    Myself and another FABO member were trying to come to a agreeable number for the mounting hardware under a console if available even the floor pan portion for the auto shifter linkage hook up any thoughts for a good number that these parts would normally go for any advice would be greatly appreciated sorry almost forgot to mention 68 Dart I know of course my name may indicate my intentions but I guess I could be working on anything

    What ever the number is, put everything in writing and have both of you sign duplicates pieces of paper saying exactly what is to be done and what the agreed payment schedule is to be. I made the mistake of trusting a car of mine to a member here and he has had the car for almost 3 years and has barely touched it but I have paid him way too much in advance. I’m not sure what to do about it. I will probably not see the money that I paid him and I have three parts cars at his house that he was supposed to use to help with the building of my car, Most of which are missing parts that were not used on my car. Don’t trust anyone.

      If you want a specific number, for God's sake, give specifics for each part you're talkin about. I don't think anybody here can read minds or has a functioning crystal ball......although I had a crystal ball. Once.

        I think he did say what he was talking about. Number meaning how much $ .I have a 69 Dart hump section (auto) with brackets , shifter, and linkages (not for sale) so I'm curious what number you agree on . :popcorn:

        First of all rusty I don't know what you don't understand this isn't rocket science ya know the stupid metal do dad's that mount a console to the floor and possibly the hump section of floor pan it obviously can't be to hard when the very next three days yeah I have the exact same thing and was wondering what it's worth so would you care to wager a guess or just have fun getting in my backside some more

          Also I will mention I'm the purchaser so I have no idea what these parts even look like yet I'm just trying to come up with a common offering price because on here the also common response is oh I don't know what will you give me and this is the first one I have ever tried to buy any help ?

          He doesn't know what you are asking and neither do I.

          "I want to buy / sell something but I don't know what it is but I want you guys to tell me what it is worth"

          Is that about right?

          Here's the answer:

          Hell I don't know!!

            What ever you feel comfortable giving. If $50 is comfortable them go for it. There is no cut and dried price for any used part. New parts are what everybody sells them for. That's what they go for. Oldmanmopar sold the whole works except for the knob for $100. The seller is happy and so is the buyer. That's the way it's done.

              $100 plus 2-day shipping. Or Slightly less. Or quite a bit more. It all depends on factors of the heart. Love. Love is the only answer.

              Punctuation helps a whole lot when it comes to understanding what someone is writing. It can mean multiple things without the punctuation. I obviously thought you meant something different.

              Why not just start a "console brackets wanted" thread?

                  If you have to search old boneyards for such part, take it out and pay those guys?
                  If you could even buy it new, what would it all cost?
                  Figure it as scrap price, then add the sellers abilities in salesmanship?
                  How bad do you want it, and how bad does the seller want the $$??????
                  I would give the $100 but hey I am spending your $$$$$$
                  Wife told me first thing this AM I will be a jackass today?????

                    I would not have a problem paying $100 for a mint set, now a rusted beat up set is way different, $20-$50 maybe?

                    I would probably make my own! Nobody is going to see them. Right.

                      What is the seller asking or did he dump it back in your lap with a "wadda' ya' gimmme?. If so offer him $20 and deal from there. Have to start somewhere.
