I have some parts i want to offload and i cant be bothered with ebay.

Somehow ive managed to buy a VE SS spoiler from ebay for $30. It was listed as a VY/VZ spoiler. Bargain of the century, but its not going to work for me.

Ive also got a set of VYII exec headlights, too good to throw away.

I'd imagine they might, though probably not at a price that would be worth selling them at. You'd probably be best off selling the parts privately.

eBay them yourself!

Would have thought a VE spoiler would be worth a fair bit more than $30?

It needs some paint.
ive put it on ebay, pickup only, if no one buys it ill see if the smash repairers down the road want it.

VZ GTO. VS LS1.
Some wreckers do, but usually only if they are something well sought after and they know they can move the parts on fairly easily but even then they will probably offer you squat for them. Worth a try though.

Ive sold parts to wreckers, well rather exchanged them for some of their parts that I wanted. It was something like five of my parts for one of theirs,LOL. It was close to extortion rates, but I couldnt be bothered trying to sell the parts myself. Cant remember what the parts all were, but I think all I got was a couple of rocker switches for a vh commodore that they wanted $15 each for and I gave them close to a boot fill of gear!

Do also appreciate that wreckers buy wrecks for a couple of hundred dollars or less and are hardly going to give good money for parts unless they are very rare. Do remember the wreckers motto, goes something like: "the part's worth nothing unless you need one and we have one"!

generally they dont as they cant be sure you havent stolen the parts.
they will take it as scrap metal though - for free.

wreckers wont be interested if they dont know you because they will think the parts are stolen.they will prolly still buy them but for fark all.
try a crash repairer,a smaller one.
