What to grab off a salvaged Viggen?

This is my first OG9-3/Viggen(1999) and I'm curious what to grab off a salvaged Viggen. I have a little list of my own, mostly minor things. Just didn't know if there were some particular parts I might wanna get my hands on for a decent price. I ran across a 2000 Silver 4DR Viggen in the back of this salvage yard and now have some first picks. The bumper, headlights, grille, cd player, wheels are missing, but pretty much everything else is there. Rear end accident. Pretty sure the engine has been taken out, but maybe still there. Still has radiator and stock fmic.

Jack point covers are like gold. And the side skirts.
Spoiler
Dash facia
Viggen Delta emblems
Interiors can sometimes be sold to make some money if in good condition.
Antenna
sport steering wheel
shift knob and leather boot

Nothing to gain from that intercooler, at least not for you with a viggen. Unless you're like me and had a car with the down-and-back design, instead of cross flow like viggen/ng9-3. But since that doesn't apply to your cars, kinda irrelevant. Interior bits are always nice, if they're in good shape. Door cards, seats, etc.

A few people have been looking for transmissions. Might want to post up where the car is once you've gotten what you want from it.

Intercooler would be a good idea, you can probably sell it here or to some Honda turbo guys for some profit. Emblems (especially the Viggen ones) are a definite yes. I think the steering wheel might be a good one too...but I'm not sure on that one. Side skirts maybe?

I'm sure there's plenty of other things too.

Edit: guess everyone else beat me to it lol

If the engine is still there, grab the trans in the very least.

One could also get the door bump guard molding seeing as they were also Viggen only trim.

Jack points were definitely at the top of my list, along with the steering wheel, emblems, possible front seats(even though they're black on black) and the granite dash. Here's a little sneak peek of the car. I'll definitely post the location and salvage yard once I'm done with it.

Did they put the Viggen emblem on the shifter after '99? It's obvious that this doesn't have one, but I know it's a Viggen.

Interiors are worth $$ ($400?)
Steering wheel - if nice (and if it IS nice I am interested in it if you can get it and sell it)
Dash Bezel - plate
Door Panels
SID
Ignition cylinder, switch, imobilizer, key and door locks.
A/C Compressor if it looks and feels decent
Chrome door pulls
Fender Markers
Viggen Delta's
Leather Shift boot (if nice)
ECU

If the engine is still there, grab the valve cover. It's NLA and there are lots of people who'd like to have one.

anything that is viggen specific is worth money, or if its a common failure item on a normal saab.
