I have taken note of the thin material of Taiwan. I don't think they will ever go thicker gauge as they are only interested in the collision market to serve insurance companies. They are even letting go of producing some old Jeep parts now and moving on to the newer models. Doing the old models do not make sense to them anymore.

So my aim is to get the right holes using the right gauge metal. To satisfy the restoration market.

Hopefully we get enough information to correct these right away.

Are you making other Jeep body parts? Like the fenders, windshield frames, and full or half hard doors?

Rommel,

You may want to look into incorporating e-coating the tubs once you get all the other issues corrected. I see you're just spraying the primer on now which is probably Keith ran into the problems with it that he did.

Here's some good information on it;

Any idea how much all these modifications are going to effect pricing?

I'm glad you brought this up. I got an PM from someone by the name of Elmer asking if I'm going to the event. Asked for Full name, address and shirt size. Not sure why you want my full address? Is this one of your guys? I do plan to attend just have to wait to get my kids Hockey schedule to see if I can attend.

I will have a 6 day old then. I am pretty sure I would no longer need a vasectomy if I proposed going to this. Sorry Rommel- Vandy out. Hope you guys have a heck of a time though. Hope JF is well represented.

'dowg- pretty sure that was for the MD Juan shirt!
