As a vehicle gets older, its panels can start to show the wear of the ages, especially on off- road rides. Dents can attribute to the deterioration, rust can build up where dirt and water get trapped, and even accidents can necessitate you addressing the body. there is a demographic of off-roaders out there who think rust and dents are cool, but we have a hard time coping with serious blemishes on the body of something we put so much time and love into. So what's a dude to do when his ride needs some bodywork? you have three options: you can replace it, repair it, or live with it.
We'd opt for the first two and replace the panels with either fiberglass or reproduction steel, or repair them.
It's been a bad couple of years for us, and we've actually had to try all methods. Fabworx Off Road in Santa Rosa, California, helped us get some new steel on one of our trucks, while Desolate Motorsports in Whittier, California, helped us get fiberglass hung in place of a wasted bedside.
