Not just sheet metal, bought from. But car dropped off and installed.
Thinking even with the so called new bodies, available. How could it be more $ to just have them fix what ever?
If you had a old body stripped, and dipped some was good, some is not. What would the worse that it could be $ wise?

They have an estimator on their web site, I am thinking about using them on a 1970 Dart project I have.

PM moparmojo. Don’t know if he gets on here much but I’m guessing your asking bc you may use them for your challenger convertible? He just had his 70 challenger convertible done there also. And it was really rusty.
Pm your email or if you have Facebook and I can get you in touch with him

I'd use them in a heartbeat ... if they weren't so far away!! It would cost me twice the price of doing the car to take it to them then pick it up when done.

If you did any sort of research you'd know that the AMD Installation Center is just a shop that gets AMD's blessing to install their parts. They have nothing to do with the manufacture of the parts.

You might also consider calling US Car Tool. They do AMD panel replacement and are in the same neck of the woods.

if you had first hand experience yourself with dealing with their so called install experts that work at the installation
center
you might have a clue about what i'm talking about.

This would indicate that you don't know what their work is like - but at some point you asked for parts advice and didn't get the help you wanted.

I have worked directly with them and there isn't anybody better. They did my totaled 1970 Cuda convertible. Honest great people doing fantastic work. Craig, Bill, and their team are the best there is.

I have documented with pictures my entire experience online at moparconnectionmagazine.com or just go on this site under forums to it. It is under the "Comeback Cuda" project. Here is the link http://moparconnectionmagazine.com/galle...-comeback-cuda/


Their estimater really works well to find out what you are in for cost wise. They do it by part not hours. Example: Floor pan. It will show you what the pan costs and how much is the labor to install it.

I have "ZERO" complaints and their work on my car was beyond good. It was "GREAT"!!!!!!!

I have a friend that has a Superbird there right now, getting the metal work done. He has been down several times to look at the progress, and is pleased with their work. And he is a PICKY rascal when it comes to quality of work.....not that that's a bad thing. up

A member on another Mopar board (forabodiesonly) shipped his Demon from Virginia to the Georgia Install Center. The car needed a full floor, trunk, both quarter panels, and the entire tail light panel. The work was completed on time, and was top notch. This work was completed approximately 4 years ago, and the prices were better than local restoration shops quoted in the Mid Atlantic. Overall, the Demon owner was very happy with the price and the quality of the work.

Like you, I have all the panels. So I did two things ... 1) did an online estimate of their labor only and 2) called and asked "what if I already have all the panels". Well I think the answer is obvious but they said they would charge a little more because they do make money from the sale of the parts. They sent me a quote and the added cost was nothing to complain about. Like I said previously, if they weren't so far away I'd take my car there. Four days round trip each time is a lot of $$.
