Looks good in the picture anyway. Who knows what it looks like under the braces and if he cut it high enough at the rear.
I drove to WV to get one that looked good. Things like that you almost have to verify before you buy.

If he's a member, hope he posts his stuff on here. I know I'm more likely to buy from a member because they build a reputation.

The rear windows on these lead to a lot of other collateral damage. Put drains in the bottom window channel like/similar to the optional stock offering.

What???? There was actually a factory option for a scupper drain in the channel corners?

I've always been amazed that GM didn't make that standard. Any 12 yr old can look at at a rusted out channel and immediately see that as a solution.

Never made that modification myself though. Anybody have pics of theirs.

They look similar to this. The hoses run through the trunk and pop out the lower rear fender behind the tires. There are a few different styles aftermarket.

Update Pics (72 Cutlass Supreme)

Got the trunk pan installed and etch primed. Decided to lap the joints vs butt joints and use body filler to smooth out the seams.

The repro pans are Golden Star from Tamraz - best price I could find with free shipping. The fit was very good.

Not only was my trunk gone so were the braces, rear window channel and the section between the tails lights. You did a great job, I should have bought the one piece trunk-live and learn!

Here's a pic after spatter paint. I used Zolatone 20 series over medium gray primer and sprayed it with a HVLP primer gun using a 2.0 tip (largest I had). The Zolatone TDS recommended 40-50 psi input but I had to crank it up to 70 psi with the fluid adjustment full open.

I think the next time I do a spatter paint job I'll buy or borrow a pressure pot gun. I have a shutz gun for undercoating and bed liners but I was afraid it would be overkill.

Home made copper tubing drains. Not finished with the install - still need to epoxy seal the scuppers.

EDIT: I used 1/2" copper tubing and over-flared the end. Then contoured the flare with the pick end of a body hammer.
