But they only got it halfway off. Hehehe.


Driving to work in a truck that sounds like a race car was pretty sweet. :smile:

When i worked at Lowe's we had asshole ganking catalytic converter's out the ass in the parking lot.. Made me laugh every time.. But man, Those things are expensive to replace.

In case no one knows, They have platinum in them.. Making them really valuable.

Especially with platinum at around $1950 an ounce...

Holy crap, I wonder how much is in a cat. That's just about as much as my entire truck is worth.

Not very much...a few grams up to maybe 10-15 grams for a big truck.

Of course with platinum being worth what it is, even a few grams is worth a couple hundred dollars.

its very dangerous to extract the precious metals. Ive heard of one case in the news of a man who died trying to get the gold out of computer chips. i guess youd really have to know your shit.

I used to do that.

Not dangerous if you are well versed in safety procedures involving nitric acid. Some people use mercury and heavy volatile toxic metals isn't my thing.

The red/orange vapors that evaporate from conc. nitric acid doesn't taste or smell like cherry kool aid, best to wear a mask.

they usually use coke, spent coal... a million converters a day
couldnt keep up with the demand for steel production, the platinum
is why they're valuable... people steal them for the scrap value
so they can get their meth, if the scrap yard is getting $60 then
you know they're worth double or more
