Excellent work, straight and smooth. What did you use to cut it? I assume It's heading to another car.

Mel I figured you would be chopping trees for firewood since winter is near. Or are you just practicing on that poor unsuspecting car??

I'm trying to figure how you cut a purple rear section off a white car.confused smiley

One of those weird rusty only on one side cars? The left side looks fine hence you cut off a good left quarter. But the area above the spare tire looks iffy.

You don't find convertible parts cars down here that good, body wise!eye popping smiley

Those doors should sell easily. Except for 'shipping" of course.

I think there is a double panel there that collects dirt and moisture and then it rots sad smiley

Looks to me like both sides will suffer the same fatesad smiley, factory double panel with some kind of rigid foam applied between the two in an attempt to seal out dirt and water. Not sure if this only applies to convertibles confused smiley Convertible owners take noteeye popping smiley

Mine had a little rust under the rocker trim right in front of one of the rear wheels, can't remember which side, think mine was from water being trapped between the trim and the car.

The sealer traps moisture so they all rot in that spot. Early coupes have the same thing except it's on the other side of the wheel opening. You can use sections from a coupe to fix that are on converts and vice versa. Same thing happens in the trunk seams - wherever the panels overlap and have sealer in between them. Early 4 door doglegs are real bad as there are 3-4 overlapping panels with sealer in between all of them. Tough area to stop any rust as the metal was unpainted bare steel.
