2009 Scion xB (eaten by Rats)

So, my xB has been dead in the driveway about 4 months now. I park outside and we have rat problem. The rats ate most of my electrical wiring and now, my fuel line and fuel pump wiring. The Toyota dealer wants $7k to fix all and that's not gonna happen. Does anyone know how to rat proof a car and where to get parts, that aren't from the dealer?

Kill the rats. They'll get in if they're determined enough.

Low and overly slow :-/

Sounds like you need a wreaked parts car

you can get another used Gen 2 and transfer all of your good parts over for $7k or less. I've found a tone via, Cargurus.
