    Just Bought A 72\'

    I am a new member and have a 72' 350/4spd, fact. roll bar, 33's w/Ralley's and live near Denver. It is my 2nd 72', I sold my old one (stupid me) about 9 years ago after I had it nicely restored. The one I just bought is somewhat of a basket case and I have a few questions; It has rust in the front floors, rockers and rear quarters as well as some in the back around the wheel wells and needs body mounts-how important is it to have the top on when I have someone start to cut and weld for me (any ideas for inexpensive body shops greatly appreciated as well)? What should I figure on a budget for labor to do this?-I need about $400 worth of sheetmetal from LMC. I have a new baby and no welder so time is an issue and I must hire the body work out. I also bought 2 used doors off a 72 truck and will just cut the upper frame off-any tricks to fitting these once I have the rust repair done?
