    What do you need? I have two rear quarter panels from a 76 or so that are just taking up space in the garage. I think the only difference is that the passenger side quarter has the gas cap exposed, instead of behind a door like your 84. I'm in Colorado Springs, so I wouldn't have to figure out how to ship 'em! [​IMG]

    I just ordered some doors from Goodmark Industries for my 72 Blazer. They were 290 as opposed to 400+ everywhere else and they are supposedly not made overseas. There address is www.goodmarkindustries.com. I have also used yearone.com, lmctruck.com, chevyduty.com, impalas.com, and brotherstrucks.com. Happy rebuilding!

    For body panels, I think its a good idea to use the original equipment manufacturer. I got my hood replaced with an aftermarket one, and it has never lined up properly, and is madfe out of cheaper metal. I took the windshield out to replace the gasket, and my knees put little dings all over it that make it look really bad. LMC has a disclaimer that says to expect some small dents in the panels since they are made overseas.

    Eric Veng is the supplier your thinking of. Alot of body shops use them for aftermarket stuff. Foreign made I'm pretty sure. I saw a panel place in Leominster MA that makes replacement panels for the bed edge, but can't find the ad now. Maybe some Mass wheelers could help us out on this one. It was something like Monty's Panels. The guy runs it out of his house.

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!! [​IMG]
