Looking for some vintage repair parts

Hey guys,
I posted in the B/S/T area looking for some odds and ends to restore a few of my vintage vehicles and have had no response. I also went to ebay but can't find the parts unless I want to buy a huge lot of other parts that I don't need.

Can anyone here help me out or point me towards another resource?

Here's the B/S/T link:

good luck with that snow cat launcher. if you do find one it will cost you way over the value of the vehicle itself.

also , to avoid infractions, you might not want to start 2 threads with the same title that link to each other.

we would like to see you remain on the tank

Darth: Thanks for the tip. Looks like I'm SOL.

Crock: Sorry for the double post. I did not realize this was not allowed. Just trying to figure out the best place for the most exposure. Apparently ebay is the only other resource?

I think there are some sponsors of the site that sell parts. I knew of one.

I've used this one before with good results. Wait times vary from 1 to 3 weeks, but I've always received the parts I needed.

I'm not sure if they may have anything but Broken Arrow Toys does reproductions of parts. I have a link if it might be of any help.

Broken Arrow Toys (Powered by CubeCart)

IMO I would see if there are any vintage toy stores in your area that could keep a look out for any parts for you. There is one here in Georgia that I go to and they keep a look for anything in particular you might want. I might also consider Joelanta around March. They usually have a good selection of dealers that might be able to help.

I have to hunt around to see if there are any vintage stores... All I've found is the new retailers and a couple of comic books stores.

I'm hunting on ebay but the prices are either crazy for one or two small pieces, or I have to buy a giant lot with tons of misc parts that I don't need.

Joeparts is a really good site, recently picked up a ton of parts from them, felt the prices were more than reasonable, and I do beleive all orders are free shipping
