    Just found the thread after talking to Carl K at BTT50's. He was the one i mentioned may have the parts and was familiar with the accident. sounds like he may be able to help out.

    we are making some progress. the wagon went to the body shop on monday and they have got the "b" post back into place nicely . they also had to open the door skin on the rear door to get the door to open. they also hung the replacement door and the gaps are pretty good, not perfect yet but both doors open and close smoothly. next step is to talk with the adjuster again about the 1/4. these pics also show a little more of the 1/4 panel damage but as you guys said it should pull out ok and there is no rust on the 1/4 to worry about

    Hi Brook,
    Good to see the progress, did the post straighten out okay?
    The green door is the same color as the one used to replace my drivers door.
    When do they expect to be done with the repairs?

    yes the post seems perfect as both doors close smoothly . the shop says 2-3 weeks which is fine by me as i got a new toy to play with
