Hello, I am currently parting out a 1951 LandCruiser. I fellow stude member called me up and wants the rear window SS. It is still in the car. It is in great shape. No dents or scratches. What would I charge for this item. Would I charge him my time and effort to take out and send. What is that worth.

A part or parts like that are worth what the buyer is willing to pay, they usually are not concerned about how many hours you spent removing it. :)

But you did say you are parting the car out anyway, so it should be no loss to have the car opened up for rain, insects, rodents and animals to enter when you remove the glass to remove the mouldings, if it is being stripped to the bare body and frame anyway.

Usually $40-$60.00 should cover it. One of the hardest to find, are usually the small transition mouldings that join most Stude. Glass Mouldings together.
