Source for replacement floor panels

Anyone know of a good source for rust repair panels in Alberta, or a Canadian mail-order outfit for that matter? I'm looking to replace almost the entire floor in my '62 uni (pans, lower door pillars, steps, cab mounts, etc.). I've been considering purchasing them through Carolina Classics but the floor pans constitute an oversize package and therefore can only be sent UPS. I'd like to avoid paying extra brokerage fees on top of the already pricey shipping.

Missed the Red Deer swap meet ?

There were vendors there.

I'll check my Business Cards as there was a Dennis Carpenter Parts rep there.

I did miss it, unfortunately. I was in the middle of moving from Saskatchewan at the time!

Just so you know, You don't need to use the quote in a 2-way conversation.
I know you were replying to me


My Dad's wife drives me nuts ALWAYS repeating every thing I say when on the phone before answering.

I'm still looking for the cards.

Carolina Classics MAKES them so you are pretty much gonna have to order from them.

They mailed mine you just have to talk nicely to them. On the phone.

DC doesn't even list them.

Ringo,

I'm leaning towards CC since they have everything I need but I'm just wondering if there are other options. I have looked into NPD and LMC Truck as well. NPD doesn't carry the lower door pillars I need though.

What did you pay for shipping?

Can't remember... it was in the 20-$30 dollar range 3 years ago.
It was his slow time of year and he was selling on ebay. He wasn't even going to shiip them at all to Canada, until I mentioned I was a member of the Slick60's. Then he begrudgingly agreed to mail them.
Mac's parts wouldn't even deal with Canadians at all. They are right off my Xmas card list now

These parts houses don't like to mail things because they have to go down to the post office, as opposed to UPS just picking it it up. They don't understand the whole scam UPS and Fedex have going in Canada with this outrageous "Brokerage fees" for duty-free car parts. Nor do they care.

If he sent the pans seperately the size might not be too big to mail, it wasn't for me. But if you add all the other stuff in there the box -might- be too big.

Best of luck, I'd call him tho. He is supposed to be a heck of a nice guy.
