Default 40 Ford Replacement Panel

Anyone had any experience with the under the deck lid panel for 40 coupes made by United Pacific?

Their floors are a good fit so the panel should be also.
I've had good experiences with Drakes and Carpenters under trunk panels - never tried EMS.

HUGE difference in both quality and fit when comparing EMS and United Pacific stuff. DD

Not a '40, but my friend used UP quarters and floor in his rough 32 coupe, he was very happy with the way they fit.

Ken...Here's the WWW catalog page for that United Pacific below-trunk panel with phone number, etc. Their web site is difficult to find. Click the link below for the panel. Their entire FORD parts catalog starts at page 1 if you click on the second link below. DD

The panels I'd got from Drake (once he made them with the correct curves) had fit perfectly every time. Three of them as I recall - perhaps four. CRS.

Received the pan today from Pacific. It's identical the pan Drake sold, um, that is - when he had them.

Kube, are you satisfied with the United Pacific tail pan, how it looks and fits?

I wouldn't be surprised if the Drake , Carpenter , and United Pacific all come from the same factory in China. My understanding is the factory contract's have been requiring larger than demand production runs is why we have seen the discontinue of production by both Drake and Carpenter on many of the replacement body panels. United Pacific is the new player in the game trying to satisfy the factory

I believe this pan is identical to Drake's. Even the box appears the same.
I've installed three, maybe four, of Drake's pans with great results.

I would not be surprised if all the panels are from the same supplier who stepped up and had a lot made. Only makes sense.
