    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!
