    what GM parts should I buy for my "shelf stock"

    Well, being used to 1st gens and 2nd gens, I have learned to scoop up all of the replacement parts I could EVER need... I am quite anal about my GM parts.. When you work work aftermarket crap, you come to respect original GM parts... So PLEASE, everybody post up what has failed, broken or is prone to keep breaking............here is what on my list now>> 2001 WS6
    .
    window motors -both
    fiberglass door panel skins
    exterior door handles
    door mioldings
    rear bumper cover
    front bumper cover
    headlight switch assembly
    multiple bronze gear sets for headlights
    all weatherstripping
    interior door panels
    all interior switches
    console parts
    door emblems
    ram air stickers
    door handle trim pieces
    rear hatch solonoid/ lock assembly
    both fenders

    I know some of the younger crowd will think I am nuts. But after you spend HOURS to modify aftermarket parts so they might fit, you will understand

    How about Hub Caps and the Lug nut caps. Those are both plastic and prone to fading and mishandling. I wonder if I should use the term Center Cap instead of hub cap...

    What about leather parts that wear, like the steering wheel or the shifter knob? Can those parts last in storage? or will they just dry rot like tires?

    Also, what I have read over the years to use the aftermarket window motors from Auto-Zone, because of a life time warranty and a better design.
