Where do folks like to get OEM body parts?

My trunk lid continues to rust and Ford continues to deny coverage under corrosion warranty. Apparently rusting seam + flaking paint is not enough for them, and it looks like I may once again have to remedy the defect on my own.

Ford sells OEM lids for about $550. Yikes.

Yeah, that's Tasca/AutoNation/etc. "discount" price for an unpainted OEM hood...NUTS! I think they may be primed black, but that's it.

My decklid is rusting from the seams, so if Ford won't warranty it, it's basically scrap metal. Be nice if the car could withstand water... LOL

Lol, now I'm starting to understand why some of these mustang owners don't drive their cars in the rain.

I usually take some tools and a shopping cart and walk around my local Wal Mart parking lot. See how many parts I can snatch up before anyone notices.

Just kidding!!!

I was watching COPS the other night when a guy literally did this at an apartment complex. He stated the car hadn't moved from its spot in 2 weeks and looked abandoned so he thought it was okay to strip the parts he needed off of it lol

LMAO! In this world, I would not be surprised. In the age of technology, I run into people who don't even know how to power on a computer.

I find great deals at LKQ. All you need are some tools and you're in business. Not sure how close you are to one, but you can google the closest to your location. I found a fender same color as my daughter's '01 GT paid $35 for it and didn't have to paint it.

My only worry with this is if the lid has seen any water, it might have the same problem at the seam.

I checked the local inventory on the LKQ website (looks like they have a distribution center in the middle of the state), but their prices are in the same ballpark--$550-$600 not knowing color or condition. If the price difference were b igger, I'd be inclined to chance it, but since a new, rust-free OEM lid is about the same price...

I can probably get a new lid painted for a reasonable price if I wait and bundle with some other touch-up stuff I'm planning to do later in the season.

I guess the secondary question is does anyone know of ways to get better pricing than what Ford Parts departments are offering online? Special code or something?

So, it turns out car-parts.com lists stuff that the LKQ website does not, so I lucked out and found a complete lid in my color with identical options (spoiler, sat rad). And the bonus is it comes with other goodies like the emblem, blackout panel, third tail light, etc...all for $20 more than FoMoCo's ludicrous price for a primed decklid without anything else.

From the pics, it looks like the driver of the donor car had lost an argument with a tree.

So I grabbed the LKQ decklid, but it had the beginnings of the same rust problem. So I worked with Tasca to get as good a price as possible on a factory replacement, and I just had it painted the other day while a crack in my Cervini fiberglass hood was being fixed.

The rusted hood had additional holes under the spoiler for the back up camera (I don't have the camera), so water may have gotten in there. Plus, there are two round drain holes at the front corners of the lid; the old hood had those covered with clear stickers, impeding drainage. Weird.

Fingers crossed the new lid holds up. It was primered differently that the old one, so that might help too.

Anybody need a factory lid in Grabber Blue with some rust at the seam (but no other damage) for really cheap?
