Unless you're a skilled auto body repair specialist and painter you're going to have to pay one if you want your car or truck to look right. Whether it's fixing collision damage, rust repair, a vehicle restoration, or a combination of the three, a first class job will require a significant outlay of cash for labor, but you can reduce the total cost of the project by purchasing the auto body parts from us. Peruse our auto body parts online store and you'll see that we offer all the sheet metal body panels as well as bumpers, grilles, lights, glass, window components and interior parts, all at much lower prices than you'd pay at a local auto body parts store or dealer.

You not only save money when you buy aftermarket auto body parts from us, but in doing so you have control over the quality of the parts that are used to repair your car or truck. Who knows what hidden damage lurks underneath the paint of used parts, and some aftermarket parts are of questionable quality, with incorrect dimensions and thickness that can make them hard to fit and less durable, with a less than satisfactory finished appearance. Our collision repair parts are sourced from trusted manufacturers who form all their auto body panels according to OE specifications using the most modern tooling, so you can be assured that your panels will look and fit exactly as designed. Our restoration parts are exact replicas of the original parts, made by companies staffed by car enthusiasts who specialize in restoration parts.

Rust is such a problem on classics and muscle cars that many buyers will search high and low in road salt free areas or travel many miles to dry desert regions to find a solid project car. But sometimes you just have to work with what you have, and unfortunately this means dealing with insidious corrosion along with the obvious rusted through quarter panels and fenders. This insidious rust can reveal itself in floor pans, trunk floors and other areas, but if you find it you won't have to make your own panels for the repair. Our restoration parts companies know the classics, they know muscle cars and they know the problem areas, so they've created floor pans, rocker panels, patch panels and other replacement auto body parts to give your restoration a solid foundation.

Restorers want to keep their vehicles as original as possible, which means not replacing parts if it can be avoided. If you have damaged quarter panels and you shop with us you can get just the amount of quarter panel you need, saving you money and preserving as much of your original car as possible. We have full quarters, also called OE or factory style panels that include the sail panel and door jamb; quarter skins that don't include the roof sides or structural connections; and quarter patch panels when only a small section of metal is needed.

While the major car body parts and panels are certainly important, there are many smaller trim pieces and components that are essential for a proper collision repair. Some collision parts vendors may leave it to you to source such parts but we think you should be able to get everything you need in one place. For example, instead of just bumpers we've also stocked our digital shelves with the necessary brackets, reinforcement bars, impact strips, moldings, covers, and valances to finish the job, and along with our grilles, we have the moldings and emblems that make the car complete. Our aftermarket auto body parts can be key components of a successful collision repair. After all, painted auto body parts will only look as good as the sheet metal beneath the paint allows. With our collision auto parts, you don't have to spend a lot to get quality panels, and you don't have to drive all over or make a lot of calls to get the parts that you need.

  • Dash Cover Material & Color Choices
    Today's dashboard covers are more than just loosely cut pieces of excess material taped across the top surface of your dash. They're handsome-looking, stylish pieces that boost the looks of any car or truck interior. They can also bring the look and feel of suede, velour, plush carpeting, and even real carbon fiber to the inside of your ride - on your dash, which is in some ways a "blank canvas", waiting for your custom touch.

  • Towing Mirrors | The Aftermarket Solution To Best Vision When Trailering
    Whether you're towing a trailer, boat, RV, or other equipment, keeping an eye on the road behind you becomes a challenge. Without proper side mirrors mounted further outboard, changing lanes or backing up requires a huge leap of faith - along with worry about just how high your insurance deductible is for certain types of incidents.

  • LED Fog Light Bulbs | Brighten Your View on Foggy Drives
    When you consider the vital role that fog lights play, it's easy to see that brighter is better. Because fog lights are positioned lower to the ground, the light they cast illuminates the surface of the road much closer to you. On uneven or poor road surfaces, this lets you see tire-damaging potholes in time to avoid them.

  • What is a Bumper Valance?
    Maybe you've heard the term "bumper valance", or "valance panel", but you're not quite sure what one is. When it comes to non-automotive applications, the dictionary defines a valance as a piece of material that hangs loosely from a bed, table, or shelf to conceal what's underneath for decorative purposes. So how does it relate to an automobile?

  • Hood Pins | Definitions, Selection, and Installation
    Hood pins are a great-looking style element that can be added easily to any vehicle. But did you know they actually serve an important purpose? These pins keep the hood buttoned down in the event the main latch should fail - preventing the hood panel from flying open at speed. This often happens after accidents, that's why many racetracks require hood pins to be fitted on competition cars.

  • Off-Road Fog Lights | When the Road Ends and the Fog Begins
    Experienced off-roaders say one of the most valuable things you could have on your vehicle when riding over the trails is a strong set of lights that help you see through the darkness - in any kind of weather. Since the best times of year to enjoy the woods and the trails happen to be the seasons when outside temperatures change drastically from afternoon to evening, fog can arise seemingly out of nowhere with little or no warning. And if it's cold enough, that mist can form ice before you know it.

  • Replacement Fender Moldings & Trim | The Finishing Touch When Replacing a Fender
    Most cars and trucks, especially older ones, have so many exterior trim pieces that it's hard to know where to start when it comes to replacing worn and weathered bits that drag down an entire vehicle's appearance. In this article, we'll take a look at the moldings and trim pieces we carry for wheel well openings, fender flares, side marker lights, and quarter panels. When you consider these replacement fender moldings cost relatively little, are very easy to install, and look as good as originals did when they were new - you'll realize they offer a lot of bang for the buck.

  • LED Headlight Conversion Bulbs | The Cost-Effective Way to Better Lighting
    Exciting advances in technology have finally made it possible for the benefits of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to work effectively as automotive headlight bulbs. Engineers have been working on perfecting LED headlight bulbs for years, but it just recently that heat and temperature issues were solved. Because headlights burn much brighter than any other bulb on a vehicle, finding a way to manage heat levels with the consistency needed to ensure reliable, long-lasting LED operation proved challenging.

  • Hood Hinges & Springs | Replacing Your Hood's 'Weak Link'
    No matter what size your car or truck is, its hood is one of, if not the, largest, bulkiest, and heaviest body panels on it. Hoods are fastened to the body structure either near the windshield firewall or at the very front - using hinges and brackets designed to pivot and support the weight of the hood fully once it's opened.

  • Chrome Mirror Covers Hide Scratches and Add Brightness
    Narrow driveways with inches to spare on each side. Overgrown roadways with bushes and tree branches sticking out into the center. Crowded garages filled with bicycles and lawn equipment strewn everywhere. Supermarket parking lots where shoppers push their carts errantly close to get by.

  • How To Paint Your Replacement Plastic Bumper
    If you've decided to replace a damaged front or rear bumper cover with a new one, the good news is your vehicle really is going to look a whole lot better once it's installed. Of course, the areas of major damage will be gone and will no longer be a value-deflating eyesore. You'll also have a new piece that's free of the chips, dings, and even cracks you've been putting up with.

  • Replacement Hoods: Easy Sheet Metal Work For The DIY Gal Or Guy
    The hood panel of your car or truck is an integral part of your vehicle, and one of the first things people see when they look at your car or truck. When a hood panel isn't 100% right, there's no hiding it. And if you've got a classic from your youth, you are not going to feel good about your ride when sheet metal is compromised - especially a hood panel. Unfortunately, it doesn't take much to damage a hood panel. Any vehicle that's seen a number of miles is bound to have some kind of wear and damage to its engine lid. Statistically, accidents are most likely to result in front-end vehicle damage where hood panels are crinkled beyond repair. Hits from the side can be just as damaging, because left or right fenders usually always push into the hood panel.

  • Inner Fenders: Hidden Protection for Your Outer Sheetmetal
    Driving through winter snow, ice, and rain means your car or truck is exposed to highly corrosive winter road salt, like it or not. And if you have any trouble guessing which particular area of your vehicle is most subject to rust because of this, just think of the one place where slush builds up the most. The area where you literally have to kick big mounds of it loose. You guessed it - the wheel wells.

  • Interior Mirror Options Bring You into the 21st Century
    It may be hard to imagine, but interior rearview mirrors are subject to a lot of stress. Direct sunlight and extreme interior temperatures take their toll - eventually causing glue and bonding materials to deteriorate from the edges inward. As a result, those edges of the mirror appear to be crinkling up like tinfoil - a distracting and unsightly sight that has the effect of making the rest of your vehicle seem old and tired.

  • Factory Fog Lights | Perfect For Replacement Or Upgrade
    While the functional benefits of fog lights are beyond question, it also cannot be denied that fog lights go a long way toward adding style to the face of your vehicle. Because fog lights are traditionally designed to mount underneath or inside the front bumper cover, their lower position puts them at a higher risk of becoming damaged. Road debris, speed bumps, parking spot bumpers, and high snow often take a toll - damaging fog lights beyond repair.

  • Chrome Bumpers: The Good Old Days When Bumpers Were Metal
    Throughout the history of the automobile, metal bumpers with chrome-plated finish have been used as much for visual expression as they have for function. Go to any classic car show, and you're bound to hear at least one conversation covering the subject of how chrome bumpers are closely tied to "the good old days", with any given style representing the beginning or end of any individual's golden era of choice. In this article, we'll take a brief look at the history of chrome bumpers, how government regulations affected designs, and why chrome bumpers ultimately faded away. We'll also touch on replacement chrome bumpers we offer in the Front Bumpers and Rear Bumpers sections of our website.

  • What Is The Procedure To Install A Hood Scoop?
    In the custom hoods section of our website, you'll find add-on hood air scoops that create an unmistakable look of power. Since the beginning of hot-rodding, racers have been fitting scoops onto their cars both for looks and function. Over the years, many high-performance muscle cars have even featured them as original equipment on top trim levels. Hood scoop openings can face forward in order to guide cool air into the engine, or the openings can face rearward to take advantage of the high pressure area at the base of the windshield. Whichever way they are positioned, airflow under the hood increases - a factor that improves both induction and heat ventilation to varying degrees.

  • Tail Light Guards: Good-Looking Protection For The Back End Too
    Unlike passenger cars, virtually all modern pickups, sport utility vehicles, and Jeeps feature squared-off rear corners – a configuration that’s dictated more by necessity than by choice. Positioned on those sharp-edged corners at the most vulnerable spots possible are the tail light assemblies. We use the word vulnerable because tail lights really are sticking out there, with no protection.

  • Lifts & Ramps Safely Bring Your Vehicle Up To Working Height
    The odds are that if you clicked on this article to read it, then you appreciate the idea of working on your own car. Perhaps when you pass by a professional garage or shop, you're a bit envious as you glance in and see service bays filled with lifts and other equipment that make certain repair jobs easier. Professionals use lifts for a good reason - they allow you to perform almost any repair at a more comfortable height so you can see clearly, apply torque easily, reach for tools faster, and have access to areas normally inaccessible with the vehicle on the ground.

  • Care And Feeding Of Your Composite Headlamps
    The condition of a vehicle's headlights is probably the last thing most drivers worry about unless there's a significant problem. Yesterday's cars with sealed beam headlights required little maintenance other than to replace a round or rectangular unit when one burned out. And once a new headlight was put in, everything looked and worked like new again.

  • What Are My Choices For Custom Hood Materials?
    An automobile hood is one of the body panels on your vehicle with the largest surface area, and it's the one panel you'll be looking at every minute you're behind the wheel. Considering this, maybe you find it as odd as we do that many vehicle manufacturers have chosen to make modern hood panels flat and boring, thanks in large part to the search for low wind resistance.

  • What Type of Body Kit Material Should I Choose?
    If you're reading this, you've probably decided the factory stock appearance of your car, while attractive, is rather staid and unexciting. You know that modifying your vehicle with a body kit is what feels right when it comes to adding a personal touch and making it your own. Maybe you're considering starting out slowly by adding a rear spoiler or front air dam, or going further with side skirts and even a replacement custom hood.

  • Body Kit Installation | Weekend DIY, or Professional Shop?
    At CARiD, we understand how deeply the appeal of side skirts, rear diffusers, aero wings, air dams, custom replacement bumper covers, and other components included in body kits runs in the blood of automotive enthusiasts.

  • Are Body Kits for Show or for Go?
    Full body kits are inspired by the look and functionality of body panel refinements made to racecars after relentless amounts of wind tunnel testing and aerodynamic adjustments on the track. Careful sculpting of body panels with addition of air dams, skirts, rear spoilers, ridges and diffusers serves to control airflow around the car - yielding a lower coefficient of drag along with greater amounts of downforce that keep a car pressed against the ground at higher speeds.

  • Why is it important to do a brake fluid flush?
    If you've ever visited an automotive dealership service department, you may have been told that your vehicle needs a brake fluid flush. Or you might have received a coupon mailer offering this service for a discounted price. Maybe you thought it was an attempt on the part of the dealer to separate you from your money for something you don't really need. After all, you have made the effort to learn more about your brakes, and you understand that occasionally, the brake pads and rotors will wear out and need replacing. However, you've never heard of a "brake fluid flush".

  • How To Replace Disc Brake Pads
    Disc brakes have been the most common setup on modern vehicles for decades, with just about 100% of today's vehicles using them in the front, and many cars and trucks also equipping the rear with disc brakes. The brake pads are the wear items which will need attention sooner or later; there will be wide variations in brake pad life depending on the vehicle, driver, driving style, etc., but rough estimates are that front pads will need attention every 15,000-30,000 miles, with rear disc pads lasting 50,000-100,000 miles.

  • Glossary of Brake Terminology
    Whether you're looking to replace worn brake pads and rotors or delving into more detailed brake repairs or upgrades that involve new calipers, proportioning valves, master cylinders, vacuum boosters, and more, you will come across a lot of different terminology when it comes to brake components. Depending on your knowledge and experience, a lot of these terms may be elementary. However, because many of them use similar words but represent completely different things, we've created this glossary to help you understand exactly what you need, and what you don't.

  • What Special Tools Are Available For Suspension Repair?
    Seasoned professional automotive technicians often say if you're using too much physical effort during a repair, you're simply not using the right tool. This is true, and a perfect example is repairing and replacing suspension components. If you've ever done this type of work or attempted to do it, you know it can be trickier than merely loosening and tightening bolts.
