Classic Industries

Has anyone ordered any parts from Classicindustries, I found a set of door panels from there that are fare in price, was wondering if someone has and if the parts fit to specs. and what cutomer service is like. I have heard more bad things about LMC than good, the price is 60 bucks cheaper then LMC for the same part. As far as bone yard parts they are hard to find in good condition, if any at all here anyway. I know I can interchange with many different panels, but I want to keep the 83 look, passanger side is a lot worst the drivers side but both are now becoming brittle to the touch...


any insight would be helpful.

Re: Classic Industries

Re: Classic Industries

I've looked at Classic Industries to make an order, then compared the same list with LMC. I went with LMC for price, recommendations by friends, and I like their web page. As for customer service, I've used their tech. support as well as customer support when I ordered a handful of wrong parts. I just re-read my post, and I really didn't answer any part of your question. Sorry man, I've just had great experiences with LMC for my '72 and the S-10. Later.

Re: Classic Industries

Hey Alex, sometimes you can order black plastic for a few buck less than painted pieces. On my A-arm gauge column, it came black and I ordered the dark red paint in a can. It turned out perfect. No one believes I sprayed it. Just an ideeer. Later.

Re: Classic Industries

Hey, I just thought of something. If you remove the door panels, would you please
snap a few photos of the process? I have door from an '89 and '87, manual and electric, and both doors are missing some small clips and screws for the inside handles and locks. Thanks man.

Re: Classic Industries

One thing I have found between the two is Prices.. I look up each item seperately on each place, I've found many times that even with shipping cost it pays to buy part order from one house and the other part from the other and saved money....

Re: Classic Industries

Will do, in fact I'll let you know when I'm doing it so you can tell what you are looking for, I have 3 side jobs lined up here in the next couple of weeks, so I will also be replacing the inner and outer window seals, hopefully I can get them around the same time to do them all in one shot, if not might be doing it twice.
Bagged I think that is the way i'm going to end up ordering these parts, form both to save some money.

Re: Classic Industries

What about dying them? I saw something on TV where they did an old car & it turned out good. The dash was cracked & they fixed that too.
Sounds cost effective.
