Where do you buy new sheets of metal for outer skins on doors, floots, etc?

For a specific application or do you plan to fabricate yourself? If it's the latter, check with a sheet metal supplier. They'll have an assortment of thicknesses. My son had a 75 Ford Maverick and needed floor pan work; we went to the local metal shop and bought a sheet of metal. You can try a popular source for specific make - JCWhitney's, for example - usually find VW body parts, Corvette America for that car; Mac's for almost any Ford - including wood floor boards for the early models. Check out Kanter's, or British-Victoria or Moss Motors for MGs, Austin-Healey's, & Triumpts

mikollection, I was worried about the after market reproduction product metal. For instance, I saw some replacement skin pieces for cut-outs onlne at a parts dealer. I hesitate whether or not to buy the metal without knowing if it will be the same thickness as my original. thanks

Thanks fellas. What I have is a 54' GMC 3/4T Panel Truck. From what I've found out the 54 pickup floor panels will not work in the panel truck. And, I cannot find anyone with a 54 floorboard. So it looks like fab work coming up.
