On a recent '69 Z-28 project, we went through 3 sets of wheel opening mouldings, 2 sets of rocker mouldings, 4 Dash pads, 2 instrument clusters,
2 center consoles, 4 pairs of taillights, 3 rear bumpers, and 2 front bumpers,
1 windshield, 4 door glasses, 2 carpet sets, and 2 body mount kits.
(All brand new aftermarket parts), before we found things that were even half azzed acceptable, but still not really good enough. Also had a couple of package trays, and a rear seat back that were all screwed up.
But at least we were allowed to pay th' shippin both ways.

I've found that there is not much difference between the different vendors
or the parts they sell.

Currently workin' on a '55 chevy, Bought 2 birds for th' hood, (from a company that begins with a D) neither fit, (but were different in the way that they didn't fit) but the origional fits good. You would think that for $300 the dang thing would at least come close.
Same for th' gas flap rubbers, Th' screws that come with th' new ones are not the proper style screws, but when ya got no screws, an' no time to order th' right ones from Aircraft Spruce, yer kinda stuck.
