I have a salvage title 96 3.5RL and CarMax only offered me $200 for it on trade in. It runs great, but the body is in rough shape. I was wondering if anybody has ever taken one apart. I thought it might be interesting to remove all the body panels and convert it into something fun. How difficult would it be to strip the car of all the exterior body panels and get it down to the frame and mechanical components? Has anybody ever attempted something this before?

Alternatively, does anybody have any other good ideas for what to do with a (literally) worthless car that still runs?

I parted out a 96 RL. The engine was shot. Sold a lot of parts on ebay, craigslist and on sites such as this. I priced the used parts at about 20% of what a dealer would charge for a new part. After expenses, I netted about $2000. There weren't that many RLs made and the parts are rather expensive.
