The rust on the top of the rear ambulance box was an obstacle in our build ideas. I could go three ways with this M43: semi-restore it and make one sweet hauler, cut off the roof and much of the body and just make it an extreme barely-legal wheeler, or push it to the back of the lot and put off the project for another five years, only to one day most likely sell it to the next unsuspecting, overzealous victim. If we went the way of the hard-core wheeler, then the rust and all body parts were of little concern. But if we wanted a sweet hauler rig, then massive amounts of time were going to be involved. Hell, massive amounts of time were going to be involved no matter what.
