So far, I am still finding out how bad it is. Starting to wonder about getting a new body (or part of) from these guys, but that'll have to wait. They are making the dogleg parts for the rear of the 4Dr hardtops - a part no-one was making when I first started looking for sheetmetal, about 10 years ago.
So I thought I'd drop the rear screen out to see how bad it was - it's baaaad.
All the patches and bodges tell a story as you can see different welding - some gas, some electric and all done before it was customary to seam weld everything with MIG (or even TIG). This is going to take a while and I'm still wondering if the body's just too far gone. As the screen is the same size as the convertible I was thinking of making a convertible - but it's all just dreaming really!
