You hit the nail on the head! Other than the typical rust issues, front brake drums are non-existent on the DRW's! Rust areas to check out are above the windshield, cowl, cab corners, floors, drip rails. No replacement body parts are available. Everything has to be handmade. There are some nice body panel build links on the tech page of The FC Connection. |
Good luck and try to find the best body you can!
