Restoration / 1968 Convertible Quarter Panel Questions
« on: July 25, 2016, 04:27:35 PM »
I've got a 68 L78 convertible that I've owned for the last 30 years. Before I got it, someone did the body and put patch panels on it with lots of filler. At the time I was 18 and didn't care. The car has been parked for the last 20 years.

But now I would like to get the car redone properly with full panels.
I do have a complete brand new NOS front clip (less hood) that I bought at GM over the years before it was all discontinued.

What's the best panels to get now? I've looked for NOS, but can only find coupes available.

From what I'm reading, AMD is the best manufacturer of sheet metal, but they only produce hardtop.
The convertible panel is the X-Line which is not made by them, so they are probably Goodmark or Dynacorn supplied.

I can get Goodmark panels through work, but I don't know how good the quality is on them.

All the posts I find about quality issues and the best panels are all years old, and everyone has different opinions.
Has anyone put these panels on a convertible, and if so, what was the fit like?

Would I be safe going with Goodmark over Dynacorn?

As a last resort, my only other option is to pick up a set of NOS coupe panels and cut the sails off.

Any advice appreciated

Thanks
