From album "Tiny Toni", Start to Finish by CorvairJim
Without paint, the damage to the rear panel is very apparent. The damage goes below where the bumper goes, down into the air exhaust grille. This could be a problem, since that grille was a 1965-only design. I'll have to modify one from my donor kit's body to replicate the 1965 style. I've never attempted that before!

I have a friend who runs a Corvair restoration shop in Gettysburg, PA. Behind his shop he has a yard with roughly 4 acres of Corvairs for parts. I saw an actual car back there a few years ago with the rear foot or so of the car cut off, and I wondered why he had done that to the car. A few minutes later, I realized why: He needed that part of the body to repair one that had been hit in the back! That's the same method I used to repair this one, just a little bit smaller... and using a brand-new body, as you'll see later on in the album!

Now imagine if this were a real one, how much work you'd have even then to get it back to being correct again.
