Please forgive me if I overlooked this in my search and it has already been discussed. I am starting on a 68 Camaro and need to know which company offers the best quality parts? I know theres an NPD about 60 miles or so away and a friend had good luck with there parts on a Chevelle a few years back. I wanted to check and see what suppliers you guys are using and the satisfaction level. I deal with aftermarket/repro parts regularly so I know they have to be "massaged" sometimes to get a good fit, but just wanted to see who seems to be the best quality. Especially for the emblems and trim. Some of it I can have rechromed but the emblems and taillight trim etc are junk. Also probably gonna need a Driver side full quarter and full floor pans from firewall to taillights. As always thanks for all the help.

I have found that a company called TRIM PARTS has the best quality for what your looking for. Most everything they make is USA made so expect to pay a little more than the average repop stuff goes for. On the sheetmetal Dynacorn is your best bet, and you still may have to trim to fit it properly.

I like goodmark for the door skins and 1/4's but I like the full 1/4's and cut them down,they fit so much better than the half 1/4's ,the floor pans are good the rear wheel outer tubs are a little crappy but the inners are good front fenders no good but only tried one and returned it never tried a second..pretty much all good with the exception of the fenders, when they offer two, get the more expensive one you'll be better off...Oh I replaced the rear frame rails too and they were perfect...the cowl hood was the best I ever got only needing a little poly putty around the outer edge and some deburring underneath ,minor hammering at the corners ,all and all a very nice hood.
On the 68 everything is about the same but the firewall and dash were very good also

A close freind is a Goodmark dealer so i use some of their parts ,price is rite ,but for most consistant good fit very little prep work National parts depot has the best ive used But prices are higher ,when considering labor cost to repair cheaper parts NPD make sense to me.My opinion
