Do they ship? There's a body part I've been needing for awhile.

so how is one supposed to know who these 3 guys in the D are??

there are lots of people who part these cars located all over the country, a few of them are members here & they ship... or can always check craigslist or facebook in your local area or ebay. or just post a wanted ad in the firebird parts section for the parts you need.

there are plenty of "real f body people" that havent been to the T/A nats for one reason or another...

Any names you can drop? Haha.

I need the inner door jamb support piece, since the one on my driver side is rotted out in a spot. It's a separate piece with its own part number, but is spot welded on. You can only see this piece if you remove the door jamb vent, and on my car there is an adequate but not ideal repair over it. It'll do for awhile, but I just want to get the piece to have it for a future correct repair/repaint.

Every parts car I see is being sold as a whole, you never see people offer up "parting out" cars, anymore, so it's been difficult getting this piece. Also, I guess the inconvenience of the fact that it will have to be cut out...

Franks Pontaic Parts or Second Gen Graveyard

for members on here, might check with ladytata for a parts car that can be a donor for body parts like that. there are a lot of other sellers on ebay, other forums & FB like posted above... just need to price shop a bit because prices vary a LOT for the same exact part, new or used. & post a wanted ad on here to see if anyone has a car to cut that piece out of.

I LOVE that 83. I had a friend bought one brand new. I had an 82 base firebird but wanted a trans am.
