Not sure if this is a surprise or not but my roof is rusting around the front window. The rest "looks" good.

Can't seem to find a roof skin for the el Camino. Can I use one from an other G-body? If so which one?

Again I only need the front part.

Be better to replace entire panel, roofs tend to get VERY warpy when piecing a large section in. Plus, no seam to rust again, since most people don't properly treat the backside

However, small pieces can be bent and welded in with pretty good success if it's lust the pinchweld, if one has some experience.
