    Does this website have a place for a Suppliers list ? It could be in the form of a spreadsheet. I am always looking for some hard to find parts , For EX : Disc brake rotors for my 67 Newport, and speed hours looking for sources. I would be happy to assist in such a project.

    I have a part time thing doing distributors and ignition parts. And then @mobileparts sells NOS brake parts. Good idea on the list There are a ton of members that have businesses I try to support.

    I am new to FCOB , just joined yesterday. I presently will hold off my donation. I prefer to donate my time. I bought my 1st Chrysler car just 2 months ago and currently dont have a list. I can make up a "Sample Spreadsheet " if you like. I have no idea how you could add it to your site. Do you want me to create one ?

    Then I guess you mean having a suppliers list is not a good idea ?

    Unfortunately, such a list might be misconstrued as an endorsement of the particular businesses, by the website. A poster/member has an unfortunate poor experience and the whole forum can suffer, plus loosing an active member. Getting individual parts into the mix can be trouble, too, by observation.

    Plus, as time progresses, unless the list is kept current and updated regularly, it can become "stale".

    On the other hand, just a listing with a link to the business's webpage might be a good deal to have, as many other forums/blogs do. Individual businesses could request they be listed, if desired. Such a list might be "a sticky" at the top of one of the forum listings.

    Making use of the "Search" function might also get you the information you are seeking as to where to get things, too. Sometimes, "the search" is more fun and educational than any spreadsheet might be.

    Just some thoughts,

    I understand what you are saying but at least starting a simple "SUPPLIERS LIST " is better than not having one at all. Since I have owned my car 60 days ago I have been looking for Window Felt for my 67 . I joined the forum 3 days ago and someone suggested this site......https://www.restorationspecialties.com/assets/pdfs/2018_PDF_Catalog_RSSI.pdf
    Pull it up and look on page 32 and it shows what I could not find on the Internet.
