Reproduction body parts & trim clips

Post by bukweet » Tue Jan 29, 2008 10:07 pm

Can we make this a sticky? It seems I post it at least 20 times a year. Not an endorsment, just a reminder for bumper fillers and other needs for 2drs,4drs, wagons and cars of several makes.

NOTE: Wagons and El Camino rear corner fillers are NOT the same.

They are also NOT interchangable with coupes and sedans.


Add any other web sites to it that fit.

I think it would be a good idea to make a list of vendors that have parts or service's for our cars. I'm still waiting on someone to get their grill re-chromed so we all know where to go.

I picked up a set of fillers front and rear from autobodyfillersusa a few weeks ago and rushed them to the paint shop while car was beng sprayed when I got the car back I realized the backs are not the same as original, not even close actually they are longer and have different contours ? has anyone had any fitment issues on these?

Wagon, coupes and El Caminos have different rear fillers from each other.
Recently noted the Buick/Oldsmobile g body wagon rear corner fillers are different from the Malibu and Pontiac rear corners.

Note about manufacturer of door shells from Goodmark Industries:

We buy them from the manufacturer in Taiwan. Made by CHL. Quality is excellent.

Greg,
Did Goodmark complete the shells for an 81 Malibu? I remember about 5 years ago they were being worked on and then they kind of fell off the map.

Goodmark never completed the tooling process for the doors. They stopped the process to begin tooling of some Cuda parts and never picked it back up. Goodmark Industries only carries the CHL brand doors.

Northland Fastners shows umpteen different rear window moulding clips and each of them is vaguely listed as being for GM 1967 and up or something similar. To make matter worse, they all look very much alike. How do I know which ones are the right ones for my 1981 Malibu?

how do i tell which ones are for the middle bow for a wagon headliner? I know what they look like, they have a wider base than the front and rear, but how do I know from the photos on the website? Anyone bought the middle bow headliner clips for a wagon?

I tried Northland but got no answer, so I went to NAPA and lo and behold I found the clips I was looking for.
(78 Malibu 2dr rear window moulding clips). There are two different ones on the window. The top and sides are metal and should come off in good shape, but the clips across the bottom are plastic and will most likely be junk.
The NAPA Balkamp part number is 665-1120. They come in a box of 14 and not a bad price. Hope this helps
someone. :)

I ordered a pair of fender extensions for a 76 Olds for a friend of mine. He owns a body shop and was doing a resto for a customer and didn't know they were available.
Replica Plastics had them here in 4 days.
He was very pleased with the quality and said they needed only minor prep work.

I hope anyone else that orders from them has the same positive experience.

Anyone have experience with reproduction header panels? I have had some bad experience with reproduction parts and I need a header panel but they are so fragile it seems that the used ones all seem to have a crack or broken part- like mine.
