Looking for some help tearing down my WRX for part-out

Happy New Year everyone.

I am looking for an experienced wrench to help me part out my WRX.. It pains me to write this but I have not had any luck selling the car intact. I have an entire '05 STI drivetrain to swap in but after many years with the car it is no longer a priority, unfortunately. The car is not drivable currently so this would need to happen at my house in Santa Rosa. The interior is already stripped out so I am really looking for help taking the suspension and engine apart. Willing to pay a reasonable hourly rate or provide beer/food/. Here is a list of mods..Let me know! Thank you!

It unfortunately has a broken stock transmission but I have the complete 6sp 5x114 swap in hand. It also would need a new tune as the Link ECU is gone. With a little bit of work this thing is ready to roll- its just not a priority for me any longer.

I figure I can make at least $25k parting everything out but it would be a pain in the **** and I don't have a lot of extra time. I would take ~$15k for everything as it sits. I have spent well over $40k in parts alone.... Not including the cost of the car or labor.

Here is the full list. First column is what I paid, 2nd column is what I would ask at approx 25% off. All parts, including engine are in like new condition. Car has seen very few track days. I intended on going full on time attack wagon style, but we all know how life happens..
