    if its body panels have to use steel, i think .045 min. if i find my rule book ill let you know. if you are patching holes you can use aluminium

    ok just found my rule book does not specify on metal for body panels, just that it should be stock appearing (rule 10 pg. 26). Rule 8 says: floor pan must remain stock from front firewall to rear axle. Plug up unused holes with aluminum or steel, and reduce openings to a minimum where linkages and etc. pass through. These rules are from A.A.R.A. 2012 rule book, hope it helps. Dustin McClintock

    No aluminum body panels ! Steel only! That means hoods and trunk covers also!
