Where to.source quality collision repair parts?

I am rebuilding a 2002 that had light collision damage on the left front. I had a body shop With a frame machine repair a minimal amount of distortion in the Very frontmost part of the left frame rail. Now I am ready to start installing some new parts. in the past Iíve done this with parts from Certifit and stuff that I bought on eBay. I was not too happy with the quality and fit of those parts. Anybody have any recommendations on where to get good insurance Gregs collision repair parts for these vehicles.I am in the upper Midwest so it is very rare to find good used parts in the salvage yards.

It's hard to find good panels if Toyota doesn't sale them new. The other option is the carpart network of junk yard parts.

I pulled rear Low quarter panels from the rust free section of CA junkyards.

Not a bad idea plus you can verify what exactly the parts look like.

That would be your best bet if possible as used OEM are the best.
Iíve been lucky enough to score same color body panels in the past which is great as color match was perfect.
