Exclamation Help me find body parts!

Besides the very expensive original Toyota parts, where would I be able to find body parts for my '88? I have been lucky enough to have found the hood and fender I need at a recycling yard. Still, I need a bumper kit. Im shooting for aftermarket, but the only aftermarket ones I have found are some really nasty (IMO) body kit style bumpers that look tacky on the MKIII's. I'd like my body too look original, but I dont want to spend $750 on an original bumper kit.

I have had no luck in parts stores in my area nor ebay. I am in San Diego. Help appreciated.

Sorry pal, but it will probably be expensive. I bought an 89 Supra and looked all over New Jersey's junkyard paradise without luck. I wound up spending a little under what you quoted. I still needed a hood, and dontcha know, I find an 88 in the junkyard in my town, right under my nose all the time, I could have saved a bundle. I bought the hood for $65 but when I went back to check for more parts the guy tells me he crushed it! ARRRGGGHH! Who crushes a Supra? Anyway, if you can develop a relationship with a reliable dealer, and you spend some big bucks initially and tell the guy you will be back for more, you may do like I did and find a nice guy to give you discounts. I now get 15% off every purchase because I go to the same guy every time. Shop around and find someone you can develop some loyalty with. It may pay off. And aftermarket parts aren't always cheaper.

Sincerely,

James in NJ
