    Have you used them? I know I read a thread that talked about the C2C panels being poor quality, but this seems to be a different company.

    The panel in the photo does seem to match the contours of the car. Some of the C2C panels don't even look close to what they are supposed to be.

    I checked C2C's website and they don't show quarters for '65-'66 full size Dodge, so they must be made by someone else.

    I would certainly say that the panel in the photo should be better than making your own from scratch. Of course a good used one would be best, but by the time you factor in shipping, you'd be close to two grand for a quarter from out west these days.

    If no one chimes in with experience, then maybe you can be our test subject and give them a try. If they are decent, there's plenty of people here that could use a set on their cars.

    I checked the NOR/AM website for other C body quarter panels, and the rest of them look a lot like the crummy C2C stuff.

    I bought a set for my '70 Fury before I knew better. I used them to make patch panels. The wheel well contour was not even close.

    I’d be glad to if I knew they would work. Since no one would want to bankroll my experiment, I doubt I’ll be the Ginny pig

    I am chiming in with experience. Garbage.

    Thanks Ross. Were they poorly shaped? Just curious because looking at the picture, it looks promising.

    Unfortunately there are no quality reproduction panels for C bodies of any year. None. Not one stamped panel available on the planet for any C body.
    The hand formed lower quarter panel you are asking about is not worth bothering with. Very crude

    Profiles were all wrong, and the metal was thin.

    So frustrating that they make you think that something will work and then you have to dole out money to find out it’s a huge pile of shit

    I was lucky - I got a full refund.
