    I'm looking at buying a salvage title 2007 black natural Solstice with GXP front end to buy and part out. It has been rebuilt and has no visible body damage.
    It is black with 60,000 miles.
    He is down to $3,500 and I'll try to get him down to 2,500 to 3,000

    I understand you have parted out Sols.

    Any advice on parting out?

    How much do you think I might make in parting out the whole car and crushing the remains?

    Part two...maybe this is NOT a PM but a "visitor message" whatever that means...
    As no good mod goes unpunished my installing the DDM shift adapter, boot and expensive wood Pontiac shift knob cause all kinds of NVH problems with shifting. I went back to the stock shifter and all went away. It appears the stock shifter is designed to dampen out the problems.

    I want to experiment with modifying the stock shifter to accept a conventional knob and do not want to destroy the one in the car. If you have an intact Solstice manual shifter I'm interested in buying one depending upon price. The boot does not have to be nice, or the knob, but the shaft must be intact and not buggered up. I will remove the boot and attempt to remove the knob without harming the shaft and its internal damping mechanism.

    If you have or run across such, please let me know. This is not a big rush and my idea may not work.

    Since I am NOW getting a message that communications is limited to 1000 characters (what BS!) I will send this is two parts. I appreciate your patience and a reply.

    Wanted to let you know the horn bracket worked perfectly. As far as I can hear, adding the second horn did nothing for the volume or tone of horn sound. Pretty anemic at best. I'm looking at my Fleetwood Brougham horn set of four A, C, D and F considering if that will work for two of them if there is room, hmmm...

    (continued in part two)

    Thanks and have a good weekend.

    The center console on the coupe is totally different then the one on the convertible. I doubt they made a cup holder in the coupe . Your best bet may be to buy the one DDM makes for the console in front of the shifter that has the cup holder. If I get a good side cup holder from the 2 cars I am parting out I will take $75 plus shipping for it.

    Thanks for the 09 Coupe. I love driving it. Now can I replace the center console so I can have the slide out cup holders? Also replace the broken passenger pop out cup holder.

    I know it's an awkward part to ship but could you provide a shipping cost to 55605 MN that would include a tracking #. Also, do you use PayPal?

    I need information. Found a new"Custom WERKSracing LE5 Kappa Stage 2 RTR Turbo kit in stock ready to ship! " I wonder it is was compatible with the 2.4 L in the 2009 coupe. There has may 3 digit listed for the 2,4 NA.

    Thanks for the pics; they look nice. That's probably more than I can spend right now.
