GM Trunk Repair - Do It Yourself Trunk Repair

Can You See Right Through The Rust Hole In Your Trunk? Fix It Inexpensively With Our Do It Yourself Trunk Repair.

Rust happens. For GM A-body cars like the Chevelle, Buick GS/Special, Pontiac GTO/ Tempest, and the Olds F-85/Cutlass, the Achilles' heel is the lower rear window channel that leaks, dumping water into the trunk floor where it quickly turns to cancer. Our '66 Chevelle rusted exactly where all of these cars do, right at the base of the left rear wheelwell. We called Original Parts Group (OPG) for help with a stamped-steel replacement panel. OPG offers three separate panels for the entire trunk floor for either the '64-'67 or '68-'72 cars. The company also offers a cleaner, one-piece panel that eliminates much of the welding for just the '68-'72 cars. For this job, we needed only the left panel, a few cutting and chiseling tools, our Craftsman 110-volt MIG welder, and a free weekend. Now all we have to do is find that hidden sprinkler under the back window.
