OER vs Goodmark vs Shermann vs Auto Metal direct

I am about to restore a '72 Camaro Z28 / RS, that suffers from rust, especially in the lower / rear area.. Browsing through Summit, I can see there are 4 major brands of sheet metal / patch parts..
Are any of them better fitting than others..? I'd hate to have parts sent to europe, just to find out I got ie. a bad fitting inner fender, that needs loads of work before it's fitting right..

Also.. Does anyone have recommendations about replacing the urethane nose (Z28) Any makes better than others, or could it be a good idea to install a fibreglass replacement instead..?

all aftermarket sheet metal is junk, in my opinion. It never fits well and there's always bodywork that's needed. It's rare to get an aftermarket part that's REALLY ready for prime out of the box. Goodmark and Dynacorn have fooled me on occasions with quick glances but as soon as I really sight down it or put a block on it the imperfections are revealed, and they are always there. When I see guys just throw on parts and there's no mud on there, I have a good feeling their level of straightness differs from mine.

Well said tech69, agree with you 110%. You cant beat NOS sheetmetal whether it is GM,mopar or Ford. Just picked up a set of Dynacorn full quarters for a 69 Shelby I have been working on. Did not want to go that route but the originals were REAL bad, cant hardly wait to see what I am in for.

Somewhat as I expected.. Now.. Several sites are advertising "original parts", but I still haven't found any that seems to have pre '78 parts, and at the same time being real serious about the term "original parts".
Any good links..?
