Failed on rusty sills and underneath rot in places
« on: 01 June 2019, 18:41:16 »

My estate is worse than i first thought CD v6 , i am probably calling it a day with this car as my elite saloon passed no problem.
What is best to do with the estate MOT runs out June 21st although its now failed , what is scrap value .its driveable.
I will salvage some bits for elite along with recent purchases.

IIRC Terry got about 180 scrap off an internet scrap car buyer collected
depends what you take off, the price could drop
or,take whatever you like off, ask on OOF if anyone needs parts ,then get it dragged off by a cash for scrap car man local

as you have another omega ,plan B may work out better
but sods law dictates the one part you leave on will fail on your other omega a week AFTER the estate goes  ::)

I doubt it. It will be bought for its weight in scrap metal, as they wont keep it hanging around the yard to sell the parts, as hardly anyone will want them.
Might be interested in the front windscreen trim and hazard switch  if  in good nick.  :)

If it's a 2.5/3.0L keep the down-pipes, also take the headlight level sensors off. Unless you have the room to break it properly.

Yes leveling sensors.
Is this an Elite? If so is it leather and what colour?

Yep keep the level sensors. Havent removed one for a few years, but they aren't held on by much more than a couple of small bolts or screws.
If you remove quite a few small useful parts, you could make as much from selling them as you get for the rest of the car in scrap.  :y
In fact, if I were you I would advertise it on here as breaking for parts, then in a month or so, sell the remains for scrap.  ;)
