    Looking for a couple of pieces of rust-free sheetmetal from a suburban (81-91 if that matters).

    1) Driver's side, big rear window: I need the metal about 3' long, 6-8" tall from right below the glass (includes the lip for the weatherstrip to mount on). The section must include the part right under the middle of the window because that's where mine is rusting out. This will be a cut-out and weld-in repair on my part, so if you cut the section out with a sawzall or die-grinder, that would be fine. I'm not expecting someone to wreck a perfect tub, but maybe there's a wrecked tub in a junkyard somewhere outside the rustbelt.

    2) Same type of cut-out deal as #1...this time with the passenger side rear wheel arch. Need pretty much the whole arch and 6" all the way around.

    3) DELETED, bought some barn doors.

    Anybody out there that can help a guy who's trying to keep his 'burb alive?

    You just need to borrow a trailer and take a little road trip this summer. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Last week at the local pick-n-pull I saw two Suburbans with straight, rust free bodies. Stuff here wears out long before it rusts. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Does it go all the way up and include the lip for the side rear window weatherstrip. If not, I'm not all that interested. That side/fender isn't too bad. It's under the window on that side that's bad.

    I have a rust free Texas rear quarter panels for both sides off an 1987 suburban that I am parting and they are still on the vechicle and will cut out if interested. For both complete quarters $200 does not include shipping. If interested pm me.
