    11. Parts Source/Assistance for Locating Parts & Repai

      You can find out where other members are finding parts by going to the bulletin board and posting a message. Tell us what part you are looking for. Members in your area might be able to tell you where to find it in your area. They might be able to advise you on who in your area has the best price or maybe give you a heads up on a place that didn’t live up to their expectations. Maybe you aren’t looking to buy parts. Well, you can still make this forum work. If you think you got a good deal or a bad deal, come in and share your experience. Maybe you bought parts online. Post the web address so other members can shop there and get a good deal too, or avoid that website if you didn’t have a good experience.

    12. Swapper/Trading

      Here you can post anything for sale or trade with other members, as long as it's not illegal. It's designed to be a place where you can post an item for sale and members can ask questions and add comment. For each new item posted, please start a new thread. Don't add your item for sale as a reply to something someone else has for sale. Keep in mind, the public cannot view this forum so you still need to post it on the Classifieds, which is viewed by the public. Don't forget, this is a great place to post a message if you are looking to buy an item.
