Picking up parts car, what to keep, what to throw?

Picking up an 89 '7 today or tomorrow for a parts car. Mostly for the brakes, 5 lug, diff, engine, tranny, taillights, and windshield. What else should I grab from this car before scrapping it? Is there anything that tends to break that I should keep? Anything else valuable that someone else might want?

Thanks!
Carl

If you're going racing, save the doors and fenders! hehe

If the engine is going into an S4 chassis, you better grab the ECU and wiring harness, at least the engine side. Or you better be prepared to figure out what versions of which pieces you're going to be using.

Thanks guys.

Was going to grab the S5 engine for mostly its high comp rotors and put them into the S4's but will grab that stuff too while I'm at it.

You'll need the S5 brake ducts for the bumper too. Grab the oil cooler. If you can, the fuel tank is a little larger...in case you plan on doing enduros.
