So I just found someone parting out an 84 p type.

I recently got my 86 about a week ago.

Which parts are the hardest to find that I should make sure to get?

I'm planning to pull as many things as I can even if my car doesn't need them yet.

Any suggestions would be great, could probably sell anything I don't need to.

Anything made out of plastic, rubber or vinyl that is still intact and that you can remove without damage. Any metal body parts that are not rusted. Anything electrical other than common bulbs. Any glass that is not broken, cracked or scratched. Any textiles that are intact and look like they might could be cleaned regardless of color. Anything mechanical other than common wear items like bearings and seals that do not cross-reference to at least five other Toyota vehicles.

In short, if you would be content to put it on your own car, grab it. Regardless if yours will ever need it or not, somebody's does so we don't want to let it go to waste. Too many viable parts have already gone through the shredder and those "self-service" salvage yards are notorious for finding half the car destroyed by inconsiderate customers who rip, tear, cut and stain perfectly good parts in the process of removing the one piece they need. Or they leave the car with the windows down, hood up, doors open, sunroof open etc. and then mother nature finishes it off. Whatever extras you come up with, post em up here in the for sale section.

Definitely the bumper covers even if they are slightly damaged, as they are hard to find and can be repaired by a body shop. Sun roof and hatch if they are not rusty.....

Yeah that's what it's sounding like lol. Unfortunately I don't have room to do something like that.

Any tips on removing window glass? How do I keep the exterior trim from breaking?

Each piece of trim is held on with different types of clips. Its hard to describe each one and how they work, but people have posted about them in the past. The windshield and quarter windows are glued in. You have to poke a cutting wire through the urethane in one spot then pull it all the way around the perimeter. Hatch glass is a rubber gasket. You can try to save the gasket by prying the trim out and folding it back over the pinch-weld but you may wind up tearing it as its probably old and brittle now anyway. Not sure if Raptor still has any of the 85 style reproduction gaskets left (85 doesn't have the metal trim). If they are still in stock, you can just cut the old gasket and buy a new one. But when the stock runs out, that's it. Probably be a decade before George gets another batch made.

There is a thread on how to remove the hatch glass without cutting the gasket by using a small putty knife/scraper and a screwdriver. I have removed two, and it is not difficult once you get the procedure down. I purchased a replacement in case I ruined the gasket, but I was able to get it off intact, and it was in better shape than the spare I bought.

And I agree, just taking the whole car would be ideal. Kevin K. tossed a lot of interior trim and such and just sold off mechanical items that he had accumulated over the years. He gave me a hatch carpet and a few other small items......
