I haven't been very pro-active in these forums, but I must say that I got a lot of useful information from the folks hanging out here, and very much appreciate everything. I've always been a DIYer so all the detailed walkthrus have been very helpful.

My MPV was hit by another car and declared a total loss, and this less than a year after spending $3500+ on a transmission rebuild. Sad The damage was mostly cosmetic, so I drove it around for a while, and eventually bought a different car (not another MPV).

I'm wondering now what do do with it. I was thinking of taking it to the junkyard and getting my $200, and taking the light fixtures off to sell on ebay; maybe I'd clear $500 for all that. It's a shame to let that transmission go to waste, though.

Anybody with a better idea?

The front bumper cover was cracked, as was the hard plastic bumper underneath. I plastic soldered the bumper cover and painted it, so it looks reasonably OK. Basically that and a new headlight got it looking fairly normal, but things never really fit quite as snugly after the accident.

Shortly afterwards, the car developed a leak in the gas tank right at the front seam. A local mechanic wanted over $900 to replace it, so I decided it was time to say goodbye to the old peevee.

Where are you located?

There are lots of MPVs in the scrapyard here. Front end components and the fuel tank shouldn't be hard to replace...

Otherwise, if you're close, I might check it out.
