Is my 5000S worth parting out?


I now have a 89 200TQ to replace my 5KQ (Thanks Bob).  Many thanks
to the people who pointed me toward to various Quattros.  

Now comes the time to figure out what to do with the wrecked 5000S.  :-( 
The insurance Co. wants around 1K for the wreck, is it worth
parting out myself?

There are some parts I might like for the 200TQ what bits are
compatible between the 5KQ and 200TQ?

I installed a set of hella H1/H4 headlights in the 5K via a set of
headlight buckets and trim from an 85.  Naturally I would like to fit
these to the 200TQ, has anyone done this?

I have a second set of wheels for my 5KQ Snows, will they fit at 200TQ?
