Like it or not, but a car is the most visible statement of luxury and the most potent status symbol. However, is a car and people will not notice it until you customize it according to your taste. That flashy body paint, those shining chrome mirrors and radiator grilles, ultra-luxurious interiors, leather seats, and other additions make your car the object of attention.
There are many local shops all over the country that specialize in not just restoring cars, but car parts as well. You may also find plenty of specialty restoration services online as well. This will normally require you shipping the part to the shop and more than likely paying for the return shipping, but if this is your only option, it is better than not having the part at all.
Next, you might want to check into parts stores as well. You may have some success with this method, but if you struck out finding the car parts at the dealer, it is unlikely that you will have much luck at a parts store considering most parts stores get their OEM parts from the same place the dealer gets theirs, from the closest manufacturer parts depot.
The idea of fixing up cars has been around just about as long as there have been cars to work on. Make them faster, make them shine brighter, make them more comfortable and everything in between has been done to cars. And it doesn't matter what type of car it happens to be or how old it is. It doesn't have to be a sports car. It can be a tired old station wagon, a mini van, a pickup truck, a compact car and everything in between. If it has wheels, with the right car parts and some time and work, you can dress up just about any ride.
What your options are from that point on is one of two things. You can try and salvage the part you have, which you can try this yourself if you have the aptitude for such things. However, in other cases, you might want to enlist the help of a professional.
