Title: Body Sheet Metal Question
Post by: Mike on April 28, 2008, 02:14:39 PM
Ok, so the more I search around for trunk floors, interior rear replacement floors, etc. I find that there a few online sites with most of what I need but at different prices.  Was curious to know if anybody has ordered replacement sheet metal from any online store and if so which?  I found replacement rocker panels for $72 for the set on one site and then $49.95 each on another....If anybody has any other suggestions please let me know, I'm open to just about any ideas thus far

Just be careful.  None of that 16 or 18 Ga crap.  As I recall, the bodys were stamped in 20 Ga

I'm confused.  Isn't 20 Ga lighter than 16?  (or is that just wire)
 
 
Mike,
 
Have you checked out this site ?   http://forabodiesonly.com/mopar/ (http://forabodiesonly.com/mopar/)
 
I'm not sure they're as knowledgable as the folks here, but it is A body specific, so I've found some useful info there.

Yes, you want 16-18-20  gauge...it's 22 gauge that's crap. They usually make parts out of it because the don't have heavy enough machinery to bend and press the thicker shtuff....

Yes 20 Gauge is lighter than 16.  But 16 is pretty thick stuff.  That's what they use to make spring pockets and K frames out of.  Make a hello a dent resistant car. . (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)
