Thanks for all of the input and offers to help locate sheet metal. Actually, I was not looking to buy any NOS panels. In 2001 I bought a bunch of of NOS sheet metal ( two std frnt fenders, RH coupe quarter panel, tail panel and front lower valance) as insurance for our two '69s or in case I built another one. Based on the opinions expressed above maybe I made a mistake
So six years later and they are just sitting under my house ( I have a man high "crawl" space at one end) and I was considering selling them to make some storage room and take the money to help push forward on our '67 convertible and my '70 Z. I didn't really know what price to ask (and couldn't or rather wouldn't believe the asking prices at Heartbeat) and I did not want to make it look like a fishing expedition on the forum (especially since I am a little fuzzy on the selling of parts on the CRG forum - PY and NastyZ28 have specific places to sell and trade things). So now I have a better idea of valuation in the real world and some very informative opinions on the qaulity and desirability of NOS sheetmetal.
To sam: I hear what you are saying but I see a lot of rusty California cars right here in San Diego County (and a lot when I lived in the Bay area). Certainly better than the rust belt or back home (Anchoarge, AK) but neglect and a lot of years are neglect and a lot of years even for cars coming out of the southern california desert. Good used sheet metal is where ever you find it I suppose.
