    You might have to call few places to find one. For example in my direct area(25mi radius) there are no B Bodies for parts

    (I know I have asked and driven to many yards) Sweet on the other hand who's roughly 60 miles from of me finds them

    all the time. Might need a larger metro area to find them as there is next to no chance of finding a new part like that.

    Unfortunately most places will tell a buyer they don't have one because there's no money to be made on them. They're just too time consuming to remove.

    I'm willing to help, but I'll be honest, it'll take several hours of labor so the parts won't be cheap.

    PM me if you're interested and we can work out the details.

    Indeed the local yard here( 1/4 mi away) had a 95 RM and I only was able to get the rims before they crushed it!

    Do you not have an ac/heat box at all or is yours just beyond repair? Do you have any pictures of yours if you have one? Depending on the damage, sometimes they can be fixed.
