That's what I might do Doc. Only thing is, after having talked with insurance I'll get the choice of two options: car's a total loss and GEICO scraps it (i.e. they take Kaylee) or car is deemed totaled and given a salvage title (at which point I could keep her). So the predicament I'm in is is it better to take the salvage title and then remove whatever parts weren't consumed in the fire - possibly getting a better deal then if I took the "GEICO scraps her" deal.

Now the issue is - I don't know if most of the parts are still usable, and I won't know until I am able to ship them off to Warren (or Pete at Pedders for the coilovers). So I'd be rolling the dice - and I'm not really feeling particularly lucky at the moment.
