    Thank you so much for the link!!! So far most of the parts I'm needing are coming up as discontinued. And as for what they did to the poor girl I have no idea. But the more I'm looking the more I'm finding they may have had the mind set of "Use and Abuse"

    Edit for my bad formatting lol

    Yeah. GM parts are definitely going to be hard to find. Even my NBS Yukon is really hard to get a lot of parts for. I’d be searching Ebay, Craigslist, whatever. Now that you have those part numbers though, you can search using the p/n and hopefully find some replacements.

    We made it home, ~600 miles and a fun vacation in there to boot!
    The ole tub even ran with the big dogs on I-10 around 85 mph.
    She cruises REAL nice around 70 then gets progressively harsher on ride and shakiness. I’ll get the tires balanced this week and test again,it could also be load rated AT tires and 20 year old rear shocks....

    You’ll use that website for googling the part numbers, not many parts left in stock. If you’re near a big city there’s likely a GM parts warehouse that can track down some items, a couple of them here in Houston have bailed me out with small specialty items like hood hinge bolts. Otherwise it’s eBay or the junkyard.

    PS, you’ll never find a good cup holder, mirrors or visors so repair yours if needed and move on.

    I'm in Casper WY so my nearest GM parts warehouse is either in Cheyenne (2.5 hours away) or in Denver (around 5 - 6 depending on traffic)

    Well today, after two days of rain, I discovered that good ol' FrankenBetty isn't leaking anymore. But, the left front bottom light housing is leaking. It's half full of water. Stupid cheap Chinese parts. Time to go pull, check for cracks and look for new ones on the interwebs. I think I tossed out my old ones.

    Edit- Went out to pull it off and drain it. Well, will wonders never cease? Some brainiac (me) installed the damn lens upside down. Abso-freaking-lutely brilliant.

    Sounds like a challenge to me. If you all let me know what you need, I will keep an eye out. I like visiting the salvage yard.

    Visors, cup holders, OEM mirrors that don’t shake (can’t tell in a yard).

    I have seen many of these items in the salvage yard, but haven't priced them. What should I expect to pay?

    The Youtube videos show that removing should be easy, except for the visors-couldn't find a how-to for that.

    I'll probably go tomorrow and post what I pulled.
