So I bought these "Lower Quarter Panels for 1971 Chargers" on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/QUARTER-PANEL-DODGE-CHARGER-1971-72-NEW_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ42611QQihZ004QQitemZ140155528457QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

I knew it was risky just by looking at the picture! But you gotta be kidding me, these are absolute crap! Not only did they arrive dented to hell because of the packing job but the won't work! People have actually given him a good review on these things! I'll post more horrifying pictures of what they look like when I get home today.

What ever you do "DO NOT BUY FROM Classicparts4u !!!"

Sorry to see this happen. Yes, this was discussed a couple months ago in the general section I believe. I see your a newbie. This board is a terrific source for info that can prevent problems like this.
There is a company now offering quarters for 73/74 Chargers. I modified a pair to fit my 72 Charger, not that difficult.
BTW, welcome to the board.

I bought some floor pans from them seven years ago, was happy with them. They've been advertising 3rd gen quarters for years but when you call they tell you their out of stock. Do a search in the general section. Someone is again producing these quarters and a member just bought a pair.

ANYBODY seen or heard good/bad about these???  I am thinking about trying them, but would prefer to not be the guinea pig, if I can help it.
 OR Does anyone know about the stamped panels on ebay and some resto. parts houses and such?  I assume this is the same thing?Huh

yah, i bought a set still havent put them on yet, have to wait till tax time but the quarters look hell of lot better then those,im very happy with them  there die stamped ,its the same company that has owned the dies for years they just had to find another company to stamp them the stamper quit .and they used another company to stamp same dies though. tabco said it took a while to get the tooling right ,allmost every company use tabco quarters ;did anyone notice they dried up all at the same time no one could get them and then when they started back up everyong has them again .i bought  the passenger side a couple of years ago from a company called mill stamping when i received it I noticed it had a tabco sticker on it and realized i paid a 100 more then ordering it directly from tabco.
