Maybe so. Mine (the 85) is a true dd. 50-100 average every day. And including cost to replace (think Maine winters, not your piddling VA ones :) I'm sure I am close to that. YMMV.

I've got a sawzall, and I'd be happy to. Won't be for several weeks or more until I am at that point, but when I am, I may take the sawzall to the whole thing just to see how they're put together. ...

Retiring my 81 300TD

So it is with heavy heart that I have decided it is time to take my 81 off the road for good. Damn the DOT and the Salt Lobby (i'm guessing there is one).
Just too much rot to be safe. No panels...
