    Has anyone used showcars body parts unlimited for any glass parts for your cars they quoted me 1895.00 for a complete pin on front clip not sure about going that way but definitely going with a glass hood since my hood has a gigantic hole from a scoop that was cut crooked lol

    I recently received my pin on hood and 5" Hemi Scoop from GLASSTECH in Illinois. A+ #1 Quality. Shipped in less than 10 days. Arrived in perfect condition as they actually put the hood in a "crate" inside the big box.

      Sure sounds like Unlimited Fiberglass.....which wasn't all that great 25 years ago but I have no idea what they are like nowadays even if they are the same company.

        A quick Google search of Showcars reveals a lot of bad reviews. Be cautious.

          I ordered a pin on fiberglass hood and scoop for my '63 belvedere from AAR quality fiberglass/stinger f/g..they emailed me yesterday that it will ship next week...

          heard nothing but positive feedback about them where as I don't want to do a lot of work to install it above and beyond the usual so I I went with them..we shall see...

            Hey Moparstyle. I wrote the book on buying bad fibreglass... and I can tell you who NOT to buy from. From all that I've been through I would suggest AAR and Mr. Mike Gaines has received some nice stuff from Glasstek. Another Bud just received a 6 pack hood for his Charger from Glasstek too and it looks great and fits right. I should mention that I bought some fibreglass bumpers from AAR recently and they were as nice as they possibly could have been.
            Good luck.

              Show cars is in Ontario Canada,why would you pay for all that shipping into Nevada? I presume we at talking about the same company. I'm only an hour away from him and still buy my glass fromAAR
