Default Sherman body pieces..

I'm doing some work on a car and someone recommended Sherman or Goodmark

I was looking on Sherman's site and they have a link to Greatlakes 4x4.com

Do we get any discounts or is it just an advertising spot?

I'm liking that they are Michigan based and will research it more but If they have what I need I'll probably get from them.

I've used Sherman parts before and know many other guys who have used them. Very happy with the quality for the price. Plus being in Michigan is a plus too.

OCC students get a 25% discount with the school's account #. Most everything they sell are chinese aftermarket, but now a days, what isn't? I've bought rockers, quarter patch panels, a hood and fender through 'em. All good stuff. I think they're up at 23 mile and Van Dyke or somethin around there.

Make a call to their purchasing dept., can't hurt to find out if you can get a GL discount.

I've heard that sherman's buys all the old dies from factory's so their parts have better fitment then a lot of others. That could be wrong but it's what i have heard. I bought a fender for my truck a couple years ago from them and it hasn't started rusting yet so that's a plus.

They are located at 28 mile and van dyke.

In the past, about 5 + years ago on back, ive bought YJ, XJ fenders, XJ rockers, header panel, CJ windshield frame and CJ patch panels and have had no issues or rust problems. Good prep work helps.

I personally prefer Keystone parts over Sherman. They fit better for about the same price and they don't come with dings, dents and scratches that Sherman parts do

Yeah... I don't know about keystone, but the last few items I got from Sherman looked like they played catch with them. The last time I went the woman behind the counter wouldn't give me a core support at the dealer I worked for at the time's price. She wanted to charge me damn near 25% more.

I told her my opinion and left. Never been back. Too many other suppliers out there.

I have had great customer service at Trojan, but the parts are of a lesser quality.

I'm looking for some quarter panels but I might just buy a donor body shell if I have to, I don't want to block sand quarter panels up the ass just to get it right. I won't even ask for a roof, that's something I'll need to think up if I have to replace it.

Goodmark has great parts--cant say I've used Sherman. Of course saving the money on shipping counts for something as well. I usually but Mustang parts from NPD over Year One or the Paddock for that reason alone when buying oversized body panels.

I've used Sherman on several occasions. We used them for floorpans on a 70 Cuda, floorpans, door patchs, and rear quarters for a 67 Fairlane, and a bedside lower patch on a S10. Most of the stuff lined up ok. The Fairlane stuff required a bit of "massaging" to get it to line up, but between the body being torqued to all hell and "manufacturing differences" it was good.

For what it's worth, when I worked at Murray's, and we'd order body stuff out of the Keystone catalog, most of the time it came in a Sherman box.

Thanks for the input. I guess right now its up in the air for either goodmark and possibly NPD. I don't know NPD's quality yet so i'm trying to find that.

this is for a 72 camaro. I just want stuff thats not going to take hours of massaging to get to fit. I know everything is going to need some.

I've always been happy with anything I got from NPD--guys are pretty good over their as well. Good customer service with the one issue I did have.

Its like Christmas in Feb.

NICE

Dont forget to paint the insides and use a good seam sealer on welded areas. Great to see a 72 get saved-- best looking Camaros next to the 60s
