need help on supplier

Has anyone used Carid on EBay?
They have good prices but I am concerned about their reviews.
I'm looking to buy a new roof panel for my 57 chevy truck and they are cheapest.
Thanks for any help.

I haven't used the for early stuff (yet) but just bought a piece for my 98 BMW and had it here real quick and the price was great.

I looked on Ebay and that looks like Auto metal direct.

I looked on their website and it looks like the roof is made of 19 gauge metal. http://www.autometaldirect.com/--p-1019.html

Carid's price is a lot better though.

Tri plus is made in Taiwan http://www.triplus.com.tw/index.html

That 288 price tag looks pretty good compared to the list price.
