This may be a stupid question but how much are those quarters?  I went to their website but there are no prices listed. 

Call and talk to Ron. He is a great guy and will work with you. I waited for a year for the AMD quarters and all they tell me is I am on the list. Ron had them and was willing to make me a decent deal. In my opinion they are way nicer than the AMD panels. Plus they are designed, stamped and sold in AMERICA. That should mean something.

How can they be nicer than the AMD 1/4 panels when the AMD panels arent out yet?  shruggy

They are out and people have installed them. You just have to be on the waiting list.

I see , I did not realize that. shruggy Sorry I stepped in it, in that case.  icon_smile_blackeye

The differences in the repro versus original sheetmetal for these cars have at least as much to do with the steel quality as the thickness.  The crap Asian repro steel we get nowadays can be just as thick as the original stuff and still not feel as stiff & heavy as it should.

Not sure if that is correct!! Rear quarters has expected arrival 30th of may, according to AMD, and what we have seen on pictures so far is test fit. They are the same gauge (18) as RonŽs .
As for bad Asian metal................you get what you ask for. They build oilriigs over there!!!!

So they told me at AMD. They told me that all their parts were made of same gauge metal as the OEM parts. I see no reason why they areŽnt. Would be kinda stupid to loose a bunch of customers, trying to save 2 dollars on a part!!! The reason they have been delayed, is that they do a lot of testfitting, and the nessasary corrections, to ensure good quality when they hit the market. I wouldŽnt hesitate to buy a set of Ron, if the AMD quarters were not right. I still have my car sitting in US, filling up my buddys garage with parts, so i have time to do that choise when both of them are out. I have ordered a LOT of parts from AMD, incl 2 sets of rear 1/4Žs. Looking forward to see how they are, but i have faith in their quality. If i am wrong, iŽll call Ron.

I guess I'll wait to see what they're like also.  I like the fact that the AMD quarters will be E-coated.  The backsides will have some extra protection already.
