Local Vendors?

Hi Guys,

I finally have the money and blessing of my wife to work on my '66 coupe. I've owned it for 15 years (was my first car) and it has been out of commission for close to half of that time.

I was wondering if any of you have a suggestion for a local vendor for sheet metal and other parts I'll need while restoring my car.

Thanks,

-Darren

Thanks! I'll give them a shout. I used to go to Bel-Kirk 10-12 years ago but stopped due to what I thought was a very bad service orientation at the desk. Has that changed at all?

No offense here... I had the same reaction. It looks like a new shop has opened in Bellevue called Blue Oval Pony Cars run by Dave the former shop manager and mechanic at Bel-Kirk. I wonder if he is any different than what I experience at the counter there. I would rather spend my money at a local shop then send it elsewhere, but only to a certain extent.

Thanks,

-Darren

I've had Dave at Blue Oval do some work for me on my convertible. As far as I know, he is not a part vendor and orders his parts through some of the large mail order places. IIRC, this was due to his close proximity to Bel-Kirk and Scott Drake not wanting two dealers so close to each other.

Great, thanks for the feedback guys! I'll try to get some pics up soon of what I'm dealing with. It looks like I will have to replace both quarters as well as the drop offs and the taillight panel for starters. Hopefully I'm not getting into this over my head!

Are you talking about the old woman? Seems like something is not right there...?

That shop helped us out in a pinch once when we came up for the Round Up. And they've seemed OK each time we've been.

Hey if they make you happy then by all means buy all your parts from them...
Huh? Whatever.

Re: Local Vendors?

There's also B&M in Monroe for parts. I don't think that was mentioned.

I've also had work done by Blue Oval. Dave is a good guy and I've been happy with the work.
