Default Best place to find parts?

I'm looking to buy a new steering wheel for my '03, because the buttons are sort of melted and destroyed. Is there a good place I can find one other then trying to pull one from a car being parted out on Craigslist?

I'm also looking for those awesome red bowtie headrests. Is there any 3rd party place that makes quality ones?

Sorry if these are stupid questions, haven't had any luck finding them on my own.

A member on the forum here is selling replacement buttons. Look in the classifieds here. Easy for you to swap out yourself.

You can remove your head rests and take them to an upholstery shop and have them sew on some Bow Tie Emblems. You have to go t the mom and pop places as some shops wont due that due to copy right rules.

Good luck, cool to see your getting your Monte back to it's original glory

I'd rather swap the steering wheel, forgot to mention that it is pretty worn down. I see The_Maniac has one for sale, and I'll probably shoot him a message once I become a full member.

I'll try to look around tonight before work, there's quite a few of those places in my area.

Wasn't too much left for me to do, previous owner took really good care. I'll try to post some pics at some point once I get some time.
