I wasn't trying to slight you, just posting an option. Our salvage yards out here only keep the cars that are popular. And then only for a short time. If the parts don't move the thing gets crushed and is gone forever. I too would rather have the original. I have to agree with you about aftermarket. I bought some replacement kick panels for my convertable and there is a gap where it should meet the door jamb. The manufacturer was shocked that it didn't fit right out of the box.

...the aftermarket doesn't line up like the originals a lot times. Best to just go salvage in my mind.
