Is this the 126 body-style? I have an '87 SDL with an missing 'encalsulation' panel (what they officially call it). I've scanned the nation for a used part because they are ONLY available from the dealer. There is a parts store in CA. (have the # at work) that will sell the front panel for $270 vs. $296. I'm thinking I'll just get the front one. There are no good used ones available as far as what my research yielded.
