First of all...please stop putting everything in capital letters. On the internet it's like shouting at everyone!..thanks.

Here's a picture of the APC rollpan. The only thing I've heard about the APC roll pan is that it's not finished off very well and a lot of preperation has to be done to it before it can be fitted to your cruiser. Where some other roll pans match right up and fit right on.


Thanks to someone named Nick Anderson for letting me borrow his cruiser picture.

There have also been many complaints about the fit of the APC roll pan.

Dunno what APC is made of (probably whatever is cheaper), but I do know some rollpans have reenforcing bars to replace some of the protection the bumper used to supply, and that they are either made of fiberglass or urethane. Fiberglass is stronger, but if hit, it cracks - urethane has more give to it.

I think the APC is made of ABS plastic. from what I have heard and seen, main issue is fitment, particularly at the interface of the wheel well and the rollpan. Someone who installed it said it was short or didn't fit right.

Thanks for the info. I just had to hear someone else. I really guess you get what you pay for. I'll look into P-Teaser ($)! or are there any others out there?

I have the APC rear rollpan and really like the looks. The price is right also. But I had a local body shop paint and install it. They too said they had some problems installing it but when all is said and done it looks really good.
