Do I just show up to a scrap yard and turn them in for money? I'm not too familiar with the scrap metal business.
I bring in 9 or so at a time, mine are generally torch cut or abrasive chop saw so they don't look at mine twice
kind of funny looking at the other ones there showing up with one cat, crooked ass sawzall cuts and ripped out o2 sensor wires, obvious meth mouth, etc...
ETA: go to a specific catalyst buyer, they'll look up the numbers and give you what's actually in there rather than just giving you 50% of the lowest best guess of the cat's content
