Well, there are a few considerations- first off, I would argue that I have the car very reasonably priced relative to the G4 market as is (12k), and second, I am in no hurry to sell it. Put those two factors together, and I do not feel a need to eat $1500 on it. The only REAL motivation I would have to sell it now is this D90 project, but $1500 would be a rather substantial amount relative to the $15k I would put into this project.

As for doing it myself, I have neither the space nor the proper tools (locally).

If it was closer to Maine we'd be fighting over it. I dont have the room here to take on this kind of project but id happily stick it in my barn in Maine to rebuild. Im still trying to find time to drive down and see if there is anyway to pull it off.

I didn't mean to lose the $1500, I meant you could repair it very inexpensively and get your full asking price. That being said, I totally know what it's like when you don't have your tools handy. I spent 3 years in CO that I had to pay a shop to do stuff I normally would have done myself at home.

Good Luck with both your Sales!
