Wow that's intense. I just helped a friend of mine do restore on his 74 crown.. seems like your scenario.. oh it's just a small thing.. take some parts off.. %^&#^ need to replace panels !

You must think sometimes it would be easier to leave it haha

When I was planning the restoration I talked to so many welders and no one wanted to touch it... Now I understand why!
This is my first restoration project most likely my last LOL!!!! Stick to Designing cars rather then rebuilding them.

Never thinking of just leaving it, but wish I would of waited around for a better body!!! Once the welding is all complete by the end of the month things "SHOULD" run smoother!

It sucks that the body is in that condition but look on the bright side once you are done you will know it was done correct and should last many years. Nice work keep the progress coming.

That metal work is amazing. I can't believe your car had so much rust :shock: . Just goes to show you can never judge a car by a few pictures :) .

My hat of to you sir for giving this Hako a proper restoration 8) . I can't wait to see the result.

Wheels -> I would keep them painted but I just don't like the polished look in general. :tu:
