The second dealer I spoke to which is somewhat local (about a 45 min ride), offered to match Tischer's prices so I get the benefit of a great price, with being able to actually inspect the parts prior to picking them up. I've restored several classic cars and have had my fair share of shipping damage on parts. Certainly not saying it was anyone's fault or that it would happen in this case, but if I don't have to pay the shipping costs and can inspect them prior to pick up, then that's worth a few bucks extra to me personally.
The guy who paints all of my classics will be doing the paint on these parts, so it's really just a matter of getting a parts list and placing the order with the local dealer.
