Initially I purchased USA made kick panels and A pillars (1-piece) from a well known parts retailer. They were galvanized or galvaneal or something, looked like good quality parts but I couldn't get anything close, even with a lot of manipulation. So after much frustration I gave up and ordered kick panels and A pillars from another vender and different manufacturer (kickpanels are DC and the A pillars are Dynacorn). What a world of difference, I'm finally getting things close, the second set of parts certainly wasn't perfect but so much better. After attaching the hinge post side of the A pillar to the kickpanel with screws and then fitting the door, the gaps are finally starting to line up. One area that will require manipulation is attaching the A pillar brace. It's too wide to fit inside the outer lip of the A pillar hinge post like it's supposed to so I'm thinking I'll have to trim the outside edge. Im curious if anyone else has had this issue and how they resolved it. Also wanted to post my experience with the USA made parts in case anyone else is about to dive into this project. I did a lot of research on here and elsewhere before buying and didn't see anything specific on the various manufacturers (I totally understand why) other than some comments saying the two piece A pillars were the way to go, and they all need some manipulation to fit properly, both of which are true. Want to be clear that my intention is not to be negative towards any manufacturer or retailer, just want to post some honest feedback that can hopefully help someone avoid what I went through.
