looking at a 73 SB that among other things has a band of thick flaking rust about 2 inches below the tops of both towers running mid-front to mid-rear of the tower in about a 2 inch wide band. Is there a repair kit for this or repair recommendations...or walk..no run away?

thanks

If you want to take on the project, Mid America Motorworks sells the sheet metal for $21.99 plus shipping.  It's item "B" on the link below...

Yes the only bummer for me was Wolfsburg West only sells the firewall for a 71 to 79 super beetle but not the strut tower sheet metal, on the other hand, Mid America does sell the strut tower but lists the firewall 73 to 79 after talking to a sales person she said a tech would call me about the years of the firewall, no tech never called so I ended up splitting orders between the two so it does pay to shop around...  I have a welder so I don't mind replacing sheet metal panels... Good luck on your project if you do pick up the 73...
