Doing a restoration takes a lot of time and effort, and you'll have enough to do before you're finished without grinding and cutting out rusty panels, and then struggling to line up new parts to weld them in place. Let Omix-Ada handle this part of the job so you can concentrate on the engine, suspension, interior, etc. With this body tub kit, all the hard work is done for you. And if you're worried about authenticity and originality, you should know that Omix-Ada has been authorized by Chrysler Group LLC to use the "MOPAR Authentic Restoration" and "MOPAR Official Licensed Product" logos for more than 30 licensed body tubs and panels. This wouldn't be possible unless this body tub kit was a faithful replica of the factory original components.
To construct the body tub, Omix-Ada starts with heavy-duty 16 gauge steel for all side and tail panels, which in most cases is thicker than the original, and heavy-duty 18 gauge steel for the front and rear flooring, all mounting brackets, top cowl assembly, and wheel housings. Then the body tub is completely assembled from the firewall to the tail light panel. It's fitted, welded, and assembled together with the cowl panel, rear wheel housings, dash panel, and glove box already in place. The tub includes all major factory mounting locations, including channels for body mounting. And because shifter and instrument locations can vary, the dash and shifter tunnels are left blank in some applications.
To complete the kit, both front fenders, the windshield frame, a hood and tailgate are shipped with the body tub.
During the manufacturing process, all parts undergo a 7 step metal preparation process, including a 5 bath dip to totally eliminate rust, dirt, and grease, and a phosphate and acid rinse step to ensure corrosion resistance and proper adhesion of the primer. Finally, a new primer formula and special application method are used to ensure a smooth and even finish.
This body tub kit is as close as you can get today to a body off the original Toledo assembly line.
