So the more I really look into this roadmaster the MORE body rot I find.
And I am ok with this...
she's had a long neglected life and I know how to treat her

Are the bottoms of the B pillars the same from wagons to sedans?
Seems like a stupid question, BUT ya never know,

Gotta grab some metal from the JY on Tuesday. (In case anyone had nothing to do company is always nice Wink )
Here's my list:

-Driver D pillar
-Both bottom B pillars
-Driver lower quarter
-Passenger spare tire is solid but F it I'll get one anyway,
-Area under chrome belt trim passenger rear wheel well
-Where the tail gate and bumper meet there is some serious rust going on....although that area might not stay Twisted Evil

Any other areas I should check b4 going up?
Any wagon specific areas rot? (besides spare tire and quarters)
Floors all look ok and I'm surprised cut the frame looks frankensteined
Crossmember looks like it's made of bran flakes, (got a better one going in when I do the exhaust)

Pull the 2nd row seat bottom and look where the wheel well meets the pan. My rust-free wagon had holes rotted though there.

Thats where my wagon was leaking and soaked the floor. I have some extra tiger hair and roofing tar if you need help. Arrow

If you can get it



I need this section right ahead of the rocker panel and under the forward section of the cowl. it should have a mount position for the lower part of the fender. If there is a good enough car with this piece you can get I'll gladly take it Very Happy If it's too much trouble don't worry about it, I can make something up eventually.

That the passenger side I assume? Hard to make out what I'm looking at.
Can you do a pic of a car not smashed and circle EXACTLY where you what the cuts made (like in a paint program)

I wouldn't even know how to do that lol, go figure the kid isn't good with computers.

I'll try to take a better real picture of it circled and all of that jazz.
