Question What to Do with Original Replaced Parts

My car is not a show car. Just a well-kept 6 cyl. convert. I have replaced the dash padding and the rear interior quarter panels. I kept the originals. Any reason I need to keep them that you all can think of? Someone had spray painted the original dash padding and it had started to crack in a couple places. The rear interior qtr panels were also cracked in a few places.

They must be in poor condition or you would not have replaced them. The quarter panels , if they have any good metal in them could be used for future patch panels in other restorations. Otherwise, keep a clean garage and junk them.

I'd say make a clock or other "garage art" out of the dash.
There may not always be a practical use for replaced parts, but there is always something unique and different you could create with them.

I would say junk them, but then this is someone that has the original grill hanging on the wall at the front of the car and an exhaust from my husband's truck on the floor so I probably shouldn't be giving advice.

It's just the top padding. Not the dash instrument panel.

If you save it, we'll probably see you on that TV show with all those Junk collecting people. No one will ever need it, get it gone!
