Just ran into a problem fixing up my 1993. I was planning on replacing
the front right side fender louver, but it seems that it's out of
production and out of stock everywhere: Mid America, Ecklers, etc. In
fact, Ecklers has 1984-90 and 1995-96 but no 1991-94.
Worst part of this is that I found out about it this morning after I
brought it to a body shop to replace it as part of a bigger job. Anyone
have any ideas of where I might find one?
Once upon a time, I'd have said Bloomington, but after the trip a couple of
weeks ago, that is not likely anymore.
There is a guy who advertises on eBay from the Pacific Northwest area. I
think he bought out the old Lincoln Corvettes junkyard and some others. I
can't recall his ID but you might find him and see if he has it.
Also do a search on eBay. It has become unfortunately the new swap meet of
the 21st Century.

Local junk yards in San Diego are on a computer network and can search
each other for hulks & body spares. Some ask for a $$ deposit to do the
search (most refund the deposit if the part isn't found or if it's
damaged beyond reasonable repair.) The parts aren't cheap. Maybe
something like this exists in your area.
Decided to try Stoudt Auto Sales in Reading, PA, since that's closest to
Central NJ. They suggested I try Contemporary Corvette in Bistol, PA
(http://www.contemporarycorvette.com /) 1-800-FOR-VETT. Looks like a
nice place. They had it in stock.
