TRUNK Lid Rusted Out

The Trunk lid on my 2 door impala is rusted out beyond repair. I live in Australia and these cars arent very common let alone spare bodys or sheet metal over here. Does anyone know where I could get a rust free trunk lid from the states or anywhere else for that matter?

Here's a bone yard about 25 miles from where I live loctated in Vancouver, WA, USA where I've purchased a lot of my clean Impala sheet metal (among other things) over the years. They currently have many `66's in the yard and they ship anywhere in the world (although I don't imagine that would be inexpensive!), but you might want to give them a call:

There are also a lot of other great yards with clean, rust-free sheet metal located n Arizonna and the South Western US that you can look into.

Here's a fairly straight and rust free `66 from Desert Classics in AZ:

Hope this helps,

Sorry, I didn't see in my previous post that the `66 in AZ is apparently already sold, but you might want to check with them anyway.
