I still say your convertible thread should be a sticky. I was going to patch my trunk. AFTER reading that thread I realized that it wasn't as bad of a job as I thought to do it right. I replaced everything behind the doors and I'm glad I did. I referenced it several times during the project.I wasn't asking for help in the initial post. I was simply showing that no Chevelle is too rusty to save when parts are available. It was meant to be educational to those who may feel intimidated by rust.
