Thanks for this - it's a great resource. I was going to suggest/ask if someone would be willing to compile a list of suppliers for mod parts also.

I'm sure there are a few of us here who would like to give modding a try, me included, but sourcing parts reliably I expect can be a bit of a minefield.

I'm aware of places like Dagaz, Yobokies, Crystal Times, etc, but I'm sure our more seasoned modders would be able to expand the knowledge base?

Just a thought...

Far and wide I will find 'em and I ride 'em
Bricks and mortar get my licks just for kicks
AD or authorized I don't analyze
Retail, wholesale never fail
Online or offline, I find I don't redefine
Too big to fail or yard sale they all hale
Run or hide just for fun deals I find
