    1981 Tercel Sedan w/ only 29K miles

    I just bought this and will try to get a photo up soon. Its in fair condition except for some rust spots in front (about 6 inches by 4 inches). What is the best way to remove them? Ive tried Naval jelly but it didnt remove very much.

    Why not a wire wheel?

    These are the first shots. Ill have to take more later. They came out too dark but there are very few blemishes on most of the body even though there are some small rust spots in various places.

    Front passenger side;

    Unfortunately the red pinstriping & Tercel logo cant be seen very well;

    Driver side;

    Interior is very clean. No rips in the upholstery or sun damage.

    Wow, that looks really clean except for the area under the front bumper.

    The interior looks spotless :shock: Ben will like that blue interior

    The interior is practically spotless. The only drawback is its an automatic but with only 29K on it I couldnt resist. :mrgreen: Im going to have it cleaned up and the rust removed. Of course if I can get the money together Ill convert it to the 4-speed and rebuild the engine.
