Keystone cab corner fits horrible, any better ones out there?

The cab corners for my 72 I got from keystone fit horrible. Anyone have opinions on best nos sheet metal, what's good and what's not good? I've also heard most panels are all made from the same manufacture and then distributed to other companies such as year one or lmc, any truth to that? Thanks

No aftermarket sheet metal fits good in my opinion. You have to make it fit.

The bummer is there is no NOS cab corners, the whole b pillar is what the dealers had back in the day.

I like the tabco set that I have... steel feels stronger too..

Re: Keystone cab corner fits horrible, any better ones out there?

I use a local place, Grumpy's Truck parts (also online). Not that I've done a lot of these, but inner and outer rockers, the front cab support and the rear cab corner. The piece I had the biggest issue with was the front cab support. The inner fit well, the outer needed to be "widened" a hair. The cab corner seems to be fine, but my problem seems to be that I'm chasing holes in the back of the cab...

Thanks for your input guys. Excuse me for some reason I thought nos meant aftermarket, never mind. And I tried looking for the Tabco cab corners and could only find inners, are they available some where else?
