So you spend the time cleaning the parts up - probably using some sort of ultrasonic cleaner, as even a few weeks on the road will build up grime in crevices, or oil residue on the internal parts.

You then need to get the original style box to put it in. Who on earth buys "new" parts that are dirty and not in a box? I'm struggling to see $30k profit after all that time. Perhaps you could sell them to a shady garage who will just tell the customer they were new parts - the garage will probably give you 25% of the true value though, since they know they're not actually new.

Also, all the panels are painted - not new.
