Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
Good original part that has not been noticeably twisted, bumped, bent, or heavily rusted. Notice the factory indentations that are a result of the manufacturing process (dent from jig). Also know that there is always at least a couple minor dings or scrapes from decades of being the lowest point of the car. Much better fit than repro and note the repro is made from thinner gauge steel. Also know that we generally do not bead blast our used parts before sending them but often we show them on the site cleaned up so you can see details not seen under a layer of paint, grime and surface rust. It is crucial that you use the correct tapered bolts when installing these.
