    Hey guys, restoring my family's orig. 1977 Accord and need some advice.
    First, looking for someone who does good metal work for a reasonable price in the Southern California area.
    Also looking for feedback on good places to find nos/old/used parts for an Accord like this.
    Did a little research on the car tonight, and it is a fairly early U.S. one.
    The first Accords to come to the U.S. were mfg. in May 1976.
    Mine is a November 1976 mfg. so 7th month of Accord importation to the U.S.
    and it's vin of 7432 out of 83,941 total '77's says it was in the first 8.7% of the '77's.
    Interesting. I wonder how many orig. owners have older ones in the U.S.
    that are still being driven and in excellent condition?

    Here is a preliminary list of parts I need from a silver car, preferably a '76-'78:

    -roof panel
    -cowl panel at windshield
    -front bumper (or I could straighten mine but why?)
    -hood/headlight trim surround
    -outer door molding
    -tail lamp bulb backplate
    -dash or dash top piece (crack repair)
    -rear struts

    If any of you guys see this stuff in good cond. or a '76-'78 silver doner car in California,
    could you drop me an email/PM so I can check it out. I have located most of these parts
    at yards across the U.S., but would like to locate them locally/in-state first.
    Anyone have experience with UPS/FedEx shipping big stuff like this?
