Try giving Lamonte at Classic a call. Maybe they left it long so it could be cut to fit depending how the owner wanted to attach it (butt vs lap welds)?

LaMont adds extra material to his products, so the end user can cut to fit, instead of the panel being too short...
 
take a look at my resto thread, all the metal from the cowl back is LaMont's, and yes, there has been some fitment issues, but nothing that could not be overcome....

anything can be overcome but when the parts say easy fitment it should be easy fitment lol Censored
hey its all good it just seems that no matter where ya get this stuff from its expensive and the quality isnt what im use too i guess . this floor piece is just a flat piece of steel with a couple bends and a couple holes for 60 bucks . dose he make this stuff for other companies or is it all made in the phillipines . ive seen the same pieces sold by other companies at a higher price

I was happy w/ my floors I got from them. My trans tunnel was a mess as were the floors. The extra metal was a nice bonus for me. I made my floor replacements and a big hamer good friends and it turned out great.

I got a seat back from classic and it fit nicely. concave wasn't exact to fit the frame so only minor massaging.

not to be a pain here but it sure seems that every time someone has a fitment problem with a modern day replacement it turns into a whine festival of "how dare it not be to the exact micron". there is variance in everything these days even with modern vehicle parts I get that don't match oem tolerances. there aren't many producers of the items we need. if all we do is bitch about them cause they don't meet ones expectations eventually they will stop. I really dislike the bashing of the vendors/manufacturers who supply us with the items that we use. perhaps it boils down to attitude or general snobbiness towards the manufacturer or vendor ie: "I'm going to talk down to you because you're not on my level of standards". I am not normally the "peace and love" type of guy but when it comes down to speaking with companies nice and professional will net you more. I had an issue with my tub that appeared to be an MD Juan issue. I have them as a friend on FB and asked my question and they couldn't have been more helpful. so why all the bitching? W/O gets constantly bashed yet the other vendors sell the same tubs minus the rework yet receive no bashing? it all seem so remedial and childish.

Ovrind
When I was working with Lamonte on making the seat skins (see my project thread) I was grateful that he could do it, I tried to get the reinforcing ribs formed locally without success. He made the skins using my old "swiss cheese" skin as a pattern. I noted the to shallow curve, but made a curved wood buck to get it into the proper curve. I think it's good that Classic is actually making their own stuff instead of importing it from the far east like everyone else seems to be doing. At least he's responsive to making corrections (more than I can say for MDJ)

Gale,
I wasn't complaining about the seat back at all. it fit nicely and required minor adjustment no more so than any other remade part I have dealt with. Heck, it could have been the 60 year old seat frame was tweaked a bit as well. Perhaps I should refine my statement. for me, I feel that ordering a reman part be it u.s. made or otherwise and then griping because it it doesn't match up perfectly to a body that is over half a century old seems a bit silly. classic produces some fine stuff and there is zero dispute over that.

I guess I am not understanding why there has to be a constant hatred. furthermore I would dislike it greatly if new members came here and obtained the opinion we are a bunch of fuddy-duddy crab asses that only accept one way and one way only. if someone utilizes a omix or MDJ part are they any less of person? is their love of jeeps any less? what if that person is young or unskilled and cannot do something in the "preferred" method yet wishes to do the best they can at revitalizing one of these (or any other for that matter) vintage gems? personally I would rather see a off the shelf MDJ parts assembled into a working jeep than have it sit in a field or worse yet bought by someone who takes it apart only to realize that their intention to be "according to hoyle" only quickens their demotivation and they tow it all to the scrap yard. for some this is their way to achieve success.
