I’ve been trying to find parts everywhere and, like most people, I’m finding it increasingly annoying keeping track of who’s closed and for how long. Below is a list of the most common parts suppliers with an emphasis on Japanese parts (we all know where we could get HAPPs…any reason to add Korean Fanta suppliers or other non-American/Japanese brands suppliers too?).
DISCLAIMER I’ve found these sites based on your contributions to this thread and my own searching. I’ve only ordered from Akihabara, LL, and Starcab (still pending) myself so far. If you see a supplier listed here don’t assume you won’t get ripped off; in fact, let me know of negative feedback for them in this thread and I’ll remove them to keep the list clear of sheisters and sleezeballs. Status of online store is based on speculation and by no means is this thread the final say of each website’s status.
Akihabara http://www.akihabarashop.jp/ (Japan)

Gamedude http://www.gamedude.com.au/arcade/ (Australia)
Status: Open (to Australians only I think, judging from their checkout page)
GremlinSolutions http://www.gremlinsolutions.co.uk/ (UK)
Status: Open [COLOR=“Blue”]but maybe backed up on orders[/COLOR]
Lizard Lick Amusements http://www.lizardlick.com/ (US)

If I left any suppliers out please let me know so I can add them here. If my information is incorrect please let me know that, too. If you see a booger hanging out my nose, for the love of God and all that is holy let me know about that ASAP.
