Inner E-Body Door Rust Repair with AMD

The 1970-74 Mopar E-body vehicles (Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Barracuda) have a large following within the Mopar community. The 1970-71 E-bodies are considered by many to be the pinnacle of the muscle car era and are highly desired by auto collectors.

Unfortunately, whether true or not, the E-bodies seemed to rust more significantly than the A- or B-bodies. Luckily, Auto Metal Direct (AMD) has kept the Mopar world supplied with fresh stamped steel to replace rust or accident damaged metal.

Above: Mopar E-bodies, like all the muscle car era Mopars, are known for rust related problems. AMD has developed an inner door bottom repair panel to restore either door.

The latest product from AMD is a reproduction inner door bottom repair panel for either front door (part nos. 515-1570L (Left Door) or 515-1570R (Right Door). The inner door bottom repair panel replaces the door’s damaged lower shell without the need to replace the entire door shell, which except for the lower portion, may be in a reusable condition.

AMD designed the panel and stamped it from heavy-gauge, high-quality steel with the correct contours, shape, size, bends, and curves to match the damaged original. In addition, the panel has an Electro Deposition Paint (EDP) coating for added corrosion protection.

Above: The panel is designed as a direct replacement for the factory stamping. Every curve, bend, and hole are properly located to ensure a perfect repair. 

Check out AMD’s website for its extensive inventory of high-quality Mopar parts. Furthermore, AMD is a licensed Mopar Authentic Restoration Product supplier, and its staff is dedicated to providing sheet metal to return your Mopar to its previous factory-new condition.
