You ripped that roof turret off quick, shame you didn't take more photos of the process and where all the spot welds are, that rear beaver panel area looks shagged.

Do you have another piece or was it bent bad?

Yeh the roof skin only took about 2 hours to remove.
I have removed about 4 now so it's not hard at all for me
If you want I can take closer pics of the rails where the spot welds are.
The rear beaver is pretty much shagged. It's full of bog and rust
So unless I can find some one who sells new ones then I will be fabricating a
New one.

If it's not too much trouble I'm curious where all the spot welds on the roof are, so far I'm aware that under the windscreen (leading edge), along the sides in the rain gutters? But around the rear I'm not sure? I know you have to cut at the 1/4 panels where the lead join is, but what about elsewhere?

With regard to the rear beaver panel, are you fabricating the lower section or that whole piece where the tail lights goes also? I imagine the tail light section would be quite a bit of work to get right. Where as the beaver panel should be relatively speaking provided you've got access a roller / english wheel? Just asking cause my beaver panel is shagged, but I think you can order that section from MSA.

And that kids is what free rust looks like, how many S30z's are stripped down to this level when restored? Not many...

It's the only way to do it when a car has as much rust as this one

Pretty sure Tabco sells wheel houses also, looks like you need at least 1 for drivers side :).

I'm guessing she's off to the blasters once the other 1/4 panel is off?
