Hello everyone,

I am interested in your opinions in regards to the remanufactured parts ACP provide for our cars. Has anyone used them and how do they fit and compare to other brands?

Cheers.

APC is probably just a brand name, who gets thier reman stuff from various wholesale reman companies.

That's what I assumed, but its always good to get an educated opinion before going ahead with anything. Reason being I have access to their parts at reasonable prices.

Unfortunately, many reman companies are just "spray & pray" outfits. They'll strip parts off junk cars, will do NO testing and NO repairing or remanufacturing, put a new coat of paint on it and box it up.
They'll hopefully sell enough good units to cover the "warranty" on bad ones.
Happens more than most want to know about.

Buy all "new" parts, if you can afford to do so.

These parts are definitely new, I'm in the parts business and know retailers that sell ACP products. I'm in Australia and we import from the States, mostly Camaro parts. I'd say about 80-90% of the car will be new, and ACP probably use the exact same parts as NPD or Drake or anyone else. The thing is, I can get ACP products at a decent price (through contacts) and they have things for these cars that Drake doesn't. But like I said, it's always good to speak to someone who has used them.

Do you have a link to their Site or business?

I, too, have never heard of them.

Thanks Don. I was hoping to see you chiming in on this one.
I really like the 'Drake' and other products you sell...
