[DML] Re: Body panels: repair or replace???

There are people that can do amazing things with S/S. Probably the
best thing to do is to contact one of the major vendors. Send pictures
and they can tell you pretty accurately what it will cost to fix if
you remove the panels and send them out for repair. Be warned, the
repaired panels will look so good you will want to regrain the whole
car to match!
