Question Favourite/Best Wreckers

Hey guys,

I need to buy some parts for my monty and I was just wondering, in Melbourne, which wreckers are the most reliable (in terms of having parts in stock) and have decent prices.

I'm on the western side of Melbourne, but I don't mind travelling across the other side of town. I drove to bloody Paint Mobile 4 times in one week just to get some damn black pinstripping.

Thanks guys,
Dave.

Good one in Kalamunda W.A.
Called Walliston Wreckers, usually does the right thing by me.
He also has impressed Auscarnager, plus somebody else here who he did an engine swap for.

I've also heard that Commodore Falcon Autos are good, from memory they're in Malaga? Anyway they advertise in the Quokka.
