A good source for parts if your doing up an old ride are the local swap meets.

Call all the junkyards in your area but also make sure to call those in nearby cities. You may find substantially different prices, making a longer drive worth the extra money. Some yards don't pay anything for vehicles that they have to pick up, while others will pay a substantial amount depending on the make, model and what is wrong with the car. It's best to call several junkyards and compare prices. Having a list of damages can make this process smoother as well.
Obtain the title to the vehicle (if you don't already own it). Scrap yards and salvage lots cannot purchase the vehicle from anyone but the owner of the vehicle. Establish ownership in your name prior to dealing with these businesses
