81 Spirit - Denver
« on: April 22, 2017, 04:28:08 PM »
81 Spirit Hatchback (SX/4 style) just made it to the LKQ yard in Aurora CO.  Not too much special about this one, looks like it had a hard life from looking at the interior and the guys at the junkyard didn't do it any favors either.  I grabbed the sending unit, the hood release, and one of the turn signal housings, the other one had a hole in it.  Not much else worth picking off this one, maybe the door handles, door panels, bumper ends.

Did you grab the grill too? I see it on the roof. Tailights and Rear Side Market lights might be worth taking. Did it have an AM/FM Cassette Radio?

Actually I just remembered I'm in need of Interior Windshield trim across the front (should be two pieces). What kind of condition were those in? Found someone on the facebook page that had them, but he wanted 70 plus shipping which seemed high to me. I can wait till I get out to the junkyard again at those prices.

All the tabs were busted off the grill.  The rear marker lights were both broken.  I already have a set of the taillights at home so I figured I didn't need another set.  It had an aftermarket radio and an EQ box in the upper cubby . 

Can't remember if the interior windshield trim was there.  I may have a couple of those here at the house also. $69 plus shipping......just kidding  ;D
