1/4 panels

Has anyone used Goodmark 1/4 panels on thier project? How did they fit? I have a 68 GTO coming up that needs half 1/4 panels and wheel housings installed.

I recall a goodmark hood looking good coming out of the box, but when on the car it had to be tweaked and skimmed. good thing is the 68 gto doesn't have super sharp definitive body lines on it, which is one less worry.

I used them on a 70 gto. the partial panels aren't that good but the full quarters are nice. I would buy full quarters and cut as needed.

I've used Goodmark rear 1/4's on several 68 Firebirds I did and was quite happy with them. I used a Goodmark hood on one of the cars and it fit exceptionally well, I was surprised...don't know why but to be honest....it fit better than the original right out of the box. Tech 69, your right, the fit on the hood was great but it did need a bit of messaging to be as straight as I wanted it. It needed to be worked in about 3 areas, not the whole hood, maybe because it, like the GTO, doesn't have those sharp body lines.
