hey guys, I have a 1973 Oldsmobile 98 and to say that its rusted below the rear window would not be doing the situation justice. Its rusted right out.

The rest of the car is good, except for one door which has badly repaired collision damage.

I want to buy a repair section for the rear window area, I think its called the rear deck filler panel to give it the proper name.

As they *all* rust out in this same place, someone must have pressed a sheet metal repair section, right?



that is the cancer right there...

I live the wrong side of the Atlantic to be looking in bone yards for one to cut up.

I'll ship a door over if I can get this repaired right first.

Thanks for any suggestions (which don't involve demolition derby)

I just did a 73 buick century and I thought mine was bad. I filled that one with expanable foam and dura glassed it but yours is beyond that. All you can do on these car is to take a peice of tin and build your own repair panels. Nothing is available for them.I had to build my own 1/4 panel patch panels.

ha,you may not want to see this then..



Thanks for the input. I'm going to see if I can get a section cut out of a dry state car and sent over for the outer repair skin if there is nothing available as a patch section
