I will suggest VFN.I bought doors,fenders and a decklid for my GS last November and the quality is really good. I just put the doors on and decklid as well and they needed very little work.I also used their 70 bumpers ,but had to make some mounting tabs for the rear to mount the taillights,but that wasn't a tough job.I also have a US Bodysource 3 1/2 cowl hood on my car and the quality is good as well. These are all Buick parts and not many places offer Skylark/GS parts. I was at VFN'S business and picked up my parts and was impressed at the molds they had. I only wish they would have had a 1 piece frontend for my car like I seen they had for Nova's,Chevelle's Vega's etc.To me,they have nice products and are reasonablly priced. I seen alot of Glasstek parts and they are great as well.

VFN and Glasstech are the best for quality and fit...... You may pay alittle more but you will be happy at the end!!!


I also agree with Racefab57 to stay away from Brutisglassworks and unlimited products!!!!!!!!!

I have a couple of buddies that have used Token Fiberflass out of Mission, BC Canada. Their stuff is really nice. A friend of mine who has a body shop did a scoop for a customer and was really impressed. it was a light rub and it was ready for paint. the toll free # is 1.866.888.6536 or 604.826.4406.. They have a web page http://www.tokenfiberglass.com

I am not too sure if they have listed what parts are available but they do very nice work. You want to talk to Ken. He is the owner and would be able to give you a better idea of what is available

Good luck

Default VFN

I ahve VFN on the Monte Carlo and it is just fine.
Lightweight, good finish, enough exxtra material to make fit and droop.

I just installed my front end, doors, deck, and rear bumper that i got from VFN. The hood needed a lot of trimming to fit on to the front end. The rear bumper will have to be cut and filled to fit on one side. The doors are perfect. Its probably the same for every fiberglass company. I'm sure they all have fit and finish issues on certain parts.
PS, anyone know where i can find a nice adjustable rear spoiler?
