Or do you know somebody who is?

I need a whole roof, undamaged and rust free from a hatchback.... Don't ask!

It’s not actually an exciting story Peter, I’ve not rolled it or anything!

The doors on MK3’s freeze shut at this time of year in Newcastle, and I’ve pulled the door seal away from the edge of the roof. Or rather, I pulled the door seal and the edge of the roof away from the rest of the roof! It’s seriously rotten behind the front door seals on both sides; I think it’s spot welded along the edge but I’ve never seen one like it before. There’s probably a story to it.... So as the roof skin also has various other imperfections I thought I’d re-skin it, but I can’t find a new panel so I thought I’d carefully transplant one.
