Part 102696 - Front Bed Panels Embossed Bowtie

I used many Mar-K parts to build my 57 Chevy pickup, including bed sides (with no pockets and pre-welded SS angles), bed front panel, tailgate (with hidden latches and supports), SS bed supports, rear bed support and roll pan, oak bed wood, and polished SS bed strips. Every Mar-K component I used arrived in great condition and was very well designed and built. Its nice to have the piece-of-mind that using Mar-K parts brings, since I spent so much time and energy building our dream truck. I always recommend Mar-K whenever the opportunity arises.

Part 120100 - Front Bed Panels Original

I ordered pretty much the whole bed for my '55 from Mar-K, and found all the parts to be of excellent quality. Having been the victim of body panels from other (offshore) suppliers, I can say I am very pleased with these parts! The dimensions were perfect, the bends look identical to the originals, the metal thickness was right, the spot-welds looked right & were in the right places, all the welded-in nuts were the right size, and I was really happy to see that they use zinc-plated steel. The small cost delta compared to other suppliers is absolutely worth it!!!
I have only one minor complaint about the whole order: My front bed panel arrived somewhat bent. All of the other parts had well-engineered boxes with wood & hard foam supports to prevent damage during shipment. But the front panel arrived in a simple box that couldn't stand up to the weight of some other items placed on top of it in the pallet. I was able to straighten the panel, although it still has a bit of an 'oil can'. I'm reasonably confident this will come out once the whole thing is assembled. In fact, I wouldn't even mention it except that Mar-K came so close to 100% excellence that I'm sure they'd like to know about this small issue so they can correct it in the future.

the bed panel was easy to install and all but one of the bolt holes lined up correctly.the center hole at the bottom of the panel was drilled in the wrong place.not a problem though i only had to drill one hole and the hardware all fit the way it should.

Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the parts I have purchased from you. I have a front bed panel, cross sills, tailgate, and rollpan installed on my 53' Chevy. All pieces fit perfectly with no issues whatsoever. I am so used to having to |fit| parts because they really don't fit. Its nice to know if I get something from you its going to work! Now I just wish you would make fenders!
By Joe Warner
Part 102695 - Front Bed Panels Embossed Bowtie

You guys make great products! Every one of the items I purchased from you |fit|. No grinding, bending, filing, cutting, adjusting required. I took them out of the box, and they just fit. That says a lot! Also, when I did call your folks to talk through what I needed, they were some of the most personable people I've dealt with. ---- Thanks

Part 100609 - Front Bed Panels Original

Nice quality, only suggestion is that it would be worth having this piece available without that step on the 'weld-to| lip. When butt welding its not necessary to have this step. It would also be great to have the flanges available for the sides as well.

I received the following parts (below) earlier this summer and were very happy with their quality -- thanks!

Part 100612 - Front Bed Panels Original

I am very pleased with the weight & quality of your product. I ordered aftermarket fenders from another vendor and they look horrible next to your bed sides. The only thing I saw that looks a little off is the head board - it's slightly twisted. However, I expect it will straighten out once bolted in place.

Sincerely, J.Hovde
