That's what I was wondering when I saw this topic posted three times!

There is plenty of sheet metal under the body panels.

Body shell is all FGlass, Plastic, etc.
Everything else that body connects is metal of some type, mostly sheet steel.

None of the body panels are made of metal. The only thing metal on the whole car is the space frame, which is under the body panels.

The backing pieces on the front and rear fascias, for attachment to the fenders and rear clip, are made of stamped metal.

None of the body panels are sheet metal.
