    i know howell sheet metal has taken a beating here on the board before, yes i was really put out when it took almost 6 weeks to get my stuff. i ordered a set of wheel tubs for my 29 A sedan, the hot rod ones, my order was called in by steve thompson of thompsons garage in cincy oh. steve was on the phone and i emailed them a few times trying to get my tubs, well it was worth it. they are really nice, well done, the fit was great. i just thought maybe it would be nice for a change to give ryan of howell sheet metal a at-a-boy for a nice product.

    I had a mix up on the gas tank cover on Dad's '33,Ryan took care of it right away and i had the right one in a couple days.Ryan's cover fit better than the original.

    I bought cowl panels from them off ebay for my '29 A rpu . Got them in 4 days and the fit was excellent.

  12. I used to go by there in person back when the old man was running things....they were always nice to me.

    Just finished my '30 sedan doors, inner bottoms and outer lower panels. Fit perfect and easy. I have used many other parts from them with excellent results. Thumbs up here. I like their prices too.

    Sounds like the motto is cheap fast good -- pick two.

    I ordered six or seven Model T panels via Ebay and had no problem what-so-ever.
    But then I knew about the lag time...and accepted it.

    Great panels.

    building tooling
    and forming metal as i never have to deal with them again
    used them when i needed to

    i have used alot of there panels. best fit on the market in my book. always ordered parts in advance as it sometimes takes awhile. well worth the wait in my book. have had a hell of a lot worst service from some companies.

    Yes... 6 weeks. You guys forget they fab and ship parts all over the world. Most of these companies selling patch panels get them from Howells . They supply everyone. There work is top notch!
