    I replaced several of my panels with em about a year ago...they held up great. I did run Herculiner on every part of them that I could that wasnt getting painted though, and I primered with epoxy primer...that might have helped some. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Where in NH are you located???

    I got my panels- GM replacements from a Chevy dealer in southern VT...lots more $$ than the LMC, or Chevyduty etc.. but they are guaranteed- the cheaper ones have the disclaimer that they may not fit correctly, might have dents etc... too much to risk for me.

    I think the LMC sheet metal is way over priced!!! I have a couple of aftermarket sheet metal dealers around town that sell fenders from 36-60$. Check-out these guys there sheet metal fits: www.absautosupply.com

    Do a search on Chevy/GMC Truck&Van C10/30 73-87

    This company is out of Cleveland Ohio. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I just got my Chevy Duty catalog the other day and the aftermarket fenders are $70, inner fenders are $40, and rears are $200. I dont know about shipping because I havent purchased anything yet. Hope this helped.

    Hey Nate/88K5, I just installed the LMC front floors and rockers. Wasn't too impressed because they were actually made for a pick-up. Required alot more finessing than I wanted. This may be the same for alot of other after-market panels.

    By the way, I'm just over the line from Rindge/Jaffery and work at Devens.
