Default Replacement Sheet Metal

I am sure this has been discussed before but I have not been able to find it, where is the best place to get trunk pans, and fender fillers for a 70 GTO. I have used a couple of different companies for past restorations and have had to completely redo them before they would fit properly, Thanks, John

Have used several companies, most recently Ames and GoodMark for floor pans. I have installed many floors in GM cars and have not found any that were real easy to fit. Probably the reason most people job them out to body shops and/or restoration shops. Inner and outer quarter panels are another challenge.

Actually I'm just "old" and been around the block several times. Ex-drag racer, ex-show cars. ex-street rodder, and partners w/Harpoon w/5Star Auto Restorations in Durham-Raleigh, NC market. Have extensive experience w/body and paint and love the 50's and 60's rides.
Love cars!

Thanks, gambler, I understand that most take some work to fit up but I bought a driver side pan for a 67 FB and from where the pan curved up to the firewall back to the relief stamped for the cross member was a full 1" off, those are the problems I would like to avoid. I did not give the name of the company that imported the pan but I do know it. Thanks again, John
