They're fairly active on this forum, I had watched some of their tech videos on youtube in regard to changing out weather stripping and other general how to videos they had made. I decided to order some stuff from them. The shipping was quick and the parts were really great quality. 1aauto.com

Re: 1aauto.com

They gave me a free t-shirt a while back. I use it when working on the car so hey, ++

I use them more for my daughters daily driver than my restoration stuff but they're still good people.

Re: 1aauto.com

The videos are nice, I am more familiar with 4th gens than I am 3rd gens, so little stuff is different. My goal isn't to break stuff trying to get it apart. The third gen seems to have more individual pieces to it versus the later cars. It's actually kind of cool in a weird way.

Re: 1aauto.com

I've purchased a few times. All OK except one which they didn't cover or help with.

Ordered window sweep pads for thirdgen, and they sent this pack of small felts labeled 1970-81. I contacted them if this was right and would work for 82-92, and they said yes. So I kept them assuming they were correct.

Well, this year the restoration started and I found there is nothing in the doors that looks even close to the 1970-81 pads.

I paid $30 for this pack of tiny pads. Firstly was overpriced for the product, and secondly they did not cover the mistake. Hence, I am not inclined to order any more from 1A.

You have to peel off the old felt and glue the new felt to the existing window guide adjustable bracket..... I was disgusted by the price of little bits of felt and after pondering it for a while realized that the factory had used a much larger bit of felt than actually contacts the window - they wrapped it around and under the bottom of the bracket. I peeled it off, washed and fluffed it, and glued it back on wrapping the flattened, worn bit around the bottom. Presto - new window felt. Works awesome.

Re: 1aauto.com

One of my very favorite videos of theirs is how to easily change the spark plugs on one of our Third Gen's.

Re: 1aauto.com

They are on ebay too. I bought some headlights for a non-thirdgen car from them recently and had to pay maybe $5 to go with 1aauto instead of some ebay seller from China.

Who knows if the headlight assembly from 1aauto was made in China or elsewhere. For sure at least some of my money was going towards a USA company. Also, if I had trouble with the part, I think 1aauto would have resolved any issues better than a non-US seller on ebay.
