What do you guys do with your old parts?

Just curious. Usually we mustang evolution swap out OEM parts for better aftermarket parts. What do you do with the old parts? You can either sell or keep smaller parts for spares, but what about things like stock driveshafts or wheels or even hoods (if you got a new one). Local selling sites I guess?

I have every piece I have ever taken off my car including hardware in my shed. Just in case. Whatever that means.

I bought a 2014 GT new. With every mod I've done I kept the stock part and every single nut and bolt. Figure if I sell it someday that person may want to be able to put it back to stock. Boxed and bagged everything. Kept every piece of documentation. Original brochure, window sticker etc.

Save all of mine also. Inside the storage shed and the boxes also. If I decide to sell, I will give the new owner all of the stock parts I have.

I am really glad that I saved all of my take off parts in various storage locations all over southeastern Virginia. I needed them to put humpty dumpty back together post destruction by my previous co-driver.

Wow i'm honestly surprised that mostly everyone keeps all of their stock stuff! I have everything laying around as well and was thinking about getting rid of it but I guess I'll keep everything. Certain things like my stock shaker 500 amps and headunit, engine bay prop rod and oem air intake, and stock mufflers won't ever make their way back on this GT so I may sell those. Reverting back to stock form would take waaaaay to many hours to do XD

The hours involved was the only thing that kept my wallet in my pocket after solo nationals, when guys were selling class winning Z06's for $16,000. At that price point, I was wondering why I bought a mustang.

I hoard most of my old parts as well. I still have some parts for vehicles that I sold over 30 years ago! Lol.
Some parts that I've saved over the years have come in pretty handy! The rest? I'm getting sick of moving them around.

I carefully take them off with the thought that it's worth X amount as a used item to somebody and way below a new price and then think I'm going to take pics and post it on here and then....
It sits in my garage forever. Until a random other forum member came to my house to buy my stock hood and then try to give him all these other parts for free.
And I live in the middle of no where near Canadian border so this was a truly one time opportunity to see a Mustang besides mine and a forum member.

And then..Recently, removed the chrome headlight switch cover and also chrome door lock switch covers because I'm not a fan and came with the car....looked on AM and was shocked that they sell for $25 and $30! I'm too lazy to try to sell them when they feel like $5 for both!

I can take it and it's deserved for all the hate I spew about the dip. I'm try to not be as much of a rude dude about it though but still promote a higher standard for Mustang mods. I'm slowly letting it be ok though that the dip does work for some people and I'm not the anti dip crusader.

Don't forget to ask my opinion about CAI's ! I'm all about that.

Most of the parts I've taken off are gone...given away...sold...put in the trash.
I wouldn't have the time or energy to put it back to stock.....I think I still have the stock driveline, sound tube, LCA's, front swaybar and stock cloth interior sitting in the garage waiting for the scrap man...

I keep everything, I have a track record of getting a different car every year or two. I just get bored.
I'm over a year in with the mustang though and I'm still pretty content.

Whenever you get bored with a Mustang, you just add another mod! And there's always another mod available...

I look at it's value and figure in the value of the used Mod part and factor in how much effort it is to swap the part out.

I've sold more stuff than I would have figured I'd be able to (stock exhaust and intake) I still have my OEM base model spkrs and shifter if anyone wants them

I do tend to buy used if possible (exhaust/CAI/wheels/MGW) and I have a pile of used/never installed stuff to do my suspension when I have time.

With my past cars I always keep what I think I might need in the future If I'm still under factory warranty to return back to stock. If past warrant I try to sell those parts I don't need on ebay or craiglist/forums.

Good discussion. For the smaller stuff (LCAs, PHB, end links, etc.), I've just saved them since they don't take too much space. For the bigger stuff (stock POS driveshaft, and soon stock hood), I usually hang onto them for a bit, then try to sell them to offset some of the mod cost.

I just toss them here and there... wheels all over the place... been tripping over my factory midpipe for a while on the floor in my shed. Need to find a good place to prop it.

Collectively, all of the members of this website could probably have a pretty decent Mustang parts Swap meet.
