    http://www.gemini-sales.com

    4wheelparts will also be able to get parts but found the "3 week" shipping period is double that so stopped dealing there

    I find gemini site really sucks, and the online shipping qoutes are ridiculous so dont pay that. I emailed them and said my items could go in an bubble envelope and ship for less than $10 and they agreed to ship for $15. Well worth it since my 4 pieces i ordered were 25% the cost of everywhere else.

    What kind of parts? rockauto can probably get you whatever mechanical parts you may need. that sure will look fancy with some aluminum 5 spokes ..

    Mechanical is not the issue....it's interior, emergency brake, seats, etc etc

    Hell nobody sells a replacement gas tank what gives??

    Had about 6 of those all parked at our place last year for 1 of my father-in-law's Shriner parties. I'll ask him and see if he knows where they find stuff for them.
