I have finished designing my parts for my custom rusty. I was wondering where/ what type of place i can go to have these parts made? can i make them myself? they are a great design (for making a sick road rusty) but where can i make them?

uhh........what kind of parts are they? if there metal, most machine shops will do it for a price, but if there rubber or plastic, you wiull have to look at like a company that makes toy trains or something.

Check for aerospace companies in your area. Boeing is located here and there have a huge surplus store.. everything from big 2 foot by 1 foot by 8 inch titanium BLOCKS, so seat cover material, and they are the worlds largest seller of remanufactured drill bits or something. But any surplus yard, s yard, metal recycler, they might all have what you are looking for used. Remember, just cause it looks dented and nasty doenst mean it cant be milled into perfection.
