    Check out the FAQ section on how to navigate the forum.

    You should not be asking the same question in several forums. All your posts don't belong in the General Discussion area. When you make a post put it in the proper forum that deals with the subject matter of your post. I have merged your posts into one forum which deals with the questions you ask.

    Many questions you may have probably have been answered before to others and are in posts that you can search. Use the search box in the upper right hand corner of your screen.... . read the FAQ section how to make searches. Our members try to be helpful but don't expect one on one hand holding ... its your obligation to learn how to use the forum.... don't expect anyone to teach you. You'll learn a lot just by reading the new posts that come up each day. Just click the "new posts" link in the upper left corner and read the posts.

    Good Luck with your new car. Post up some pictures.

    Vinnie, Mark II parts are not as easy to obtain, as say a 1957 Chevrolet. The only dedicated source that comes to mind is Mark II Enterprises, run by a gentleman named Jack Rosen www.markiiparts.com/products.php Jack has been serving the Mark II for many years. I have included a link to his parts catalog. Parts for Mark II's, as a rule, are not inexpensive and most of the time, elusive. Keep an eye on this forum's Parts For Sale section. A number of parts show up in that section. Also watch eBay. Don't forget to check out items for sale in magazines such as Hemmings.

    Jack has a good website with pictures if not prices on all things.

    You can also call Lincoln Mercury Old Parts store, or Lincolnland. They also carry parts. Also a number of parts interchange with T-Bird as well as Lincoln and Mercury so check the thread on the forum on interchange for T-Birds.

    There is a Vendor listing sticky in the parts section - check there first!
