Re: What do I need to do?

If fishboy is working on the 67 in his signature then he will only have a drivers side torque box. It was not until the 68 model year that a passenger side torque box was added.

Re: Disaster. No joke.

If Dave's local guy does not work out for you I know someone here that I believe would be willing to do the job. Of course that would mean bringing the car to PA.

Re: Looks like this was an XR7 G

Re: Rust at B-Pillar

I would finish stripping all the paint so you can see the total extent of the rust. Then you can figure out what you will need to do to repair it.

Re: ? about window felts (wiskers)

My guess would be that they are original. The only place making repros is the Repops company so I doubt that they would use a different company name. There are other companies out there that make a generic window felt product. The difference with those companies would be that they do not put the cor...

Re: 67 Standard Red Interior Colors

The upper panel is a 68 decor panel and the lower panel is a 67 standard panel. You can tell quickly by the length of the basket weave piece. The 67 panel has the longer piece of basket weave.

Re: Door panel running cat badge

For some reason I seem to recall that those emblems have 2 studs on them that stick through the panel and then a retainer piece goes over the stud. If that is the case with yours you should be able to gently pry the retainers off to remove the emblems.
