Default Lmc truck

I have come across some photos online of people unhappy with the quality of body panels purchased from lmc truck. Does anyone have experience with the company and could you recommend whether or not their 60-66 parts are worth using or would it be better to seek alternatives or fabricate my own patch panels.

i have used lmc parts for a couple trucks. front fenders are usable. the doors i got were bad, not the right shape. bought doors from another vender, came in the same boxes and did not fit any better. you would have to cut and weld to make work. lmc doesnt make doors, they all come from china.

Not sure if you mean patch panels or full fenders/hoods/etc. As ilvracn said, chances are, all are from the same "The Beijing Peoples Republic Parts Factory". Same parts, different USA vendor. Will need tweaked now and then. It's part of the "hobby" to learn how to make it fit. Patch panel repair technique is a large conversation.

Every vendor who sells 40's-60's sheet metal will have complaints about "their" parts. The parts are getting better. The truck gets tweaked/twisted by the road and by previous repairs, the parts get tweaked buy tight packing across the ocean on a ship, then "handled" by many wholesalers, suppliers and vendors hands and we have to re-tweak or untweak them. It's fun. Kind of.
