    What about dynacorn parts and golden star? To know which brands are the best is a very confusing issue. Our we sure their not all made in the same overseas factor and just labeled differently?! Lol.

    I agree with the above post. Most likely all built in the same plant with different labels.

    i suspect they are i know years ago alot of auto manufacturers sold their old dies when they updated models which created fitment problems when aftermarket companies made parts with them.i remember using comealong to pull down fender on my brothers pickup but it only cost 60 bucks lol i also had fitment problems with some of the sheetmetal i bought got most from tamraz on ebay all asian the rear filler between decklid and rear window was from company that went out of business it fit nice if you can get used oem or nos you will have less fitment problems but spend time on fixing rust be aware just because parts are new or look rust free there are place on all parts that need attention to avoid future rust thru fender braces from factory and aftermarket are not fully coated i found out when i had issues with fitment and removed originals to use on aftermarket skin i imagine that is why all camaros have that rust thru issue on bottom of fenders relizing that i have spent alot of time on all other panels on my build boy that was long winded hope it helps

    I bought AMD quarters, outer wheelhouses, tail panel, crossrail, and RH fender and they are awesome. I hardly had to do any tweaking on the LH qtr.

    Wish mine looked that good. I got crap from Camaro central and the door vent was about 1/2" too low on one. The outer wheel wells didn't fit correctly either.
