In my not-too-informed opinion, the hardest part will be the flanges on 
the aluminium shrouds.  I think your body guy will have to fab at least 
some new sections.  He needs to be good with Al fab and a TIG--or 

I don't think the steel sections will be much trouble for a good 
restorer, esp. if he uses Kilmartin or comparable repair sections (or 
can fab his own).
