Anyone use Classic 2 Current Body Panels? USA Made?
 
Anyone use these guys for body panels?

http://c2cfabrication.com/store/index.php?cPath=1_21_63&sort=4a&page=1

They claim Made in USA parts and the prices look good.

Thanks!

I was actually looking at these panels the other day. I hope someone chimes in

Man, they do have some good prices. I may have to call them and find out if ALL their products are made in Detroit. I am skeptical since they have a CJ windshield. If it is made in the US, I may buy it to check it out.

Bought some XJ Cherokee replacement rocker panels from C2C fab. Properly stamped parts, enough extra material at the ends for fitting, and reasonably thick sheet metal. I would buy more stuff from them.

Reading the "about us", it seems they do make all their parts. And it's great to still be able to get quality parts out of the Motor City, especially for me lol. 16 miles from their door to Woodward and Jefferson.
Really good guys. I havn't bought from them yet, but when I was pricing out floor pans I had some questions about if all the holes were already cut. Sent them an e-mail and received a reply in 1/2 hour. No holes, just the pans but that's no biggie. Either way, they were extremly helpful to me.
And yeah their pricing is excellent!


Be nice to have them as a Vendor on the site.

I actually ordered a couple of rear wheel houses from them and they were Okay. The gauge of the metal was good but I actually had to split them down the middle and re weld them because they were about 3/4" too wide. I wound up just buying them from Classic Enterprises and the fit was perfect. I have a really hard time believing that they have the dies to stamp their own windshields and fenders. If that were so, we would certainly know a lot more about them since omix and crown corner the market on those parts.

How about everyone donates a few dollars and I will :rofl:. I sent them an email asking a few questions.

Part of me is thinking, "Did I ever waste a perfectly good Benjamin on something useless/illegal/stupid/dangerous or harmful before?". Oh hells yeah! Keep me in the loop. I'm willing to try one, if ya get a good vibe.

The pictures of the windshield frames look different. These are the best I can get.
The top is C2C
The bottom is crown.

Bojon 04-21-2012 07:34 PM

It looks like it only has one rib instead of two. Are there any other companies making it with one?

VACJ7 04-21-2012 08:51 PM

Some interesting info from their web site:

The parts listed on our website are partial, slip-on or rust repair panels; not complete OEM style parts. These parts are manufactured using many machine processes and are made using at least 20 gauge coated automotive steel; although all floor pans, trunk pans and inner rocker panels are made from 18 gauge for extra durability.

We are the only source for most of what is listed on our site, and we guarantee the satisfaction of the fitting with minimum professional alterations. If you need any parts that we do not currently list, feel free to contact us and we'll see about making the part that you need. Please note that we would need the original body part or a template of it.

AND

Classic 2 Current Fabrication offers a 30 day warranty on all of the parts that we manufacture. These parts are not original replacement parts. What we manufacture are partial replacement panels that are widely used in the auto body repair business today.

I sent them an email. I'm guessing items like the complete fenders and windshield are not theirs.

It appears you are right about the fenders and windshield.

Both items are made overseas to OEM standards and we've sold several thousand of each every year with minimum to no complaints. Because both are made on similar dies as the originals, they are also made to the same specs and thickness as the originals were as well.

I bought a set of floor pans about a month ago from C2C but I'm not at the point of installing them yet. They seem to lay in ok and look as if they'll work out fine, but they're somewhat crude looking... the bends are apparently done with a braking process with relief cuts made at the bend points on the sides, which means they're not contured around the edges like the original floor. The metal thickness is very good. I'm not at all dissapointed in them for the price. Function-wise they will be ok, but if you're wanting the OEM conture be prepared to do a lot of metal-crafting or else you might want to consider another product - at a much higher price I might add.

I got the same response. I did go a bit deeper and discovered that the windshield they have listed is manufactured by a Taiwanese company called Cobra King (http://www.cobraking.com.tw/index.html). I asked if the picture of the windshield was accurate because it did not have the typical 2 ribs from say Crown or OMIX. They said the pic was supplied by the manufacturer and believed it to be accurate. Just FYI....
