    Does anyone have an opinion on which manufacturers/distributors have the best body repro parts (AMD, Year One, etc.)? I was looking at quarter panels, trunk floors, and chrome bumpers. Interested in best quality, not necessarily price. I see that Year One is a sponsor of this web site. Thanks.

    As far as bumpers are concerned, I think Keystone is best. I got AMD bumpers and was not happy with the quality. The keystone bumpers were great.
    I've heard AMD is great for body panels but have no experience with them.

    When it comes to body panels, ive had about the same luck between Goodmark and AMD at least when it came to trunk/floor pans. Youll hear AMD is better quality but i really didnt see it.

    I used AMD and found the rear quarter, roof skin and trunk lid were really good the floor sections needed some work to fit properly and the chassis rails were good these were 70 Barracuda parts I think for a Challenger Dynacorn would be worth a look.

    I used just about every panel for my Cuda from AMD and was very happy with everything. Didn’t have much luck with the challenger fender.

    Year One doesn't make parts. They will retag some of them. no body is perfect on repros. But AMD is the best overall. More support, lots of video help. Good supply on Mopars. Who ever you want to order from, ask who made the parts, if they don't know, go somewhere else Another god supplier of most Mopar stuff is

    Yes it was . They sent me 2 and neither one fit. Put my original rusty one on and it fit perfect. Wound up cutting up the new one to repair the old one. Very surprised considering everything else they made was great.
