Just wondering if the rain gutter (under the rear deck filler) is the same across all of the first generation cars - the dimensions and of course shape.

I need to make a complete one of these for my 68 vert but would consider an attempt to salvage one from another year if it was compatible - even if it was only partly okay for salvage.

As a bit of a side note, I had one guy tell me by phone that he would be looking at around the $2,000 mark to make one from scratch!!! WTF!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked - Needless to say all he would have heard next was that monotoned "beep beep beep beep beep" from the phone as I hung up!

Mike i had a quick look at mine just then with a huge Xmas hangover. Head Bash
I think i would be able to duplicate it, after i start pulling out the rear seat to boot barrier from mine. I have to remove that area to replace the rear shock support floor section over the diff, and it will give me extra access to it. Either that or i can help you to fab one up from the sections you have.
Is it just the side bits or the centre aswell? I cant make it out from the pics in your build thread.

Thanks Scott... I need the complete gutter from left side B pillar wrapping all the way around to the right side B pillar (both sides and centre sections). I think I could probably make it also although you have better space and tooling down your way. I can think of a couple of different ways to approach it if making it from scratch.

1) (Kerry's original suggestion) To make a couple of "J" sections (top and bottom), invert them and fix them together. As for the curves - a bunch of cuts, folds and welds to form it up.

2) Make a template of the shape (top down view) and cut the tops and bottoms then cut out the vertical section and wrap it around tacking it into position as you go then get it TIG'd up all the way around.

In either of the above options I think it would be best to make it in the three separate sections (with some overlap) as that will give you some degree of tolerance when trying to get it all in together.

Will have more of a chat with you about this I think and maybe another day-trip down yonder is due... Thumbs Up

I will check out the wreckers while I am here. By the "gutter" I assume you just need the rain channel & not the whole convertible top support.

I think that's right... the section that hangs from the rear deck filler and wraps forward up both sides to the B pillar. There is a couple of photos on my build thread which should show enough detail... can take more pics to be really certain if needed.
