Mike is too kind. They are not perfect. They are much better than what
has been cuurently available. They will still need to be trimmed to fit
. I am still debating the end spear point. Currently the end after
fitting needs to be measured then hammer dollied down by installer.
There are many forces at work when a flat panel needs to have shape and
form. especially at tight turn where horizontal and vertical lines meet.
There is a large area of stretch while at same time an area the metal
needs to shrink. These area are prestretched by hand, so I feel end
result is estimated and never truly as good as the factory stamped
peice. I threw away many many panels before accepting these but I still
think there is always room for improvement. I appreciate kind words but
I need comments from those that have installed and fitted panels. In the
next few weeks I will post comments I receive the good and the bad.
Later Dave the Wave
