Any experience with Sherman sheetmetal parts?

Jegs has full rear quarters available with free shipping which is a smoking deal. Sherman brand parts based out of Michigan. Any experience with their quality?

Watch the progress on my 66 coupe here,

The real question is what brand? Likely "Sherman" is just a reseller.

Although the person on the phone won't likely know, you could call Jegs and ask anyway. They might be able to find out where the part is actually coming from or at least tell you the actual brand, like Dynacorn or Golden Legion. Again, those are resellers and they don't actually stamp the part, but you'll at least be able to determine quality based on experience from others.

On the other hand, if you call NPD and ask for the best available, they will know and the price is likely to be very competitive.

I had a sherman full quarter for a 68 coupe. I sold it to a buddy and he said the fit was pretty good. He didn't complain about it at all.

Living the dream or running it down... haven't figured out which yet.

Rarely is shipping "free", especially when you're dealing with truck-freight.. They're just building the shipping-cost into the price of the parts, and assuming/hoping you won't notice. This "grift" has gone viral in mail-order marketing over the past couple years.

What I see on their site are quarter panels of likely Taiwanese origin (Golden Legion or Golden Trust). They're charging $159.95 per side. So you're looking at roughly $320.00 for the pair, delivered, and they say they won't even ship until a week from today (which means they aren't stocking the merchandise).

Comparably, we sell Golden Legion 65-66 coupe quarters for $109.95 per side, and charge $120 for truck-freight to Indiana. So roughly $340.00 for the pair, delivered, and you know the actual manufacturer of the quarter, and you're not waiting an additional week for them, and if you've got problems, you're not triangulated between a large vendor (Jegs) and a drop-ship-distributor (Sherman). And if you needed any additional parts, they could all be packed-in with the quarters so they'd ride for free, which truly IS the essence of "free shipping".

Anyhow, point being, the shipping isn't free. It's just front-loaded. Don't let marketing-schemes fool you.
