I’m sending my wife to Japan for three months to visit friends and take an intensive language course. I can get parts through people like ponyboy and Akihabarashop.com and probably will while she’s gone (shhhhh! If you don’t tell, I won’t.), but if she’s got the chance to pick up some stuff firsthand that I can put to use later (Got a cab sitting in the garage, old Centipede with metal CP, so I’m set for JP parts).
What I’d really like to know is if there any shops that she might be able to walk right into and grab parts from if she’s equipped with pics and part numbers, and what the prices are like direct, rather than having them bought by someone else and shipped direct to me.
Any help would be appreciated.
edit: I suppose I should mention that I’m in the States.
