I’ve definitely noticed parts avatar to be a great source when looking but they have 0 body stuff in stock for these trucks unless you count radiator core support body mounts. But I guess that’s just life in Canada. We treat china and taiwans trade market better than our own neighbours. As unreasonably priced as it may be for shipping I’ll probably decide to get salvage from my southern parts guy and support a hard working family man who buys obs chevys to strip and send to guys like us in his spare time and he’s an all around great guy if you can be patient as he only gets so much time. Far better than already over paying for inferior product. Might buy the cheap-ish ones for my spare cab cause it’s practice and part of being good is working with things like thatHonestly, the fitment on the different body pieces I've bought has been middling at best. Everything needed a little tweaking and massaging to get it all to fit, but that's expected with the Taiwanese molds.
The best luck I've had is with OEM donor pieces from the spare parts trucks, and making my own if needed.
I've got body parts from partshub.ca and from classictruck.ca. both roughly equal in quality, since I believe they're just two different distributors for KeyParts branded body panels. You can also get the panels from rockauto, and sell your firstborn son to pay the shipping.
Anything I can find on PartsAvatar, I get from them because any order over $75 they ship for free and they carry basically the same quality of aftermarket stuff as rockauto.
