New Door Panels
 
Bringing this conversation back up. I bought a pair of door panels from LMC and they cracked. Need a new set and dont want to break the bank. Looking for a set of grey stock looking panels. Best panels for the price.

I am considering these

not to push my own thread but i have a set of charcoal grey panels for sale out of my 87 pickup. no cracks and original OEM. They are in really good condition. just may need to be touched up with some SEM paint.

Will 87 panels fit a 79?

Shot you a pm. Not really sure on that. Definitely a different style though. Maybe somebody else has some experience and can let us know.

I had a set, and loved the them . For the money, about $200 or so from rockauto, I couldnt have been more pleased. Keep in mind they are not OEM, and wont have the look or feel of such...

Anyone know the answer to this? There is a nice set of door panels at my local junk yard from a 85 Suburban that I would like to get. My 79 door panels are pretty chalky.

The doors I am not sure are the same from 73-80 - 81+ I know the older 73-80s had Thicker metal & Glass... not sure on the other parts.

USA1... best ones out there they Make everything In-house, unlike LMC/Bothers trucks/Classis Industries they are all 3rd Party & Share every component from each other's warehouses. How I know? I asked The Reps

I'm a purist so my ideas are a little jaded... Okay they're a lot jaded. I would look for a set of used 77-80 panels and dye/paint them whatever color you need. I believe the 79 Sport truck would have the Scottsdale trim. http://brochures.slosh.com/pdfs/1979...%20Pickups.pdf

I found these on USA1 site.

I also find some very pricey ones for a silverado. I am looking for my scottsdale. Are these any good?

thanks
Chris

I saw the USA1 panels at a show in the Fall and talked with one of the owners . Very nice products and as has been said , they make their parts in North Carolina . Their dash pads are exceptional too.

Depends how picky you are. No one makes a good reproduction door panels yet for ‘73-80.I’d try to find original door panels and dye them. Way better than anything made right now.
