Going to keep this car original. Here's some pic's of the burnt car. I managed to save the subframe rails, Firewall, floor pans ,rear chassis rails and lots of smaller pieces. When the owner got the car back, he cut 12" approx off both sides and has made a wall hanging.

Getting back into this. Have a NOS Stone guard, stripping the factory black primer and adding some epoxy.

Nice work mate, did you buy the NOS piece off Andrew Clatworthy ??? He was selling heaps of NOS gear a while back.

Doors must be from a standard sedan or wagon.

Most of the parts have come from swap meets over the years, However there was a firm in Napier owned by a ninety year old who had a massive" no reserve" auction. This bloke use to clear out GM assembly plants when models changed over. He had a nos HD wagon body shell and an HQ statesman as well. Prices were low and I spent over two k. Full door skins were going for less than $20 .I also picked up a nos roof for a FB/EK wagon for $ 11.00.
In hindsight ,I should of spent more. The auction was back in 1990. He also had New Chev, Pontiac, Vauxhall, BMC, parts as well.
