You think you've seen rust? Think again!

This parts car we got needs it's own topic it was so epic
We picked up a parts car with a friend. Same dohc model as mine. 875 kilometers later we were back at the garage...


This thing was taken off the road because the previous owner didn't want to weld it up anymore. We knew the body was scrap. Looking at it now I would imagine he would have needed to be some sort of a wizard because even I have never ever seen rust this bad. We parked it late saturday, got to work on sunday afternoon and finished up late that same day. All the parts worth saving are off now the shell will be scrapped.

Picking it up, looks fairly sorry for itself but not as bad as it turned out to be.

Here's what we ended up with.

Close up right side rocker panel
Image

Left side :D
Image

Same on the inside
Image

Excellent bondo job on hiding the place of the side moldings
Image

"oops"
Image

This corner had 2 outside fenders on top of each other and 2 inner fencers welded on top of each other. All rusted through

The drivetrain will be going in to my friends sedan project and the rear brakes will be going in to his daily. Salvageable front body parts are staying with me and we're keeping the little random pieces as well so that when we need anything we should have them.
Stand up and fight!

Often one wonders how ppl fail to take care of their cars.

Having an annual inspection would help keep the cars that are on the road a bit better,but nothing can help the ones taken off the road.
