for all those lamenting my cutting up an 88 2dr K for 5spd parts and patch panels for my 86 wagon, check out seller ezautowreckers on eBay. He is parting out a maroon 88 2dr 5spd just like my parts car (no right mirror even). car is located in East Wenatchee, Washington, so not bad for all you west coast guys. not sure if he'd sell it complete, but good source for 2dr parts, plus the maroon bucket seats and 5spd pieces like the 87-88 mini console, etc. wish i had more room and money to burn....hate to see the buckets and Aries-Reliant specific 5spd parts go to scrap!

Thanks for the tip. I sent a message asking about a few things. The seats are pretty ripped up though so they're done for.

the eBay user name is ezautowreckers

still has some parts listed for that maroon 2 door. bucket seats may need to be recovered, but the parts that are most valuable on that car (besides the obvious 2 door bits) is the mini 87-88 Aries-Reliant only 5spd console (don't forget the bracket welded to the floor), brake\clutch pedal setup, clutch cable bracket on the driver strut tower, etc.

there is also an auction for a floor shift tilt column. that specific listing is as a lebaron, but it is an aries being parted and the car has the mid-late 80's full console for floor shift automatic (can be used for a 5spd swap also). color is gray with cloth buckets.

if this yard was local to me, instead of on the west coast, i'd grab up these parts just for posterity's sake (the 87-88 5spd console is very rare)
