Hello, i am currently restoring my '65 Coupe and have began taking body panels off, i have made it to the roof and noticed the framing under the roof panels are rusted out pretty bad, my body guy wanted me to try and find some replacements but the mustang shop near me has recently closed down, and Dynacorn dosnt sell any coupe roof braces, so i am here looking for advice on either where to find these , advice on how to go along repairing this if their are no replacement parts ,aswell as maybe even finding a donor roof here off someone doing a fastback conversion, if you can help please comment below ,thanks in advance

Your braces aren’t that bad but where the braces meat the wheel well is bad really bad that’s the area you’ll need.

Truthfully he could fabricate it but it’s not gonna be cheap. There’s someone by me in New York with a parts car you could get them off of but you’re in ca
