Good Sources for Parts?

New member here so be patient with me.  New owner of what I would consider a rat-rod 63 caddy.  Previous owner painted everything flat black, in an obvious attempt in covering up body deficiencies.  I'm interested in window frame replacement rubber, and immediate need for a drivers side Exhaust Manifold.  Any info help is appreciated.See More
