Default 356 restoration need help

Just started working on a friends 1959 356A. I am having problems finding parts. My old Mid America Motor Works lists most of what I need but no longer carry the items. Who is the best supplier. Currently looking for turn signal flasher. Any help appreciated.

I would try performance products. I can get most of the mechanical stuff, but for things like carpet sets, and trims, etc Performance is going to be a good shot. IIRC it is www.performanceproducts.com Actually i think i may have a carpet set for a 356 from performance products sitting in the back for some reason.

PP had some great carpet sets but for some reason they stopped selling the different colours and now sell just the black set.. if you get stuck then check out the best guys in town for this.. Auto's International.. they made up a few sets for me and the last for my 1954 Pre A I would say they come just right.. so some times you have to play abit and wet and warm up to stretch them alittle to make a perfect fit..

don't forget that a carpet is like a pair of shoes you might be a size 9 but that don't mean every one who's feet are size 9 will fit them

Parts well I have to say for any one on a budget check out foreign intrigue East coast the guys there have so much stuff they forget what they have.. ( i know I have been there ) also check out Jim ( I like Jim great guy ) over at Easy in San Fran again been there. Also Parts heaven have stuff but I will be 100% honest watch the prices. But again I have been there nice guys they used to work with Jim at easy..

Stoddards in Ohio, Will at CSP-USA.com again great people to work with..The parts shop LA for 356 stuff.

alsorts .......
