[USA] 85 300Turbo Diesel WTB

Currently I am seeking someone with a parts car, preferably in the Central Pennsylvania, but would consider a drive to NJ, NY or even MD or VA.

Ive found after a carpet tear-out a 2 inch long rust spot under the carpet in the passenger side rear. Its an odd thing, as it looks like the under-carrage coating is still intact. I could simply cut it out and weld in a piece of steel, but I would like to see if anyone with a parts car would be willing to sell or donate the whole floor piece, so that I have something that looks/feels original. Id like to try to nip this in the bud before winter gets here, and if I don't get ahold of a replacement part, Ill simply get some scrap steel from work and weld it in over break.

Also, I will be having my front Drivers side quarter panel re-painted this weekend. Somewhere in the 25 years of life of this car, it took (IMHO) a childs bicycle handle right in the panel. The dent is the only real dent on the whole car. I will be removing the black and silver body molding, and was under the assumption that the red "cranberries" would need replaced. Is there a good spot to source these new, or does anyone have any that they would like to sell my way.

These 2 things are critical...the floor being the first.

I think the cranberries are available from your dealer, not too expensive from what i recall. Do you have an Ace Hardware close? For my newer cars, I always have good luck finding clips there.
