These parts are the effort of countless hours brain storming and even many more hours of work. The end result is a restoration part for our customer that will NEVER rust and can still be ordered without worry of being discontinued...as GM has done. The GM pieces were stamped steel and were prone to rust as water and moisture tended to "sit" in the corners.
Our stainless steel T-top kits are manufactured from "DOMESTIC" -Type 304 Stainless Steel Alloy.
This is the most widely used form of stainless steel. The stainless is used in a wide range of applications in the automotive,aircraft, food,dairy,pharmaceutical and many,many other fields. This is a "NON-MAGNETIC" alloy and is widely used because of it's high corrosion resistance. The stainless steel is precision cut utilizing an industrial laser to precise tolerances and then formed and assembled into the appropriate panels and assemblies.The manufacturing process is performed with a background of 44+ years of industrial and custom metal forming and fabricating expertise and experience providing the customer with the ultimate and longest lasting product with the utmost quality.
We are only announcing this as we have seen other cold rolled steel copies of our t-top kits. When buying a stainless steel t-top kit from a vendor be sure that it isn't magnetic. If it is, it isn't a GBodyParts Stainless steel T-top kit.
With the increase of stainless steel use since 1998 we have maintained our retail pricing. What has happened was our vendor pricing has slightly increased. With this product being built in The U.S. This has lead other vendors to go to a less expensive form of steel.
