sheet metal

now 51 years old and just starting my total restoration project of my high school graduation gift which is a 67 ss/rs camaro . I would like to replace as much sheet metal as possible. With so many suppliers out there I am leaning to Goodmark industries for the parts. can anybody give me their opinions on the quality an service they offer thank you

One problem with that. There is no Goodmark in the company reviews. Try a search for Goodmark.

I think we have used all the manufactures, in our hot rod shop. Not all the expensive ones fit good. Not all the cheaper ones are crappy. That would be to simple. On bigger sheet metal parts, we try to buy local. That way, if it has damage ( which it will) you can return it. With out reshipping on truck freight. To be a little more direct, we have had Goodmark parts, that fit like crap. If you have parts that are repairable, at least you know, they fit at one time. It is so discouraging to buy what is suppose to be good quality parts, just to cut them up, to make them fit!!!!!!!
Good luck

A few years back a cousin asked me to "assemble" his 67. A friend of his that does late crash work had bailed out of the job. It had new quarters on, new door skins installed as well as 2 new front fenders; but was all apart.

I put on the reskinned doors and things did not look correct at all but when I tried to put the fenders on, the gap to the door front edge was 1" or more like 1-1/2".

I think the guy took the car completely apart, then used panel adhesive to put the quarters on, but never left an original door on while fitting the quarters. I also think he skinned the doors without test fitting them to the car while fitting the skins.

To me, the car was unrepairable at that point, but my cousin begged me to try anything due to having 15k invested so far.

I ended up adding a 1" strip to the fronts of each quarter to get the door in the correct place. I also added some metal to either the front door edge or back edge of fenders to get the gap close.

I also had to cut & reshape the body detail lines at the front half of each quarter to have them match the lines on the doors.

If I was to try your car, I would not tear it all apart. I would start with one rear quarter, but leave the door on! Then move to fitting the front fender BEFORE doing any work to the original door.
