thezstore.com There is a huge following for these cars too so forums would be good to look at too. I would get glass or body panels from a junkyard if they're in good shape. If there's just surface rust I would clean it up as well as I could and then use POR15 on the rest that I couldn't. Pete is a great guy on all sorts of body restoration and paint. https://www.youtube.com/user/swrnc
