Here is something for you to do. Call & ask them where the parts are made.

The awnser you hear will not be "why they are made in the USA".
I asked them a while back( they told me that the parts for the bonne were made in the states), sounded legit & ordered something. Got it here & had a "MADE IN CHINA" sticker on it( last time I checked they dont have bnneville'* in China). They also have production shops in Mexico.
Before you order parts from a internet site. ALWAYS call & ask where they are made & assembeled.

Remember just because they have good prices doesnt mean they are good quality. So the engines have warranty. Ok, thats good. BUT how many times do you fell like pulling it out, because of inferior craftsmanship?

Also remember. They are OE SPEC not OE . There is a BIG difference.

Does it really matter where the parts are made if I'm just getting replacement body parts?

hell yeah it does. Fit & finish will not even be close to factory.

You get what you pay for. It'* your money.

Would you rather get parts from a company that actually pays their workers great pay, benefits, ect.. & has the right castings, & the cash actually goes to OUR economy, or. Get parts from a place that has never even seen the car, gets paid the equivelent of about .60 cets an hour, dont care about their jobs because its a horrible palce to work & have half *** casting((PLUS materials such as sheetmetal, fiberglass, ect..) bought by the lowest bidder.

Would you get body panels made by Ford to fit a Pontiac....no. Same concept.

Once you need to replace somnething it will not have a factory feel again. As for the other stuff it is all hearsay. You have no idea how good they pay or their work ethics. You might hear that they are only getting paid 3 dollars an hour, but dfid you ever sit down and translate that into their currency. The only things you are getting this from is from something you saw or probably read. Which no matter what are going to be biased. But if you are going to carry it to that extent because it had "made in China" sticker. Then I suggest you call them and find out where their steel is coming form even if it is made in the U.*. There is such a war on imported steel you can still be supporting other countries. Also I take it you hate the Twin Towers, because they were made from imported steel not steel that was fabricated in the U.*.

LOL.. I wont even respond to this. I have been there & seen these "parts houses".

I kinda expected this response from a bunch of people that use the word "ricer" so much. Just plain ignorance..simple as that. I dont expect you all to be frugal with your money.( Much rather spend it on ugly *** rims then quality parts)

Once most of you are old enough to know how the system works & actually move out of your parents houses into the real world & have a life & go see other countries. Then you will understand, until then. Have a nice day.

Buy what you like. I buy OE bodyparts, I'm not cheap. If it'* Ford I buy ford, Toyota I buy Toyota.
Buy then again I only apply with $3-7K paint jobs, My customers do not want anything less then OE( unless its custom, then I make it myself).
About the comments with the twin towers..I wont even touch that. You have no F**KING clue what I went through with that.



Please ban me from this site. This is the 2nd time i've asked. I'm sure they will agree now. I hate arguing with people who were not even born when I started my career in the automotive field.

Thank you drive through.
