Isn't the Athearn car too tall compared to the prototype cars? That would seem to be an argument

I used Athearn sides on this kitbash. In retrospect might have been just as quick to scratch the sides with better sill relief. Might be done in the same amount of time it took to cut the Athearn sides loose and fix?
