what i read [forget where] is that a body shop requires totally separate
facilities, tools, etc for alum and steel, because if any steel shavings,
dust, etc get onto bare alum it will corrode the metal. aka if a sander is
used on steel it can not be used on aluminum. i actually had never heard
that before i had read this in reference to the A8, but hey im NO engineer.
that said the 8 is a KILLER used deal. =)
