Welcome! The body looks fairly straight. How are the typical rust areas? Is she a runner?

Generally the condition is not bad. Engine ran when I picked her up. But I removed the engine because it sat for almost 20 years in a barn.

And more pictures of the engine removal.

There are some bad rust areas which I will show later on.

Here are more pictures from the worst spots.
Basically it is the co driver floor. Co driver side. The rear where the bumbers were and the drivers side. Seem that it got a hit there once.
The rear fenders have tons of holes from radios.
At the moment I do not know which I need to close since I want to put in all the radios it once had.

I will bet money that was a roll over. I can see where both sides of the dash appear to be pushed down a bit. I'll bet you are going to find a lot of damage around the ends of the dash and under the dash on the sides that has probably been repaired but not so well. That is what I found with mine. You are much more lucky now since CMD is making new panels for them now. They were not when I did mine. They do not have a complete side panel yet but I hear it is in the works. The side panel is actually three separate panels there in the front.

I'm sure he will chime in but I'm guessing he has some of what you need in stock. And with the progress we're making on the A2 rear panel, we will have some available for his next shipment to send over.

We are all patiently awaiting the full side panels. But as I pointed out they are actually three separate panels to make one.

It has been a while since I posted pics. But in the meanwhile I have been working on my project.
