Body repair panels made in the USA

Guys,
We all know how hard it is to find replacement parts especially those that are made in the USA and to exact factory specifications.

When a company goes to the trouble to become a legitimate authorized dealer, that tells a lot about their integrity IMO. With this in mind, I'd like to keep this thread alive so members here get used to the fact that this company is out there and with reasonable prices. I for one would sure hate to lose them as a supplier. Perhaps the admins can contact them and offer them a sweet deal to become a supplier. I didn't find them listed.

Please consider using them if you need body panel replacement parts. I personally have not ordered anything from them yet, but I plan on it real soon. If anyone has used them, please share your experience good or bad.

These are the vendors our shrinking supply of replacement parts cannot afford to lose.

I purchased 2 wheelhouse baffles for my cj7 from them and the quality was impressive. heavy gauge american steel and fit was perfect. Shipping was a little slow but in the end when I finally recieved them I found they were worth the wait. I will definitly do more business with them in the future and highly recommend them.

Bio,

I considered using Classic panels on a few of my repairs, but chose to fab them myself since they weren't large areas. I like the fact they use 18 ga. sheet metal, instead of the thinner China made stuff.

Please give us your review of their products, when you get something from them.

Matt

I have saved their website in my favorites. I will pass it onto a buddy that will be looking to replace some body panels on his 7.

I just got some of their floor panels a couple weeks back. Haven't used them yet but they look real good. They are also the only place I've seen to buy the body supports and rails at. Any body part I can't make will come from them.

Hey Renegade82,

Are my eyes going bad, or did they skip the drain holes on those floor pans?

I think the eyes are failing you. I see at least two drain plug holes

Their website says they use 18 ga., which is what the entire CJ tub is made from.

That said, I used 16 ga. on my repairs because the extra thickness helped compensate for my novice welding skills...less blow thru.

Yeah, I think those are 2 seat mounting holes that you can see. It appears they've chosen to omit the drain holes.

It's certainly not a big deal to drill them, just another step.

Gives you an option to "customize" your floor pans with drilling drain holes wherever you want

I have used them on some panels for my 2a. Top quality stuff. Perfect fit out of the box, which is more than I can say for some of the MD Juan crap I have ordered.

I will be using classic enterprise again for sheetmetal !

I ordered the underbody braces from them. They were excellent quality. The parts took a while to arrive. They shipped us post office, so I blame them, not classic.

Kind of... the 2 holes you can see are the ones under the seat area which is the high point of the floor, but they left out the ones in the areas where your feet go, front and back. Guess that gives you the choice of where and if you want them.

Actually, now that I look at a pic of the old floor, those are for the seat mounting nut locations, so yes, all drain holes were omitted.
