        Like 3g_Jester, I recommend AutoZone. They tend to have all kinds of stuff in there. If you're you're looking for a chrome skull to replace your stick shift with, they'll probably have one.....

          look in your phone book for a maintenance supply place, every town has one. it's where your high scholl janitor goes for parts... grainger is a chain of them.

            your town (provided it's of at least a decent size) will have an electronics parts store. The place where electricians go for their stuff.

            go there and tell them what you need.

              Yup, auto parts stores or real electronics stores. Radio Shack definitely doesn't count as an 'electronics components store' anymore.
