Aftermarket body panels

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here used those after market body panels, you know, the ones probably from Malaysia or Thailand or something that come in the cardboard with the blue/red lettering? 

 

When I bought my B210, the previous owner had a hood and a front left fender to go with it. Curious if I should bother with it, or just have the body guy fabricate/repair as he goes.

Yeah, I did on my 620.

Front fenders.

One wasn't too bad, requiring a few bolt holes to be elongated.

The other had to have spot welds cut, and re-welded.

They were way off !

 

But in the end, it was far easier than trying to save the mangled originals.

I would compare them and see....

Not really sure if its rust or dents your looking to fix, But If they dont fit that well you could atleast give them to the body shop to chop up for the repairs....
