No worries with galvanic corrosion? Replacement aluminum panels are pretty cheap.

Doesn't seem like a crazy question even in a for sale thread. Sort of like asking if a particular tire will rub on full lock, the proper method of install may benefit the sale.

I am not worried about corrosion on the vehicles I am installing stainless on, I am not open to conversation regarding hypotheticals regarding corrosion. I am making stainless replacement panel blanks, in my open stainless is is overall a better product and cheap might be good for some ppl. I am looking for higher quality alternatives then most of the YRM crap that is out there...

Have you tried to fit any of the YRM after market body panels? When you have then you will know what I am talking about. Yes for one a higher quality material to start and better fitting second... Good enough for me...

Ok, please provide the specific grade of stainless such that any of your prospective customers can gauge for themselves the magnitude of galvanic reaction the panels will have with the materials to which they will be joined. I'm all for developing better products and informed decisions are a part of that process.

Stainless steel cappings would be an instant hit.

Only great experiences with YRM products.

Is it harder to drill holes in the stainless?

Also is it harder to paint them?

Stainless in my opinion is no harder to work then any other material, as for paint a standard scuff and etch prime then your compound or base.
