Visit swap meets and find rare spares

Swap meets are generally yearly events and attract huge amounts of interest and sometimes very large numbers of visitors.

It seems to be the case that some car clubs or a Rotary Club are usually involved in running these events. The organizers sometimes donate some of the proceeds to worthwhile charities or to the owners of the grounds so that buildings and amenities can be upgraded.

On the day you may meet a stall owner who travels to every swap who sometimes has those hard to get parts, or knows someone else who does. Once you make a contact you have a good chance of getting the parts needed to finish off your classic car restoration.
