Why I LOVE Junkyards....
I spent the day at 3 Pull and Save type establishments (25 Wagon/Sedan's). I decided to see if I could find some random stuff, and why the hell not? I did need a TPS and a jack for sure, but really wanted a cargo privacy cover. OF COURSE, no covers. Here's my comparison to Napa. I had a clear choice to make which allowed me to spend the rest of my day drinkin beer and eating peanuts while tinkering at a highly reduced rate of cash. $450ish for $6. WINNING!!!!

Throttle Position Sensor: $330 + tax (Boo)
Jack: $89.99 + tax (Boo)

Throttle Position Sensor: $3 + tax (Purchased)
Jack: $2 + tax (Purchased)

Ha ha! I spent quite a few of my days off roaming the junkyards. Subarus out the yin yang here. I come across cargo covers every now and then, but sounds like if you keep looking you'll find one. I'll keep my eye out for you next time I go roaming. :)

I found one on ebay, but it's tan. I am picky and trying to find a grey one. LOL. I am slowly starting to put this thing back together. I paid it off yesterday.

Don't settle! :)

Nope...Tan would not look good with grey everything else.

509, I'm heading out to get a gray visor for my sedan I'm selling. I'm gonna try the yard across from Northern Quest casino. If I happen across a cover, I'll snatch it up for you.

I never knew there was one out there. I live near the north Pulll & Save.

I've been at your pull & save 2x in the last two days. If I wake up in time, I might go out this afternoon and get a new front door.
