    I have had my clogged factory cats sitting in my garage for over a year now. I understand the precious metals in them is worth some money.

    Does anyone have any experience bringing them in to a scrap yard?? What should they be worth? I do have both the front and rears.

    I kind of searched the internet, found some places that want them, but is it really worth the shipping?

    I would think you should be able to sell them to someone for the precious metals?

    I guess, the question should be, where do you sell them to get the most??

    Looking thru the internet, I have seen places that pay around $100/piece for factory medium size import cats. But, that would require me shipping them and in that case am I stuck with them saying they are worthless and never getting paid?

    go to a scrap yard and see if they take them, offer to let them match the vin # or write down your info from a picture ID

    or find a friend with a liscense lol
