Rust issues
« on: June 23, 2018, 04:28:01 PM »
I was wondering if there was anyone in central to northern wv or southern ohio that could do some framework repairs on my 85 eagle wagon. I was told the situation did not look good as there was lots of rust around upper control arms both sides and underneath rocker panels. It's heartbreaking to think of letting my buddy go after all these years as I bought him new. Bodywise it's almost perfect and likewise with the engine. I've been told not much hope but any suggestions you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I wish you luck, but it sounds like it is in some critical areas. If you do find someone, it probably be expensive to fix. It might be cheaper to find a rust free Eagle and use your good parts on it.
