    why the rear was so terribly designed on these cars. when i had mine the rear panel was gone (not as bad as yours but bad enough)

    finally tracked down a replacement from a business in QLD (will not name) but he asked for a second hand panel with a few 20cent pieces of rust spots for $1100...

    good luck with the restoration, hope to see her shiny and happy

    i miss that car so much, it was fantastic to drive (even with MA)... once get my own place and my LUCE upto where i want it will track one of these down for sure....

    having said that, driving it has seeded a dire want to purchase a safari suit, feathered head and grow bushy moustache with some mad sideburns.... love that car

    the sitting position is fantastic in it too

    haha. I turned on the am radio in mine and instantly felt the urge to ring up and complain about something or other on the talkback show.

    I stopped in at the supermarket to get some old spice and some white y fronts as well.

    I admire your dedication and understand why you do it. We have a pair Cosmos/Rx5s that are nearly as bad rust wise but are repairing and restoring them. It would not have been difficult to find replacement ones here in the US however these 2 are unique they are serial number 109 and 111, sister cars and they are identical same colors same options. So I know what you are going through
