I would also add that you need to do your homework first, before ordering from any vendor.  Do not assume what year they list a part for is 100% correct.  I've seen errors on just about every vendor's site.  For example, many will have parts listed for 67 thru 69, when in fact the part is only correct for 68-69 or just 69.  Seems if an exact part isn't available they rather sell you something close but not technically correct or something that may not have even been used on a certain year.  An assembly manual can help you a lot.  Also ask if in doubt, there's a wealth of knowledge in the members of this site.
