There’s a little bit about the places putting these bodies together after this video:
In this video, we put together a sample of all the steel bodies being assembled and built from start to finish, including the shipping process…
Real Deal Steel (RDS):
All RDS replacement bodies are made using “water-cooled automobile factory resistance spot welders”, similar to the ones GM and Ford used to make their first few cars. Smaller jobs use a standard “wire-fed MIG and Pro-Spot spot welder.”
RDS is test-fitted with doors and trunk lid to be sure that all panels fit correctly when you receive your order. RDS also test-fits the windshield and backglass to make sure there will be no issues with the glass fitting or with using an original fender or door panel. We sell their Tri-5 Chevy, Camaro, 40 Ford and Nova steel replacement bodies.
Dynacorn “has been supplying the classic muscle car enthusiast with quality sheet metal, bright trim and molding for restorations or for just plain making a ride look its best.” Dynacorn keeps an extremely close eye on quality and craftsmanship, using up-to-date tools and steel that’s always available on the market. 1006 Universal grade Automotive steel to be exact. We sell their Chevelle, Challenger and Mustang steel replacement bodies.
Both RDS and Dynacorn build everything to factory specifications!
