Default Deluxe door panels: Year one vs Ecklers - Why the $300 difference?

Hello,

I have been trying to figure out the difference between Ecklers $600 Deluxe door panels for the 68 corvette and Year One's $900 Deluxe door panels for the same 68 corvette.

Anyone have any feedback on this?

Is there some extreme quality difference?

Any experience with the deluxe door panels from either of the above manufacturers would be appreciated.

My best,

Bryan

I bought some year one stuff for a Camaro i owned years back- NO there is no quality difference between their door panels and anyone elses.. in all likelyhood they are the same panels anyway.

Year One is expensive - period.
