret project"

My brother picked up two washer pumps off an old B12 wagon, a washer reservoir off the same B12 and one off an old Geo, I think, and two door pockets off an old Subaru for use on his Cooper.

I figure that based on the condition and relative rarity of the stuff I got, we picked up a grand total of $250-$300 worth of stuff. Total cost for both of us: $20. Junkyards rule.

Congrats samo! :) Superb job picking out those OEM parts. I thought about doing the SE cluster swap, but never got around to it. Let me know how it turns out for you.

OT: peep my new avatar!

Nice avatar - rallye oWnZ. It's actually going to be an SE-R cluster swap, since I want a higher redline and higher max speed. Or at least I want to think my car can go 150... sort of interior rice, but I like it :) . The SE cluster and wiring harness luckily fit perfectly and all the wires are correct, which is going to make the swap (other than the speedo calibration issue and the tach) a breeze. And my old clear plastic thingie was all crapped up, so a new one is always nice.

I still don't have my sway bar bolts though :( . Oh well, next time!

There's quite a few Hondas at this one, but most are totally gutted by now. There's only one B14 though, which I though was kinda weird considering how many earlier models they have.

I need to leave Louisiana, in Baton Rouge they have no decent junkyards except for like one and the guy who runs it is a real douche bag. I need to get some parts bad.

since you went off topic....

sega died due to the fact that sony hit them hard in 1995... the failed with saturn and then rushed dreamcast......another thing that killed sega was file sharing....every dreamcast and saturn game known to date can be downloaded and play with out the use of any type of mod chip.......

From what I hear they will be back in the game within 3 years look out for it...:D



btw is pick-a-part the name of the place?
