Anyone have experience with reproduction header panels? I have had some bad experience with reproduction parts and I need a header panel but they are so fragile it seems that the used ones all seem to have a crack or broken part- like mine.


Not specifically with the ones for our cars, but I have had the (mis)fortune of dealing with them on customer cars (collision shop).

If you just need something there, they're not bad, but they are not as "clean" as the OEM pieces, and typically the bracketry is considerably lighter than the OE stuff. They also often arrive damaged.

IMO, keep shopping for a good used OEM piece. They seem to turn up in the classifieds pretty regularly here on the site.

Never had much luck with A/M parts always went OEM or used. Keystone industries bought goodmark witch is owned by LKQ inc. I have a good supply of OEM hardware that I haved saved for many years.
