I'm new here, so please forgive my ignorance. I recently purchased a very rusty 1974 W114 coupe. The rockers and fenders are shot. Does anyone make replacement sheetmetal? Or will I have to find a donor car?
Where are you located? If in S. Cal, you can find a doner car that isn't rusty. I'm guessing you are't in S. Cal, or you wouldn't have purchased a rusty 114 coupe though... While fixing up your car, replace the front and rear windshield seals. They are a HUGE source of water leakage. Welcome! (I have a 1971 114 coupe...)
