Should I buy a written off NF or NL Fairlane so I can use the parts I need for my car and sell the rest of the parts on ebay or Fordmods and make some of the money back?

I may not be able to do it due to the agreement in my rental lease - what are your thoughts?

what parts are you in need of? might be quicker and easier to hit the wreckers. considering you have a fairlane would of thought you'd have it all already unless yours is f**k or something.

Little things like for example - my brother put a crystal cabinet on the back seat and one of the legs broke and when he turned the corner, the broken leg stabbed a hole in the leather of the door trim.

Also the top corner put a puncture mark in the side trim of the rear seat.

There is drill holes in my woodgrain trim around the shifter from an ex mobile phone kit.

Minor cosmetic issues include stone chips in the lamps that light up when you turn a corner and cancel after a few seconds.

The base of my driver's seat is sinking a little and the seat squeaks.

yeah i reckon you should buy a wreck and get the parts you want off it. Sell the rest on fordmods or ebay. You'll double your money easily!! I'd be interested in some s**t myself like the carpet and kick panels so i got dibs on them! :lol:
