I bought 1966 coupe that included the following reproduction sheet metal: 2 fenders, 2 door shells, 2 full quarter panel assy., frt and rear valences, and tail light panel. All is from National Parts Depot. I've used these guys on a past project, but no rep. metal. I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with their panels. How well do they fit? What do I have to look forward to? Thank you in advance.

I have bought valances and stone guards from NPD and they all fit pretty good. With repro fenders on my '66 (not purchased at NPD), I learned the hard way that any major body panels need to be Ford originals
i used 2 of their full quaters on my 66 coupe and their rear valance and their full floor pans and seat platforms. you are going to have to fight with the stuff to make it fit.
but thats the same with all repro stuff.
My experience with NPD repo fender was bad but that fender was bought maybe 5-7 years ago so may be out of date. I had to cut mounted nuts and re weld them in to match the headlight bucket and the door jam bracket, the front was 1/4" too wide, and the area behind the front wheel well was not shaped the same as original Ford. NPD was selling that particular cheap since it had minor freight damage, which was the easiest part to fix.
Every day driving a vintage Mustang is a great day.
