I researched the mr2 hood and from what I understood 1985-1989 mr2 hoods are compatible, butm Im not certain that these sources I obtained my information from are legit. So

I may not be entering the correct information I'm having difficulty, with the inventory search, several times I have attempted to find out if this facility (pull apart nashville) carries a black mr2 1986 hood. Im still uncertain as to rather or not the pull-apart- in nashville carries the hood im in such great need off.

Nevermind, I DID find that the pull-a-part in Nashville does have serveral MR2's in stock. I assume the color of the MR2's is not avaiable on-line and that I will have to attend the facility for myself to see if they have the color (black) of hood Im seeking.

Can't help you with the bumper. That might be necessary for the head lights but I don't think you have to do that for the hood.

Don't rely too much on the inventory search. They won't know the colors of the cars or the options it came with. They haul out two rows of cars to be crushed and bring in two new rows every few days, so what they have is always changing. There will always be at least 2000 cars there. Also, they wouldn't know which parts have already been sold from any car. Ya just gotta go and look.

This yard can be kind of hard to find because you can't see any of the cars from the road. It's near a highway; I remember that much. Once you turn onto that final road, it goes uphill. Seems to me it's about a half mile. There is an auto glass place just before it. They're both on the right side of the road.
