<font face="Arial" size="2"> My bodyman asked me about the availability of rear patch panels(w/lips). I know Gordon's carries them but thought I should shop around for them anyway. After contacting a couple list members, it was determined that Gordon's panels were useable but lacked upper quality. "Wavy lines" and "hard to match ends"were just a couple of terms used intodays conversation.</font>

<font face="Arial" size="2"> One option that was discussed was to loose the lips. Go flat. Bodyman wants to know if they serve any real purpose other than looks.One pro togoing flat is a large cost savings. Of course the con is no lips.</font>

<font face="Arial" size="2">Any thoughts?</font>

Brian, someone once told me that the steel on the cars with the lips is
slightly thinner and the profile at the bottom works as a reinforcement -
another explanation is they provide somewhere for the metal to absorb a dent
rather than putting extra force on the rivits, but I think most people keep
them because they look better !

Is this the "bondo body bloke" you had problems with last week ? Kick him
into touch !!
