    Surprisingly they still need quite bit of filler, and the spot-welded seams. I think a lot of cast-off production parts got sent to the parts division.
    In the meantime, keep everyone updated on your over the top Vette.

    I bought a new GM fender for my 74 Z28 in the mid 80s it fit like a saddle on a sow. I think you are right about rejects sold as service parts.

    Sounds like NOS sheet metal is a bit rough! LOL

    I depends on the application the best fitting replacement I ever installed was a aftermarket one for a 2005 Impala, not one shim and perfect lines. My new doors on my 55 were decent fitting also, I have seen the opposite result many times.
