I'm just wondering if anyone has any preferable wrecker for their CV parts and such. Going to start calling around but thought, what the hey, someone must know something!

Specifically, I'm looking for a driver seat...it's bent to the point where my back is telling me it's not going to take it anymore... I'm open to throwing some lincoln seats in as well as I would assume they'd be way more comfortable, but at the same rate I'm not looking to spend mucho $$

Thanks for any help!

PS: I have a 2001 cvpi

Never know when it'll be useful.

That is one clean 92 Interior, the dash looks way better than my old 92

I noticed that too. I may be stealing some parts off of that 92 for my one. I'm in need of a new headliner and some odds and ends

I do 95% of my used parts buying at Empire Auto Parts in Kamloops, these guys have allways treated me fairly.

I am about to take out (replace) the steering wheel with the airbag module form one of my '05 CrownVic P71. As well I can take out the passenger airbag as well.

If is anyone interested let me know
