    New to restoration, and wanting a general consensus on where everyone purchases the majority of their needs from. I have used classic industries and fbody warehouse for some items, but curious if there are better options or ideas.

    I have bought several parts from most of the suppliers out there, they all have their strong points and weak points , you have to look for one part at a time and compare price and the shipping , pay attention to where that part is coming from, who made it, certain places make great parts worth the money , others not so much, and the price will reflect that , IMHO , you have to compare and do you homework , to get the best parts are the best price

    Besides of doing your homework. do look closely at the prices and shipping. Have seen where part A is selling for a $100.00 but the shipping is $158.00 and the same part else where is selling for $180.00 and the shipping is $58.00 and again same part from another vendor sells for $140.00 and has free shipping.

    Pay's to shop around.....

    I buy a lot from Classic Industries, but for me they are in driving distance so I do not pay shipping. Shipping can be very expensive for all the suppliers. Get on the mailing lists, like their Facebook pages, so that you can take advantage of their specials. Classic will have special with discounts and free shipping on different holiday weekends. NPD sends me deals from time to time via email too. But always research the part you are going to buy, sometimes the reproduction part is complete junk and you will do better finding an original part from ebay or here at NastyZ28.com.
