Re: Aluminum Body Components/Chevelle

Getting back into my '69 ... I ran into this thread.

You have to find some humor in this though ... If everyone wanted lightweight, poor fitting replacement panels ... they've been available for years!

Not knocking AMD ... I'm actually going to go "All In" buying a complete doghouse from them, but me and some friends have joked for years that no one in the 60's would have needed acid dipping with today's replacement parts.

Oh, by the way, if this is to judge market for aluminum body panels ... I'm out.
Thanks, Neal
