sorry but no answer

mb1982,

Sorry I don't have an answer for you but I was wondering...
I have a friend from Erie and he told me that in PA if you have a hole that has rusted thru (even if it's only a dime size) your car is not deemed road worthy by the DMV. Is this true?

If you can't get the rear quarter panel, what will you do? Sell it?

reply about rust in pa.

yes its true. they are really cracking down on rusted cars up here
inspections are done by gas stations and repair shops.
two shops in our area had their inspection licenses pulled, and my inspection guy wont even inspect my car because of this.
as far as what am i going to do with my car ?
fix it of course ! i got 300,000 miles out of it and i would like to get another 200,000.
i found the left lower quarter panel from a company in indinana
called adsit it ran me a 134.00, more then i wanted to spend, but oh well.
