CV Joints $25 each, $2.50 core each = $55

I guess the $170 estimate wasnt that accurate huh? The prices here suck
I can finance the parts to you if you like... pay me $50 a month or something.

First off, if you want to try to back out, call me at 503-649-3820 and ask for mike... as I will need to call them BEFORE they pull any parts. Like I said on messenger... I know NOTHING about brakes or suspension... therefore, when jason and I only got a tie rod end and a rotor off in 1.5 hours... it just isnt gonna happen... My suggestion... either call me EARLY and get me to cancel this order (and pay richie to pull it... he actually knows what he is doing), or just take it and make payments. I DO have the receipt to back this all up and even the BFH wasnt helping on this car (from canada) so there really wasnt much of an alternative left
I need to know QUICK though if something needs to be done though!

I think I will leave the pulling of the parts to someone else. Richie? Any chance you could pull the parts for tex (I placed the rotor and tie rod end that I had back with the car so its all there) If you really can get it for $150 or 100 go for it. I will even transport it up to seattle to tex

When you buy a door asembly from U-Pull-it you get everything for like $45 bucks.
But if you were to buy the regulator $15, Window Glass $20(?) Window Regulator $15 Door Panel $5. Then you go back next day and buy the door for $25. That is like $80 bucks.
They were pricing you for all the parts seperately, while they were price me for a rear brake assemby front brake assembly, etc. plus I go in there and the manager knows me by name. Which always helps.
The reason why I have not gone and got it are
1) IT is to DAM% Hot!!!!
2) I owe a board member money and do not feel right about spending money on parts I don't need, when I can't afford the parts I already have.
And I would probably need close to $100 bucks to pull it also. As it takes time, gas and energy.
Tex owes you a few beers for your efforts of being a nice guy.

I will talk it over with Tex, but I may be able to finance the parts with cash, then I can get payment from Tex when I deliver it to him.
If for some reason you do end up pulling it for him/us bring WD40
