My experience with "outlaw" parts has been that the fit and finish leaves quite a bit to be desired. There are about 3 levels of quality in "outlaw" body parts. The very best will have a "CAPA" sticker, and they have issues. That said, any bodyman half worth his/her salt will be able to make it fit, and look good. But I charge extra labor, due to the fitment troubles. Sometimes it's less expensive to just order OEM. (depending on the part) And sometimes it's still cheaper, even with the added labor to make it fit. Just depends on the part, and the part price. I've had to return 3 covers, just to get a 4th one that I could work with. And don't even get me started on "outlaw" metal parts.
