Not sure what part of SoCal you're in, but check the pick your part in Monrovia if it's not too far from you. They have 2 rabbits, an 81 base model and an 82 gti, that both had good hatches from what I remember. If that's not close, you can actually sign up and have them notify you when different cars come in at yards closer to you.
