If you need rear side glass I have both sides for free if you pay shipping. I got all new glass and I don't need the org. tinted glass I took out.

Great job and thanks for sharing. My wife once made one of her rare visits to the "Man Cave" while I was working on one of mine. She looked at a frame with engine and running gear installed, fenders on saw horses, and the body hanging from rafters as I was welding from the underside and said..."too bad no one will see or know how much hard work you have done when you get it back together"...I ducked out from under the car body long enough to reply..."That's the goal" and resumed the sweaty task of re-creating what rust and time had taken away. Someday when you are out with the car and somebody strolls by with hardly glancing at the vehicle...you will have the self satisfaction that you really succeeded!:):):)

Carl,
Nice job. I wonder if Sasco has quarters for that. He has them for the 4 door.

This wagon was the FIRST thing I thought of when I saw those quarters in the pics you posted, Ski!:D

If I remember right, it was the piece between the taillight and the rear opening that was the biggest problem for Carl. Kinda like you've sugessted, folks just don't think to check SASCO's computer to see if there's something lying in wait in the engineering bldg on Sample St. I'm REALLY gonna miss SASCO.

Looks good Carl! I'm envious as I really want a Wagon. I'd trade the '58 Commander for the right one. (Yea.. Who in their right mind would trade a long roof for a 58 sedan? [xx(]) I did buy a nice tailgate for a wagon from Dan Miller after the national meet. I at least have the first part of one. After all, the guy who writes "Tailgating With Matthew" needs a tailgate. :)

Ya know, I saw you at Cedar Rapids, but didn't introduce myself as you were deep into conversation with someone else. Now I wish I would've interupted.

Carl, you did yourself proud. That fender looks way better than when Joe and I saw it a few months ago. We're looking forward to seeing the completed car.
