Wow, big job there, but I love your car and the challenge !

I see its got the rust in all the typical places, actually once you start replacing the panels most of the rust will disappear. You're lucky that sedan panels arent too hard to find unlike coupe stuff.

There was a guy on Ausrotary trying to sell a really rusty sedan (Jay??) several months ago. He wanted a fortune for a rusty shell, is this the same car ? Everythings fixable but I dont think he understood how much $$ and time had to be spent to bring the car up to scratch. It only really had chassis number value to most people.

I look forward to seeing you bringi this car back from the dead, Dont forget to post lots of photos :D

Hey mate,

Welcome aboard, gee a old Mazda filled with bog, you don't see that every day in OZ, NOT!!!

My R100 looked mint but pulled out a lump of bog over an inch thick even though the bloke swore it was a good shell!!

Was the 12A a runner?
