Damnit. If only I had the cash now, I'm sure I will need a lot of stuff in a year when I start my LSx swap.

**** ebay. You can probably sell the majority of that **** on LS1tech and not pay the ebay fees. Gimme the LSX plugs/filters/coilpacks/wiring/ECUs etc. LS6/7 clutch kits?

you can throw the parts #s in the gmpartsdirect.com website to see what misc GM/Declo stuff you have. Rockauto has a good x-reference for Delco parts too.

Hey thanks guys.

I'm going to start looking around at what I'm working with today. I doubt I'm going to try and list anything until next week, I think, so I'll give you guys a heads up if I run into any V8 swap parts.

Today I need to sit down with the man and explain the ebay fees, paypal fees, etc etc. That's always fun to explain to people. "Well, you see, if it sells for $100, you don't actually get $100".

I know this is a long shot, but if there are parts for a Chevy Bellair -53 or a Caddy coupe de Ville -73, I will be interested. I'll PM you my email, juuuuuust in case.

Congrats and good luck!

I'll keep an eye out for you guys on the stuff you requested.

So far today I have 50 items jotted down with pictures ready to list! Not too bad for a couple hours into it, but that's not even a dent in the pile. Which is a good thing. lol

I did however come across this snail today!



Tomorrow I will take a minute to measure and weigh this beast.

I talked with the owner today about how this all works, regarding listing the stuff, shipping, payment, etc. He agreed to everything and I'm good to go. So for the next couple months I'll be at this place everyday trying to move these parts.

Today was a lot of fun! Opening all the boxes and seeing the amount of big ticket items is a little crazy. Hopefully I can get him close to cost on this stuff.

A picture with all those black plastic tool cases open would be sweet...or is it all GM specific diagnostic equipment.

talked to the wife's father, the only thing he could think of off the top of his head is a radiator for his 2000 blazer.

Some of it's GM specific, but not all of it. I'll see if I can get the non-GM stuff together tomorrow and take some pictures for you.

I don't remember seeing any radiators, but I'll take a look around. Should be one of the easier items to spot due to its size. Thanks for looking out!

If you have any of the following for a 1993 Chevy Suburban K1500 4x4, let me know. I am also local in CT.

-Exhaust
-Fuel Pump
-Tires (used is OK as long as at least 70% tread left)

I am also in the market for a new air compressor if you have anything available.


Thanks

So I just spent my morning going through more stuff, mainly computer equipment and tools.

He's got tags on the stuff saying $200, $500, etc. I come home and check on ebay what the same stuff is selling for and its almost a joke.

I literally just wasted my entire morning working on stuff I thought was roughly worth a couple thousand, only to find out its worth a couple hundred.

Not sure if the GM dealer is going to work out. I thought he was trying to clear his inventory, not trying to get rich.

Today has not been a good start to the day.....
