We collect state sales tax on purchases as dictated by state legislation. For certain states, Restoration Performance is not currently obligated to, and does not, collect state sales tax on your purchase. For those states, your purchase is subject to tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Placing your order on the internet or by any other remote means does NOT exempt your purchase from tax. Certain states may require us to provide an annual notice to you of your purchases and to notify your state tax department of your annual purchases. Details for reporting your untaxed purchases, filing a tax return and paying any tax may be found on the tax department website for your state of residence.

If you find a product for less, we will match the price!
Restoration Performance will match any competitor’s current advertised retail price for an identical product and manufacture. Simply send us a copy of the competitors’ current advertised price from a catalog, advertisement or website (with URL) and we’ll match the price. The price match guarantee is available at the time the order is placed and available for in-stock merchandise only. Price matching will be determined by a competitor’s most current retail-published price and is limited to competitors selling to the retail public.
If we match a price from a competitor, additional discounts on that product or products may not apply. We reserve the right to modify or revoke this offer at any time without notice. Sale items, kits, discount exempt products, special orders, promotional items, engines, tires, and all performance parts are exempt from the Price Matching policy. We reserve the right to decline price matching if the competitors’ pricing is deemed to be a special offer, a sale, closeout price, promotional offer or an out-of-date price. We will contact competitors to confirm that the published price is current due to market changes, demand or availability.
Availability of all items in this catalog are subject to change without notice. We reserve the right to discontinue products, services or accessories without notice. Price changes are due to manufacturers and material fluctuating costs. In the event of extreme increases, you will be notified promptly before we ship. If there is only a slight increase, you parts will be shipped at the prevailing prices. We assume no liability for errors herein. Some parts may not be legal for sale or use in some states including California on any pollution controlled motor vehicle
The invoice located in the packing slip of your order will notate any items that were out of stock at the time of shipping. The unavailable items will be back ordered unless otherwise specified on your order form or verbally to a sales representative when placing your order by phone. Back orders are usually shipped when the products arrive at our warehouse without prior notification. Restoration Performance will make an effort to contact the customer if the back order is more than 90 days old. If you wish to cancel a back order, please notify our customer service department immediately. The customer will be responsible for a restocking fee and freight charges if the back order is cancelled or returned after the items are shipped.
Please have the billing address if using a credit card to pay for your order. All credit cards are verified by the name and address before shipping. You may have your order shipped to a different address providing the cardholders name and address matches the credit card you are using. You may be asked to contact your credit card company and have your shipping address added to your account.
We Accept major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard and PayPal. Please have your credit card readily available before ordering. A security code and address of the card holder is required on all credit card orders. All truck orders and special order products must be pre-paid.
The sheet metal you receive may have scratches, dings, small dents and other minor imperfections which are considered normal sheet metal characteristics due to the nature of the product. These minor imperfections will be easily corrected during the filling, priming and sanding phase of your sheet metal installation. We does not consider dings, scratches, minor dents or other imperfections on the sheet metal to be defects in the panel nor are they considered damaged. All sheet metal panels will require some sort of preparation and manipulation during installation. Every panel that we sell is inspected and then carefully packaged to protect against damage that may occur during transit.
We recommend test fitting all sheet metal panels prior to final paint and installation. Minor modifications including elongating mounting holes, adding additional shims, etc. are normal and may be necessary when installing sheet metal. It is important to note that hard driving conditions, like racing, can twist bodies and frames out of original tolerances. Poor bodywork from previous collisions can cause problems with the body structure that the panels are attached to. Some vehicles were manufactured with a unitized body causing even the most minor accident to twist the body creating a situation that would cause sheet metal panel mis-alignments. Take into consideration that tolerances on classic vehicles are not as exact as they are on modern vehicles. This is primarily due to the hand fitting of panels at the factory on most antique and classic cars as opposed to the robotics used in today’s modern factories. All of these factors will affect the way your new reproduction sheet metal will install and fit on the car. There is really no such thing as a direct fit body panel when it comes to older vehicles.
During the 1960’s and 1970’s, the automakers used letter codes to designate which car platform the models were built off of. Unlike today, there were basically small, midsize and large cars with perhaps a special model of each available. Following is a chart which you can use to determine which model and platform your car was build off of, and that will help you identify which parts will fit your particular application.
