    Living here in New England were rust is a big problem. My rear body mounts are completely gone. What is the best way to replace them? Anyone know of any aftermarket parts? or should I just fabricate them from raw stock?

    Thanks

    Mounts on the frame, or body? My frame mounts went, I welded a larger plate with a hole in it over the existing body mount. If its rusted out in the tub, you can either fab your own replacement, or buy one from one of the the aftermarket panel makers. I don't know any US ones, as I use Cross Canada Parts.

    The worst seems to be the body mounts. I have not seen anyone offer them aftermarket. bBut it would be easier for me to buy them.

    Thanks
