For my 63 Valiant, I got the rear floor patch panels from Layson's years ago and they're OK, still required some cutting and finagleing to get in there. Just checked and they have fronts and rears: https://www.laysons.com/Catalog.cfm?nCa ... lYear=1963
Another source is Classic 2 Current, though I have no experience with them looks like they have the fronts at lower cost: https://www.c2cfabrication.com/collecti ... liant+1963

Everyone should think very carefully and do a good bit of research before they decide (not) to spend money at Layson's. See, for just a few examples, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Much of what they sell is not of their own manufacture; a large proportion of their product line is just bought elsewhere and marked up. They're almost never the only source for a part; see here for a listing of some more reliable vendors.

I will be needing Front Pans for my 62 Valiant.

seems there are some available on eBay - not sure of the quality of them - all replacement pans are going to need some cutting welding and beating to make fit properly to the structure.


I would also probably avoid laysons if possible.

I got mine for my 78 truck from C2C. Great stuff and shipped fast. Just from laying them in they look a perfect match.

American made? I need a rocker panel for my 85 D150, was looking at either Sherman or keystone. I've used Sherman products in the past.
