There is alot of repro stuff out there. I don't know how you would "mike" it to know if it is original. Most sheetmetal has some kind of primer on it. You would be measuring the primer and metal. Some, not all I am sure, make the parts out of the same thickness material as the OEM. There should be some kind of identifying marks on the parts to indicate who made them.
