Re: Serious body probs

Any competent panel beater could fix up the rust, but it won't be cheap. You cannot get replacement panels for these cars anymore, so the patches have to be made from scratch. Other option is to haunt the wreckers/Trading post and have a look at what is out there. If you find a body with the rust-free bits you are after, hook in with an angle grinder, cut out the sections you need and get em transferred to your car.

Yep, and do it properly because the A pillar is real important for the strength of the car, especially in a crash.
