Replacement body panels

Postby black.fire.wagon » Sat Mar 26, 2016 4:16 pm

I'm looking for a lot of panels for my 71 coupe.
The only source for replacement panels like full quarters is http://www.showcars-bodyparts.com/vega.html
And I have not heard many good things about them.

Are there any other places to get quarters and tail light panel, etc? Or am I stuck dealing with this place with bad reviews.

I doubt I would do it again. Rob just isn't trust worth to ME, your results may vary. If I had to deal with him I would try and find him on eBay. At least there eBay and or PayPal may go good for some possible disasters. I don't have a user name for him there but he is supposed to be on there. Harry

I would prefer steel parts wherever possible. The thing is light enough as it is. And I prefer to weld it together.I'll try to find his eBay account. PayPal will definitely handle any issues that way.

Seen a post on FB about this yard near you with a few H-bodies, maybe you can find something usable there.
