  1. Hi all just thought I would take the time to share my first parts purchase for Sheena! So excited! so purchased these rust replacement panels from KFvintageJDM based on a few people speaking highly of the quality on this forum and other forums. And they were not wrong! Initial impressions is that these are indeed high quality panels. But I will let the photos do the talking... now my car is not at my place so I was unable to make a direct comparison. But I will when I go there next week and post photos. Oh no white powder found AndBir! Damn! pablo the frenchie was not as excited as I was... so I purchased floors, chassis rails, front inner rocker reinforcements, seat mounts, toe and rear boards and outer sills (still waiting on them to arrive, for some reason the two pieces were split up at some point....just arrived in nsw today apparently) inner rocker reinforcements look good, fairly oem looking to me (not an expert), I haven’t actually seen mine yet so may not need these but will see, I think I will... there looks to be extra material for trimming and fitting LHS toe board fitment looks reasonable. As with any replacement panel work will need to be done to make it fit. (So I’ve read ) I’m not sure if the flange on the rear and front of the floor pans are extra material to be trimmed, see when fitment comes. Rhs rear boards fitment isn’t great, lots of trimming and convincing will be required. To me these looked hand formed not a complete press like the floors. Center bead is pressed. Rhs rear braces don’t fit well, however I wasn’t sure on the exact placement/position it’s supposed to be in. LHS seems to be better. Modifications required. Tbh rear braces on my car are so deformed and rusted I don’t know what the fitment is supposed to look like. Seat mounts look good, fit well and have the extra bracing skin as well. I don’t know yet whether I need these or whether I can reuse mine, my floors are particularly terrible so I just ordered and can sell them on if I don’t end up using them. front seat rails on both sides are ok but not sure about the gap in the corner on the outer sides. Was there a gap in the corner from factory? Maybe someone experienced can comment? chassis rails look nice! The ends are hand made and not pressed so there is variation, LHS doesn’t fit as well as RHS. But nothing that can’t be fixed. view of the underside of the floor pan. Very oem finish in my opinion, compared to other floor pans on the market. Yet to be seen how it fits though. Overall very impressed with these panels. There is evidence that a lot of handforming is done as there seems to be a variance between panels and some welding is visible. But honestly I’m not too fussed. I found kfvintagejdm to have very good customer service. Total shipping (including outer sills which haven’t arrived was $532 USD. Total landed cost in AUD was $2637. Took under two weeks to arrive. 4 days to get from Colombia to Australia and 8 days to get from nsw to perth.....go figure... Packaging could be improved with a wrap over each floor pan but nothing was damaged so is it really necessary? All other items were wrapped in brown paper and plastic wrapped. Obviously paint gets scratched in transit but paint will be removed before priming anyway. I will update this post when my sills arrive hopefully in the next week.
