Hi, this is my first time posting/blogging, so hope I am doing it right.  The front of my 1968 Aristrocrat Lowliner is in need of some TLC but I'm not sure how to proceed.  I figured the ugly brown added on tin piece in front was hiding something but was surprised when I took it off to see the big rip across the front.  From what I can see, the wood underneath seems to be solid but there is a piece on the left bottom side that looks like it probably needs replaced.

Thanks Tammy and Pat.  I didn't think of looking either place--and pinterest hooked me up with a whole bunch of new idea sources too!  Can't wait to get started :)

If you do not have any luck going original you can always trim it out in diamond plating much like is seen here. http://pinterest.com/pin/33143747229376851/  Not original but it would look much better than an ugly brown tin piece.

Hi. Well other members are not chiming in on this. Try typing siding in the search GORVS box top of the home page. Up will pop 10 pages of posts on siding, including varous sources, Like Fellipe's source, and some good pics of their renovations. Hope this helps!    pat
