Fr those of us that are always building, changing and wiring. What are the best sources of 12/2 volt supplies youve found. Best place for hardware. Best source for OEM parts. And best place for aftermarket parts. I have yet to see a thread on this as of yet. SO lets start it here.

I love this idea. I prefer to be creative and build my own expo gear when possible. My wife calls the garage my “therapist”. I go in there and come out happy and inspired.
So here’s my addition: I am currently building my own roof rack using v-slot bars and hardware from these guys:

Cost effective and lots of cool stuff for building.

I like the switches from OTRATTW . The amount of graphics options for their Contura series are great, look good and they're Carling sized, so they fit in the spare button slots with minor help.

So I ran across this thread the other day

Aside from that for electronic panels, wire, connectors, switches, and such I get everything either from Waytek Waytek | 12V Electrical Components Distributor or from Del City and have for years.
Outside of that I pick up a large number of things from Marine shops or aircraft supply stores (mostly online) for stainless and corrosion resistant supplies.

Dell City I like especially for the asphalt coated loom and the fiberglass looms. These are more robust than the cheap plastic ones and what was used when building wiring harnesses for excavators (when I worked in that industry).
