So here are a few more goodies I pulled from the Cavalier tear down. The first is the exhaust connection and catalytic converter. The exhaust system was in surprisingly good shape for almost 300,000 km. I kept the catalytic converter and connections. The flanges are in good shape and except for a little surface rust the assembly is solid. If your in the Kirkland Lake area and need one of these, message me to arrange pick up, fits a 2004 Cavalier 2.2 liter, probably fit the Sunfire as well, free to the first person to pick it up.

The power steering assembly didn't fair as well, it was in the perfect location to catch all the road salt and the oil lines and cylinder show it, I am surprised I didn't spring a leak. There are a few good items I want to salvage from this assembly though. Tip to the GM designers, a shield to protect the cylinder and lines would extend the life. Delete that last comment, who the hell do I think I am, Ha ha.

Now here is a real winner, the four speaker system and AM/FM and CD player with wiring harness (off screen). I guess the CD player kind of dates me, but hey I still have a large CD collection. I think this will be my new sound system for the ventilated shop, I miss my news and talk radio when I am out there. Around 300 bucks right there.

Four sets of very heavy duty hinges. I know I can find a use for these. I could go on but you get the idea. Pack rat lives here, ha ha. If I utilize half the stuff I collect, I'll be a happy man.

All loaded up.

Now for the real dirty part of the clean up and another trip to the land fill.
