So who uses who for trifive parts? I’ve used Car Shop / Truck Shop for nearly 20 years but the challenge with them is the prices are great but you never know if they have the items you want / need. Backorders can be brutal, last orders had parts that were 6-8 months.

Danchuk was great but we all know they are gone as a direct seller and some places carry some Danchuk parts but the availability and selection is spotty at best.
Classic? Lots of Camaro parts from them and after sketchy experiences - no.
Woody’s? Haha. Had a part showing in stock, months later after several calls to them and promises of stock and ship dates I finally called and said cancel my order. They charged me a restock fee of %20 on a part they never had in stock!
Mutton Hollow has a positive in that they show “in stock” or not, but an order I placed this last Friday for 16 separate parts had an item that I’d ordered 2 of. Today I received an email that my order was being processed and at the same time another that it was shipped. Several hours later I get a refund for a part that I need 2 of, and the refund was for one of them - part only, no percentage of shipping. When asking why - someone there named Mark said “shipping said you only needed one” - clearly I’d ordered 2, but the upshot of several emails back and forth is that I have to order another and pay shipping again. Just not going to do it. Since when does a shipper I’ve never met and that never reached out to me decide what I need? No offense but honestly? That’s crap service.
I understood the challenges during Covid but actually had better service then than now. Any REALLY GOOD vendors that actually give a rip out there that carries good parts and cares about the guys out there actually building rides? HOH

Have you tried Filling Station in Lebanon, OR?

They always answer the phone and can let you know whether parts are in-stock or not when you talk to them. The online store seems to be pretty accurate now too with regards to in-stock or out-of-stock.

At one point in time I’d used them a lot when I was doing early 30’s Chevies - made a good friend in a person that worked there but once he left things went downhill, at least in
My experience there. I may try them again I the future. Thank you for reminding me of them.

I would recommend just about anyone but Eckler’s!

I invest my money in precious metals, mostly rust!
