I for one would like to see a forum set aside on this site for members trying to find authentic first gen parts from those members who have them. The difficult issue would be trying to gain some sort of control so that it doesn't turn into an EBay of sorts. I don't have all the answers, but I think something that might work would be to regulate it so that only members post an item, or a list of items needed........PERIOD......and any and all discussions with regards to pics, ID numbers, price, etc., be handled offline via email.
I am not sure why there isn't something like this in place...but I'm almost certain I'll find out. Anyway...I certainly support this idea.
