Just a Thought on Parts

Hello,
After many years, I should be done with my complete Bugeye restoration this summer. This was my first attempt at restoring a car, and I am not sure I would have ever finished the job without help from nice folks on the forum. After my many hundreds of questions, one question I wish I would have asked first was "Where do you buy your parts?" I tried to make it a point to try and buy from supporting vendors first, but they did not always carry all the parts I needed. Has anyone ever compiled a list of companies to buy parts from? It sure would have been helpful had I known about the companies many of you introduced me to at the beginning of my restoration. Just a thought.

I can email it to you if you want. It represent a few years worth of web browsing, and sight harvesting.

Can't you just highlight all the hyperlinks at once, push control C to copy it, and then control V to retrieve it once you know where you want to save it? I thought about that after I opened each hyperlink from Bill's list and saved each one to my favorites. Of course it was more fun the second way.
