    How bad is it. When i rolled mine the main hoop was fine. only part that sucked was the pillars where the windshield attaches. probably could have gone to a junk yard to get new ones . and the roof V'ed in. but that was kick and high lifted back into place.

    Post up some pics.

    My opinion is that for the work many people go through on repairing serious body damage, (on vehicles not worth it) it's just better to replace the entire tub.

    I bought mine for $400, nothing more than a couple spots of surface rust. Saved me a WHOLE lot of time and effort cutting out panels, welding them in, etc. on my rust bucket '83.

    Swapping a body and all the pieces isn't necessarily easy, but in some cases it may be a better way to go.
