Naw, not if you can get it cheap enuff.Parts are easy to find around.The crusty body is what scares me.I ended up cutting out the whole floor in my project and am putting in stainless steal.No more rust.Got about 25$ into it so far.I was just going to do the back part, but once ya start cutting and looking it 's hard to stop.
