There are only a few manufacturers for most parts (AMD, Goodmark, etc), depending on the piece you want, one manufacturer may be superior to the others.  There are a lot of resellers for the parts (Year One, Classic Industries, etc).  So it's best to shop around and find the best deal for both the part AND the shipping.  The board has several sponsors who offer discounts to members, you should check out the sponsor section.

The engine bay is body color.

PS - If you haven't priced a lot of Mopar parts...prepare for some sticker shock over the GM parts :)

Like I said, I want to tear it down to bare and restore it to factory, w the exception of power disc brakes in the front and wheels in 15"of somesort.
The problem I'm facing by restoring it is time and money. So for now, to last a few years as I collect money and parts to do a full restore, it will be painted factory yellow w the hockey stick stripe and throw a set of floor pans in it w wheels and tires to get me by.

Would you plan on doing a rotisserie restoration?

I will probably do the hockey stripes, not the wing though. I also wanted to replace the antenna since it didn't look factory. It was not factory equipped w ac, it had aftermarket air and has been ripped out long ago.
