Automotive Electronic Parts Distributers

What sites/distributors does everyone use for switches, relays, wiring, etc..?

I use Copper Electronics & a few others, but am curious of the variety out there that people use & like doing business with.

Thanks

Remus, sorry for the late reply. Thanks for the link

I actually get my coax from a local communications & electrical supply. It's called ESI supply. I can get their phone number & contact info if you like. I don't think they have a website, but I will ask next time I am in there.

For parts, I like these;

Mouser Electronics - Electronic Component Distributor
Electronic Components Distributor | DigiKey Corp. | US Home Page
US - Electronic Components Distributor | Newark.com

And coax from;
Universal Radio shortwave, amateur, scanner and CB radio since 1942

If you can, use RG-8X. Same diameter, just as or more flexable, less loss (not that it matters in 20' and shorter runs), little more expensive.

Thanks for the links, & I completely agree with the 8X. That's what I use in my mobiles.
