I sent a set of fiberglass 1961 Chevrolet VFN front and rear lower valance panels to Sweden to a friend. I did not hear any complaints.

Got a deck lid and a rear bumper from VFN yesterday and there ok. Haven’t checked the fit yet on the deck lid because right now I can’t aford to have it painted. The front end on this car is VFN and it looks great “now” I’ll post some pictures when i get a chance. Fiberglass parts are only as good as your molds and if you don’t work on them periodically they go to crap. Harwood performance has the best quality fiberglass out there. If your car is black all you have to do is mount the part and lightly buff it. Done! It’s a shame they don’t make parts for our cars.

Back in post #9 there is a picture of my Nova with a VFN front end on it, on a scale of 1-10 the fit was an strong 8 and the finish was a 8. As with all fiberglass it depends on how good the mold is and all fiberglass has to have work done on the finish, all in all I was pleased with my VFN front end. The biggest part of installing my front end was getting it mocked up on the car so I could glue the hood to the front end as I made it a one piece tilt nose.

It was one piece except for the hood, it was a separate piece. I thought you wanted some feed back on VFN's quality, not sure though on a 63 deck lid.
No ........thank you......!!!!!........I did ask about quality also....... so your input makes a difference thank you....... so then do you just glass the hood to the fenders .......?????
