    After seeing junk Chinese parts rant threads, I just wanted to give a shout out to this company supplying us with made in house parts . I found them on Ebay, have bought a few different items from them and they all fit great, priced right and are made in Detroit. Look em up next time you need something. I haven't been to their website yet, so I not sure how much stuff they have. 20200117_151245.jpg

      I don't know if Jim is a member here or not? He is 71TA on Moparts, and is one of the hardest working individuals on the planet. He is very detail oriented, and makes good stuff. I have used several of his kits to redo heater boxes. Great parts!

        I bought my body gasket kit from them when I repainted my car. The kit was very complete and really nice quality.
        The only problem I had with the kit was the mirror gaskets. Which I believe were for 67 and newer a-bodies, not the 63-66 a-bodies.

        I used an A/C and heater box gasket kit from them. It fit great and came with extra gaskets that I didn't need or overlooked.

            I worked with Jim to come up with the lower overlay for the A-body rallye dashes. I sent a few different bezels back and forth to give him the patterns he needed to make the overlays. The lower overlay, paired up with the upper overlay he already sold, makes it a ton easier to restore a rallye gauge bezel. He did mine up in carbon fiber, turned out great!

            I also used one of his kits for my Challenger's heater box. Everything worked great and made that restoration a lot easier.

              Yes, I have bought from them before myself. That might be a good idea. For someone to get up a list of USA made parts and tools and the like and post it in the How To section. How To Buy American for your project.

                  I’ve bought from them and their products are top notch!
                  You can find them on eBay listed under


                  seller:lorettafillmore

                  They’ll even do custom work, on my dash insert they did a radio delete. On my console inserts they did a shifter and ash tray delete. All you have to do is when you order just put it in the notes how you want it and they’ll do it for no extra charge!

                    I rememeber that name , I `ve bought a few things from them, off their ebay store -----------
                    I bought an upper dash overlay on ebay way back , fit perfect , looks fantastic , and has held up very well .----(just make sure the old pad is flat and has no raised places in it =easy stuff).
                    My bottom pads aren`t bad but don't look as good as the top now, have been watching for another deal on ebay , but "no cigar !"

                      Thanks for posting! This is a great find. I need just about everything they have listed for my 65 Dart Go Go coupe and my convertible clone. Prices seem vert reasonable to me.

                          If he doesn’t make it and you have an original, he WILL make it. Great parts and great quality!
