I'm not really so sure about this. If the left front fender dies were
made available again that part alone would probably be cost effective
enough to reman a few hundred of them. Granted they would still be quite
expensive, at least they wouldn't be so rare. The other panels, your
right. They are available enough as it is on the NOS/used markets not to
be worth the cost.
