I'm restoring the old rust bucket mentioned in a previous thread I started awhile back. It has to have the trunk floor replaced, 1 quarter and the passenger floor, along with a patch panel or two here and there. Would it be better if I find an older car (69) and cut all of the parts off of it and use 1969 sheet metal, or would replacement sheetmetal be OK? Would the purists PLEASE comment on this? If you recall, I bought a 69Z that had all of the parts(and I mean all) swapped over to a perfect body, and I aquired the rusted shell from the owner and now I have lost my mind and want to put it all back in its original body shell...your comments are greatly appreciated.
