money for converter internals?

If I gut the catalytic converter I have laying around can I sell the internals? Or is that pointless?

Hey thanks Nick. Where would I go about taking the cat to get it recycled? Would I take it to a place that bums take the aluminum cans to? Oh and thanks for helping marc out on saturday. I called him after I got out of the shower but he said you already were gonna help him out.

My buddies garage got hit three times. They would come in in the middle of the night and cut them off with a sawsall. Funny thing is he was there waiting for them the third time. One got away but he held the other at gunpoint till the state cops showed up. I heard they were getting somewhere like $100 apiece for them at the scrap yard. I had thought about getting rid of mine but with all this emmission crap I may need it to put back on for an hour or so to get inspected some day and I heard they were big bucks to replace so there it sits in my barn. Hope none of you guys come steal it now.

David , don't you swap your cat on and off for Cal emissions? I keep mine for when I go to smog, I bolt it back on.
