Almost all of our C5 Corvette body panels come from Corvettes that have had a body conversion done to them. This means that most of these cars are low mileage Corvettes as these conversions can be quite expensive, because they are not wrecked we are able to provide you with the highest quality bolt-on ready body panels possible. This way you will not wind up paying for paint work and you will not have re-painted panels on your car. If they are cracked or damaged we do not sell them here (they may be found occasionally at our eBay Store).
We have sold several hundred body panels, both C5 and C6 and we have only had one complaint about a slight difference in color. When GM paints these panels they are not painted as a complete body and so the colors must be accurate and the same from car to car.
It is well known that when you order a large fragile item such as Corvette body panels from most recyclers you often receive them damaged. We have gone to great lengths to protect our body panels during shipping. We have custom boxes for all of our Corvette panels, and they are all packaged with a foam in place system to insure that they will arrive to you with out being damaged.
