<< I have a buddy with the following sheet metal dilemma...
 Anyone ever hear of this happening before?
 He says:  "I own a '99 Acura Integra GS-R Sports Coupe.
 The problem is that a number of dents have
 appeared on top of both front fenders and the rear quarter panels.  The
 dents on the driver's side appear to be semetrical with those on the
 passenger side.  I don't believe they were caused by any person.  My
 mechanics, The Meccanic Shop in Valhalla, New York, who are Honda/ Acura
 told me that these dents sometimes appear on the Integras spontaneously
 to light sheet metal and body design,(force dynamics).
 Have you ever heard of such a thing happening on an Acura Integra or any
 other car for that matter - spontaneous self-denting?"

  The curse of unibody construction.  Not all do it, but many do.  I had to 
install subframe connectors on my '89 IROC to keep the thing from looking 
like a pretzle:)

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
