Re: body swap or everything else?
>>I THINK that if you wanted to trade your body & those tires for the Tracker that would be cool. My hardtop body has some rust issues & MANY dents now but I have an exo-cage going on soon so a dent/rust free body would be cool.
My HT tub is far from rust free! The rockers are toast, to the point where the seam inside passenger side with the floorbaord is open to the air. The drivers side is just starting to crack through on the same seam. Other than that the floorbaords are pretty solid, though.(I think) The rockers should just be cut out and replaced with steel channel, IMHO.
the area where the flare attachment things are welded to the tub is also pretty crusty all around. The previous owner bondoed it in those places. I had to put on a patch (screwed on sheet metal) over a quarter sized hole in the front fender near the headlight on one side, too, but that looks kinda cool.
at least there is only one dent in it, in the very back passenger corner I squeezed against a tree limb and distorted the body a bit. thats all.
to be fair, before I even came back to this thread I PMed freebird and said he could have the thing if he wants it, so if he wants it I have to give him first dibs on it. If he doesnt feel like driving all the way from PA to get it, though, that idea about trading it for the tracker sounds REAL good. That kills a couple birds with the same stone for me.
