i found a guy in texas that has a hatch with all the parts i need in mint shape and hes got good prices but i am trying to figure out if its cost effective to have him ship it as compared to paying for local j/y overpriced shit. what do you guys think is the best way. greyhound maybe? a freight company?
id get your parts from a local junkyard that way you know they are legit parts AND know you are not going to get scammed by someone who takes your money and run.
