Holy smokes!  I sent my lower rear interior quarter panels to Larry Zobeck based on recommendations for other threads...his work is absolutely amazing!  I just got them back yesterday and went straight to work getting them installed last night (definitely a late night  Grin). 

Honestly, Larry's work is second to none.  The overall quality and fit/finish is well beyond my expectations!  Please see the 2 pics below.





Thanks Larry!  Chug a Lug

Those look great.
Were your pieces in overall good shape to begin with, they just needed to look fresh again?

Great question.  Both panels were covered with scratches - the driver's side had a huge scratch from the folding seat coming down at come point.  And, the passenger side had been chipped, and someone tried to fill it with black silicone.  It was so bad that even Larry texted me and said, "Boy, this side is bad!"   Grin  Here's a pic of the passenger side before the restoration:

 

The overall finish now is amazing, especially the paint.  You couldn't get this type of results with a rattle can, that's for sure!

Thanks!  Chug a Lug

I had similar results on seat backs. Now it is going to be my sail panels.

I shipped my 2 '68 panels to Larry a week or so ago to fix the 4" diameter speaker holes.  Larry assured me he could do it.  I will be driving to Michigan labor day weekend so will be picking them up from him at that time.  I am thrilled to hear about your experience, it gives me more faith that my panels will look great.  Someone asked me a few weeks ago on a similar thread how much it costs.  Larry is charging me $150 per panel which seemed very fair to me.

Shipping is the killer on stuff like this.

Tip; Nick has a great source of more cost efficient shipping. I will let him share since it is definitely his find.

Larry Zobeck, 586-904-0007.  I told Larry he will probably be seeing more of these panels.

I would definitely like to know more about the cheaper shipping because you are correct that was not cheap.  Luckily I am heading to Michigan Labor day weekend so I save on return shipping.
