Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

i've looked and looked, you cannot find a picture on the internet of the rear most part of the trunk floor, or the piece of wood. maybe it's not wood. i've never seen one. i would think it's there...

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair
