drip rail??? hmmmmm

WOW... suprise started to "rework the driprail on my '65 c10. yeah like I stated "started". yeah bondo can cover some really big holes. the drip rail is like beyong gond. swiss cheese has nothing on it. Next issue,,,, not only is my driprail gone so is my roof. about a 1" by 24" strip above the "non-rail" is GONE. can not find a replacement roof panel. I bent a new driprail. I just need to get my roof back down to the rail. I could use sheet steel, but there is alot of complex bends in the area I need to replace. Any body out there got a roof???

Man I am sorry to hear that. Seems like you could find a donor roof. My camaro needs a new roof and the panels are available. It is just a intimidating job.
