    If a fiberglass body rusts through, is it okay to patch the hole with steel?

        You have to weld in the patch panels with one of those fiberglass fence posts for a filler rod.

            It's a shame to lose any more than already are, but I would have to agree with you on this one Still, maybe the R2 stuff is in the trunk or laying around to go with it. If I was in the general area I'd definitely go and look- still potentially a pretty valuable parts car.

                  Just turning cars at a profit builds up some cash flow. Sometimes my money is tied up inventory and I'm as broke as can be.

                    I don't know about "rust", but your question reminds me of one 1963 Avanti that I worked on many years ago. It had a steel plate in the right front fender as part of collision damage repair. When we got done with it, there was no longer any steel in the front fender.

                      I'd buy and fix it if it were closer to me, shipping is the deal killer. I'm a sucker for a project and I have the steering box and a rebuilt Avanti R1 looking for a good home that would make this a doable project. Hope someone closer has the same inclination.

                        Gary,

                        You used to get your hands greasy?

                        Thibeault told me your finger nails have never seen a glint of filth.

                          Dave T. must have a short memory. I ran a garage, worked full time in one and worked part time in a restoration shop. I also used to do everything on my own cars including the full tilt on one 1953 Commander Starliner including body panel replacement & repair, mechanical work (engine, front end, brakes, transmission, etc.), interior and lacquer paint job and also near everything on a custom 1949 Mercury (just a couple of examples). Maybe I was just better at cleaning up when it was time to go out to dinner, etc. <G>. Since Dave and I reside hundreds of miles apart, I realize that he only saw me at meets and flea markets.
