hows the frame on the car?  I know a guy in Minnesota that has a great car and bad frame.

The rocker panels are in bad shape, and there would probably need to be some reinforcement of the front attachment for the leaf springs.  Front end looks very solid.

I need the grille, end caps, seats... 

I didn't pick up the grille, but here are a couple close up pictures.  Its pretty solid other than a couple imperfections, I think it could be made to look pretty good.  One of the top mounting tabs is broken but could also be repaired.





Someone already claim the fuel sender? I might be interested if condition is good.

I need to determine if the sending unit is functional before selling it.  Thanks.

Would love to but my weekends are booked up for the next month. How much are they asking for the 5 speed.

I think their price list says its a little over $100 for the tranny, plus $30 core charge, plus environmental fee and sales tax.  You'd probably be looking at $150 or so total.  They cycle through the cars at this yard pretty quickly so it will probably be gone in 4-6 weeks.

My sx/4 had a rear wiper but someone replaced the glass with a non rear wiper glass and there is no wiper on it at all now, only the rear washer thing on top. I would buy the entire rear hatch if I had too, Mine has rear defrost. I really want to put the car back to original and get the rear wiper back on it. So if the rear hatch with the glass and wiper and all is still for sale I'd like to buy it and have it shipped. If not please keep your eye out for another for me.

Unfortunately this one is long gone.  The junkyards around here generally don't keep cars more than about 4-6 weeks.  I'll let you know if another SX/4 shows up!
