    Wheres the best place to buy an OEM or OEM like decklid panel? My 13' has poor condition clear coat and id like to replace it. Any aftermarket panels have better quality clear coat?

    I've only found junk on ebay. And i wouldn't trust it to get shipped without showing up damaged.

    I think you can buy new unpainted steel ones at LMR.

    wouldn't it be cheaper to get your decklid re-painted professionally with a good base coat/urethane clear than to buy another decklid panel?

    I see used decklids from $280-$450 plus shipping all over ebay.

    No way it costs more than $180 to prep, paint and clear a decklid at your local body shop.

    bring them the decklid completely stripped, and even prep it for them if you can and it should be even cheaper.

    I've been looking for used lid to mount my APR wing. I watch Ebay but the shipping kills the deal. I check my local Craigslist every day and just found a salvage yard listing two. Haven't heard back on price but local is the way to go.

    Ive been looking for a factory no spoiler decklid for months. Shipping kills the deal for a used one that needs paint and finding one locally is near impossible.
