Quality/cost comparison

Postby sg18438 » Fri Jan 13, 2012 10:51 am

I'm currently shopping for interior panels for my '61 Bugeye. Can't help but notice the dramatic difference in pricing for the interior kits between Moss & Victoria...$350. at Moss vs $220. at Victoria. Is there a significant difference in the quality of the two kits?

I'm trying to determine the same thing for seat covers and foam kits. Huge variation in prices out there.

AHSpares was my choice. I'm well satisfied.

My opinion FWIW is if your not on too tight a budget then go to a trimmers. Might cost more but you'll have better quality control. Not used VB a lot but burnt too many times in the past with poor quality parts from Moss that I only ever use them as a last resort.

I bought all my seat stuff from AH Spares and bought matching vinyl to cover my dash and door pockets. I'm happy with their quality and their prices are the best, but shipping is high. It only makes sense to buy from them if you're getting a lot of stuff.
