Default Wood kits

Are any of the Model A Ford top and body wood kits of better quality than others- better fitup ect. I have a 28 sport coupe that needs new wood. Thanks.

None fit 100% out of the box.

I just visited with Classic Wood on my way home from the Tobacco Road Tour and they are going strong under the new management. The shop foreman is still with them, the same guy for many years.
His experience is very obvious and he is very knowledgeable and good at what he does.
I really enjoyed visiting with them and while not perfect they put out a great product.

I purchased my 28 sport coupe wood from fordwood.com very detailed, but still needed some fine tuning on the header wood.
