well with the color of the vehicle and the time you were scheduled to pick her up at, I guess you have a built in name for her: Midnight express! :D

I had a shipper do that to me. went back and forth with me on the price to ship his car he "just bought" then the day I was to leave to pick it up, he said it was wrecked and wasn't going to buy it afterall.

I then found it relisted on a load board that I use. He then had the gaul to call me a few weeks later with another job. You can imagine my answer for that one "I was busy"

you can fix the body on the cheap if you can do the work yourself....replacing the whole quarter would be easier but more money than patch panels.....if its going to be a wheeler I would not worry about making it perfect

get away with trimming most of the flair out of the rear quarters?

Looks a looooooot like mine did when i picked it up. I've got rust in those same areas. I thought about fixing it at first, but gave up on those ideas once I had to start cutting to fit tires in. I also couldnt bring myself to spend that kind of time on something that would probably have things dragged across it anyways. Now i've got the excuse of "well, i was going to replace that anyways" to not feel bad about fender damage too.

If it really bugs ya an easy "cover up" would be a set of those plastic fender flairs similar to the ones Jeep guys use. Only down side is they like to get ripped off when space gets tight.
