When things are looking good, this happens

Post by CalAltaDubber » Sat Jul 07, 2018 1:30 pm

We have some nice weather here the last few days. Perfect Cabby weather. I get up this morning and find this has happened to Topless Bunny.

Any ideas where to find one?

might try a parts yard. Since that is that pricey, I can't let my spare go.

I think heat.

I might have found one around here.
Brin, are the windows the same from 1980? I know the top is different, but are the windows the same?
If the windows are the same, I found one.

the part number listed for a 1980 is:
155845501
155845501a
So they are the same.

Update
Got a window from an ‘80 that has become a parts car.

Fits great, looks great.
All for $50

Way cheaper than dealing with the insurance man.
