If you are looking to restore your car it may be difficult to find the part you lack, particularly if the car is a classic. Luckily, the Internet makes finding an auto restoration part or an accessory much easier than it used to be. Today companies know that collecting and restoring cars is a burgeoning hobby, and auto parts that were once taken off the shelves are back in stock. Use the sites below to order whatever it is you need.
- Once you have decided on a car to restore, make sure to join a club for that type of car. For example, if you are restoring a Packard, join one of the many Packard clubs. Involving yourself with a greater community helps you get valuable advice and can connect you with lots of parts dealers who specialize in your type of car. To find a club, try looking in local directories like Craigslist or running a general search of your car brand name and the word “club.”
- Blogs and forums are another great source for finding unusual parts. Post a thread telling the car restoring community what you need, and you might increase your chances of finding it.
- Weight and location may increase the shipping price of online orders, so be sure to keep that in mind before you confirm an order.
