I own a 1989 Toyota Tercel and it needs so much work done to it.I was wondering if anyone knows of somewhere that does cheap but good paint jobs, and can get me good parts to help refurb my car.

Paint is sadly something where you get what you paid for. For a good paint job there are many hours of sanding and prep involved. I'm not sure it's really worth it for a Tercel m8...

Unfortunately, in the world of automotive paint jobs the words "cheap" and "good" don't go together in the same sentence (or the same paragraph). Sorry for the bad news! If you're talking about replacing your body panels then I would recommend trying to find an online retailer that may have the panels you're looking for. You could purchase them yourself and have a body shop install them, realign them and paint them for you. This should at least save you the cost of the markup for the panels from the body shop.

in the automotive world things work like this: Cheap Fast Reliable pick 2. so you're better off either just sucking it up and paying, or maybe trying to find body panels that are in at least better shape at a junkyard.

ok im sorta new to the whole car modding thing, but where would i go to look for interior parts that are compatible with my car, i mean i've lokked but no such luck.

There are a few places you can get parts for your car. First, your car is compatible with parts ranging from 89-94 on tercel, & paseo's . Here is a few places I shop CARID, ROCK AUTO, AUTO PARTS WAREHOUSE ALL OF WHICH ARE ONLINE AND EBAY.
