    Yep. A friend who has a '66 427/425 roadster got a new hood surround from Ecklers and about a year later the paint started to develop pimples. Ecklers said that they got a bad batch from their supplier and the resin didn't fully cure.

    Try ACI.

    Any fiberglass parts sold by the big retailers likely get the parts from ACI and/or shipped to the customer directly from ACI. A large group of CruiseFest 2008 attendees visited their shop and showroom. Overall response was very positive. It's also where I have my body work done.

    FYI... I just found out that ACI only has the hand laid quarters.
