My experience with dies, machinery, etc. is limited; however, I think
stamping dies "wear out" and have to be replaced often to keep the form,
fit, and funtion acceptable. That applies in spades to the body
I suspect that the Chinese "went to school" on this technology transfer
the result is in the cars that they're marketing outside of China.
