72 Coupe Roof section, Radiator Support, Steering Wheel
#1
I am looking for a Roof section, radiator support and steering wheel all in good decent condition.

The roof I am trying to repair is in pictures below just to show you what I am working with. And underneath the bondo and fiberglass is just rusted holes

I am on a budget. Just a US Marine doing this on the weekend because I love old mustangs and wanted a project. And have many bills to pay. I was told 500 bucks for a professional fiberglass job on the roof but rather see if there is any cheaper way

Thank you for your service.

You are right to replace that roof, you might want to gut the interior and see what the floors look like too. Maybe a clean shell would be worth investing in. I know Don65 has a few roller bodies available that look to be in a lot better shape than your coupe.

I would thoroughly go through the car and honestly assess what you will need to replace to get the body up to snuff. If you get to 2500.00 stop adding and start shopping.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Unless there is a sentimental attachment to that particular car, Jeff is spot on with his advise.

I have found that if Don doesn't have it he will point you to where you need to go. He's a great asset on this sight!

Surprisingly only needs a small section on the floor pans replaced and trunk replaced. How much would a body be? I am on a budget really.
