Question Aluminum Body Components/Chevelle

Any plans to offer any body parts for Chevelles in aluminum?

The next Q, if in the affirmative, is naturally: When?

If aluminum body parts were a choice,
I'd never buy another piece
of stamped "tin" again...ever.


You've got a gigantic pool of potential
clients for aluminum body components...

Fenders & hoods first, then chromed aluminum bumpers, trunk lids & radiator supports, inner fenders quarterpanels & doors.

Performance, MPG, Rust-Proof!!! What a product! Something for everyone!!

Make them! We'll buy them!!!!!!!!!


Our Chevelles also deserve aluminum body panels, not just Fox-bodies & Camaros.

Omigawd!


Would I loves me some ALUMINUM BODY PARTS all over my Chevelle!!!!

Just say when!!


If you make them, Chevelle owners will keep you busy for a longgggg time.


We've got just as much money as the Camaro guys, & more than the Mustang 5.0 guys.

Shouldn't we have aluminum body parts also???

Well said!

Please, at the very least, an aluminum 2" cowl hood would be a nice start.

Interesting. The Carbon Fiber body panel thread got more response than this. Never thought I'd see that any time soon.

I can believe it. Currently carbon fiber is the lightest material to make body parts from. But I'd prefer aluminum for cost reasons. I'm a street guy. If I was a racer, I'd try to go carbon fiber all the way.

Plus, UV does not destroy aluminum, like it does CF.


PREFERENCES:

High-buck racecar = CF if available, fiberglass if not.

Unsponsored street/strip car = Aluminum.

Hungry Tinworm = regular old sheet metal

I wonder what front end components would weigh compared to one another. I know CF costs are high but I'd be curious to know how much weight the Chevelle could drop. I'm not after a race car at all but saving weight and being competitive (in style) is always a welcome.

Question Re: Aluminum Body Components/Chevelle

I posted on a couple of different sites about aluminum panels for Chevelle's.

Autometaldirect.com make panels for Camaro's. I talked with Alan and he said there was no market and no plans in the future for production for a Chevelle. So if you are interested, contact Alan. Like the saying goes "the squeaky wheel gets greased." I would like a aluminum front on one of my Chevelle's.

I am looking for a hood 2 or 4 inch, fenders, front bumper, doors, trunk, rear bumper. I'm thinking Big, I KNOW.
So if you are in with this idea, let auto metal direct know there is a market.

"NO MARKET"?? WTH??

The aluminum body panels they're making for Camaros and Fox-Mustangs, etc...are not that much more expensive...light-weight, no rust...I'd buy fenders & hoods for 1 Chevelle now...another Chevelle same, plus doors.
