Default what is the current going rate for BG5 JDM legacy tailights & USDM headlights/gril?

my mom had an accident with our 95 wagon and the insurance company just declared it a total loss.

i managed to salvage the jdm rear lights and center panel from it almost intact. the corners are a little cracked on the center panel but everything else looks good.

i also had jdm projectors and center grill but those got destroyed in the crash ... but i still have the original USDM stock headlights and grille with me.

i'm planning to put everything up on ebay soon. any ideas on what kind of price should i be asking for and how to deal with shipping costs? the parts are so big and fragile so i know it's going to be a bitch to mail.

Shipping is actually not that expensive - I shipped my headlights in a 10x18x6 box for $11 ground, took two days to run from Cleveland to Fort Meade.

There have been a few sets of tails up recently. Two sold for a Buy It Now price of $125 + 40 shipping. A third set sold for $138 + 40, and I just bought a full set for $170 shipped. Yes, I lost out on the first three.

sorry for the late reply... i've been having a lot of grief dealing with insurance adjusters and trying to find a new car i just haven't had the time to be around anymore

ugh i'm so choked... i hope they aren't really that cheap because i paid $300cdn to get them here

this is what i have...





the corners are cracked. i clear-epoxied them to keep them from getting any worse, but it's high up so it's usually hidden undereath the bottom window seal.

i also have these from a bg9... same as bg5, but the turn signals are smoked and not clear:



unfortunately the center piece for this set was destroyed in shipping so i was sol... used the insurance money to get the bg5's instead. any idea what the bg9's would be worth?

how does $60usd for the pair shipped usps standard ground w/tracking sound?

fyi... one of the bulb sockets was cracked from someone overtightening the bulb i think. it was repaired at some point before they ended up with me. it's not visible from the outside and was repaired well. i can try and take pics of it when i get home after work but i'm not sure if it will show because the damage was small.

$50usd shipped? since they go for that much on ebay w/o shipping... i'll just pay for shipping.

i'm sure the tabs are not broken in the grille. the black clips were attached to the radiator support when the grille was removed... i don't think those are meant to come out without breaking them. sorry i'm going by memory here since our beloved legacy is gone from our lives

okay i checked... the tabs on the bottom are not broken, and all the black clips on the top are intact.

$50usd shipped. i can't go any lower because shipping is almost a 1/3 of the price
