I'm looking to replace my quarter panel and just wondering what is a good after market supplier ?

I know most should be close but I have run into some pretty bad after market body parts that aren't even close to a nice fit. This is the first time I have ever had to replace a quarter panel on this car since I built it back in 2006 and I would like to get it back to looking good again.

The last time I ordered new, I went with Mazda it was not that expensive. The hard part was the labor of drilling out those spot welds. You can also salvage one which again is a good winter project.

Are you doing it yourself?

Body shop is probably going to get a better rate than retail.

As I mentioned on FB, the shipping costs and taxes buying from Mazda Motorsports can make it more expensive than the body shop's price.  I think I paid 150-160 for shipping.

If you have to put in a big order its free shipping after 900.00
