It pretty much seems to be luck of the draw, although AMD seems to get good reviews.
If you can find good used parts it would be better as nothing fits like original as the lines are more crisp compared to after market.

The lines on my dynacorn quarters for my 67 are very crisp, I would give them a look for the fender and door.
