Ok, it would appear that the following items are spoken for:
All four exterior door handles Front Driver/Passenger door exterior chrome/weatherstrip trim Front passenger door striker bolt latch unit
I still have plenty of items left that need to disappear. I may not be online over the weekend, but will reply to everyone Monday.
I had a request from DRM19 for the glovebox from my lower metal dash but have a preference to sell the unit wholesale as it is complete but would work with anyone who might want it minus the glovebox so that folks get parts and I am not forced to scrap a perfectly good dash. Any members interested in working out a deal so that DRM 19 can get the glovebox and I won't need to worry about scrapping a parted out dash?
I also still have my 360 engine with 904 transmission that needs to go. I was asking up to $750 for the set on various sites, but they need to go - so $350 is the price. Engine has only 69,000 original miles on it and just got a new double roller timing chain plus new gaskets all around. I was not able to put on the minor items (alternator, power steering, water pump, etc...), but that is a good opportunity for you to add your favorite brands of parts. It was a powerhouse when I pulled it and will serve someone well.

PMs sent to all who wrote.
Parts are starting to ship out for surgical transplant!
Keep me posted on your needs and the good doctor here shall harvest the donor items for you.
Still have plenty of door items, including interior door handles, complete door interior linkage and hand crank units, as well as, rear door exterior chrome trim, including the short pieces at the top rear of the doors and complete interior linkage and hand cranks units. Also have door glass from all four doors.
Still have other miscellaneous items for members. On December 1, 2012, I will be posting any remaining items on eBay (still deciding to do all separately or as one lot) as I am not permitted to have any of these parts around by the end of the year. I will be forced to scrap anything that doesn't sell by December 31, 2012.

Hello my blues brothers and sisters,
Just a note to let everyone know that I still have a bunch of interior and exterior door parts that I am sure members here can use. I've already shipped out several parts recently and for those that have received them, be sure to let others here know if what you received matched your expectations.
There are still a lot of parts, both interior and exterior, for doors and other items. I'll try to get additional pictures posted soon. Many are about to end up on eBay, most likely before Thanksgiving, as I have bills due that must be paid ASAP. Although I completed my unpaid internship recently, it didn't end up in a permanent job, so I am job hunting with two degrees for a leadership job.
The parade I produce each year will occur this Friday night, freeing up even more time to ship parts. Let me know if you see anything in the above pictures that you need.
Thanks to all the members who have obtained parts - I have been privileged to help out the hobby and rest easy each night knowing that the loss of my Blumo has helped nearly a dozen other cars in two countries!
It has been months since I've been on the site, but it feels good to re-connect with everyone.
Recently, ARNEWOOD visited my home to obtain the remaining tan interior parts from my dismantled Blumo for his car. Arne, I look forward to seeing your car when it is done.
I have some remaining parts that need to go. Some are in my sister's storage unit and she has had a falling out of sorts with the family. I want to clear them out before she has a chance to scrap them (hood, doors, trunk lid, front bumper). I also have some miscellaneous parts that I'd like to clear out. The more I can clear out in one shot, the better.
I'll be posting pictures later on today once I download a few to the laptop. Being that this is my first time on in months, I read that spanks79 was interested in if I was parting out the doors? Unfortunately, with them being in a family member's storage box, I don't have that luxury - they have to go wholesale.
Here is what I have so far (remember, pics coming tonight) and ALL parts are off of my 1976 Dodge Monaco base sedan unless otherwise stated:
1. COMPLETE set of (4) 1974 Monaco Hubcaps 2. (1) Coolant water bottle 3. (1) Charcoal Canister 4. COMPLETE wiper system (motor, transmission, arms, blades, wiper fluid bottle) 5. Set of (2) plastic firewall leaf grates 6. Dash instrument cluster with 100 MPH speedo & headlight / wiper switches - 69,000 original miles showing 7. Set of (3) radiator support brackets 8. (1) Radiator support brace 9. COMPLETE lower metal dash with glovebox & ash trays 10. COMPLETE set of (2) 1974 Monaco Tail Lights with wiring harness and extra tail light housing/trim without lens 11. (1) 1976 AM only radio 12. (1) 1976 Dodge Grille with (4) trim pieces 13. (2) 1976 Turn Signal housings with lens set - complete 14. (2) 1976 Headlight set - complete 15. (1) Hood in good condition (minimal rust) - complete with hinges 16. (1) Trunk Lid in good condition (minimal rust) 17. (4) Doors - complete with interior mechanics intact, windows and hinges (interior door panels already sold to ARNEWOOD) 18. (1) Rear Lower Seat in factory tan material with small tear 19. (13) Assorted exterior chrome trim pieces (complete rear window set, side gutters, front lower and upper trim and a few others) 20. (1) Unity S6 Spotlight (unknown if works - never installed) 21. (1) 1976 Front Bumper assembly
I have a few other miscellaneous items as well, including a set of hubcaps from a 1980 Newport (only 3 match). These items have all been kept away from moisture since being removed from my car nearly 2 years ago - far too long for me. ARNEWOOD has seen them within the last 14 days. I tried to get him to take everything since he had a big van, but he said no. Even if you may not be able to use something, but think someone else might, please take it and share it with the hobby. I don't want anything to be lost to scrap if at all possible.
I haven't listed prices - some who have read my past postings know I am only out to help the hobby. I'll try to do the best I can on shipping, but I suggest pickup for the big items (hood, doors, etc...) if possible.
Here is my e-mail for my personal contact info as I know members get a little worried when you post addresses and phone numbers: email@example.com. ARNEWOOD, and I think a few others here have my info and he has my permission to share it. I can text pictures of a specific part if I haven't gotten them on here yet.
Folks, it is good to see how everyone's cars look and though I honestly miss my Dodge, I enjoyed it immensely during the 10 years we were together. Someday I'll own another one. Until then, I'm looking forward to seeing all of your cars in Aurora, Illinois this fall. KEN DUNN (1991 Ford CHP PD car) and myself talked recently and I WILL be attending CEVS with his car. We made the Woodward Dream Cruise in Michigan last year where I met a couple of you - I loved it! I can't wait to meet everyone else from the hobby and ask all of you to try as hard as possible to attend CEVS.
