    Oh man, looks like you have your work cut out for you. But it seems the trees hit where the car is strongest, and a clean car like that must be saved.
    Got any pictures with less tree in them? Good luck on the restoration.

    This happen a almost year ago, there was major winter storm in Boxing Day.
    It affected all south and western finland.
    I was without electricity for ten days.

    Car is now in much better shape.
    I have pictures in my camera, but need to upload them to net.

    If there was lucky in unlucky situation i think this was one of those.
    Like someone early said that timber hit were car is strongest.
    Photos look quite bad, but now when all damages are checked and listed, there is quite few thing to fix.
    Parts need to replace are:
    Real window
    Chrome decoration trim to window rubber.
    Body panel or C-pilar itīs called
    Chrome decoration in front of air vents
    paint of course, in half of car

    Could some give me a clue where to look for that chrome trim for window rubber?
    Rest of parts i have, but trim what i have is so faded and cracked, even itīs not really damaged.

    I also fixed few rust holes in back of car, but those were so small for almost 40 y.o toyota
