Hey everybody! Brand new to the forum, brand new to the stang and brand new to modding... cars anyway. The only thing close to a mod that I did to my last car was drop in a K&N. So, my question is, what do you guys normally do with the original parts that you take off? I've been modding motorcycles for years and years, and I've always kept my original parts and reinstalled them before I sold a bike. Since mods really don't add any value to the bike, I'd get more by selling the parts separately. Now on cars, the parts are a lot bigger, and I don't really have a place to store them. I just installed the SVT mufflers on my GT and have posted the originals on craigslist. So tell me, what do you guys do with the take offs? On a side note, what do you guys think is a fair price to ask for the original mufflers? They were only on the car for three weeks and are in good condition apart from some minor scratches on the tips. The cheapest I've been able to find them online new is $157 for the right and $241 for the left. ANyway, glad to be here. I hope I can learn quite a bit while I'm here!

Everything ive taken off my stang is in my garage. Its not the most space efficient thing to do but for the most part i feel better keeping the factory parts.

My parts are scattered about the house. One day this car will be worth more original than modded so when it comes time I will re-install all the original parts. Or if anything ever breaks im not forced to but something else.

Hey Morty, I see you're in VB. I'm in NN, so I'll just bring my parts over and scatter them all over your house too! :D

Stuff them into my garage's attic. I'm with Morty, I might need them later either for a part or I'll need the money.

You can do that but ill warn you they will probably end up on craigslist. I could always use some extra cash for new mods :D

Depends on what car or car part honestly. For me anyway. If I don't think it is something I can easily pick up I will store it away.
