    I just got an e-mail that Chevy Duty is having a sale of 10% off. So I really want to take advantage of this since I am getting ready to order a ton of body and related parts. And I need to know if these guys have quality parts.

    I kinda worries me that the fenders are only $70. I don't think I want cheap tiwan fenders that don't fit. The fenders are the only pieces I am really worried about. I have heard good things about Chevy Duty, but I want to know if anyone hear has dealt with them first hand and how good the quality is on their body parts.

    Their stuff is top notch, but IIRC the are called Classic parts now, but everything ive ordered was good stuff, better than LMC IMO.

    they are now classic parts. I just placed an order with em and was highly disappointed with em. the parts were very poor quality. But i have placed orders with em previously and it was never as bad

    i got new sideview mirrors ( used 75% of my old ones) The straps for the door pulls were junk, the holes were mismatched. And the covers for the straps on one of em had broke off tab, and one was scratched to hell... but every other order ive made stuff has been good? :confused:

    I think the straps have funky holes from the factory.

    I'm not really worried about the smaller details like interior straps. I need mainly sheet metal and a few other parts.

    there was a post a while back on ordering sheetmetal from LMC and Chevy Duty. I cant remember what the general consensus was.

    Basically, you get what you pay for.

    I think there are two or three different grades of parts: Factory Replacement, Domestic Reproduction and Imported Reproduction.

    The more it costs, the better it will fit and the less :hack::grind: you will have to do. How good it looks depends on how much you want to spend (both in time and money).

    yeah I know, but my problem is time. I would like to find original used front fenders but in my area they are a little hard to find rust free. So I think I will just replace them with repros

    call Certi-fit!!

    I'd call Certi-Fit in Randolph MA,and get prices from them--they might sell only to distributors like parts stores ,and direct to body shops though..my friend has a catolog and an account there..If I remember right,fenders for a 73-87 truck weren't much more than 50 bucks each..

    A place anyone can buy from is R.C. Truck in Brockton ,on the West Bridgewater/Brockton MA line..I get a lot of stuff there,cheap money, and as good as any other place is,as far as quality..they sell gas tanks ,sending units,springs,shackles,u-bolts,starters and alternators,brake parts,body panels like rockers and cab corners,floors,weatherstripping,etc..:crazy:
